ORDERED, That the House be put into a Committee again, to proceed further in the said Bill, on Tuesday next, at Twelve a Clock.

Act to prevent the Growth of Popery, Bill to explain.

The Judges, pursuant to Order, delivered the Bill drawn by them, intituled, "An Act for explaining and better Execution of an Act, intituled, An Act for the further preventing the Growth of Popery."

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for explaining and better Execution of an Act, intituled, an Act for the further preventing the Growth of Popery."

ORDERED, That the said Bill be read a Second Time on Monday next, at Twelve a Clock.

After some Time, the House was resumed.

And the Lord Halifax reported, "That the Committee had gone through the said Bill; and think it sit to pass, with One Amendment."

Which was read Twice, and agreed to.

Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for prohibiting all Trade and Commerce with France."

The Question was put, "Whether this Bill, with the Amendment, shall pass?"
