Report of the Committee of the Whole House


Then a motion being made, and the question being put, that the Report of the Committee of the whole House, be received this day four months,

It passed in the Negative.

Ordered, That the said Report be now received.

Sir Charles Whitworth accordingly reported the amendments of the Committee, which were all agreed to by the House except one.

A clause was then added to the Bill authorizing the Court, where an action is depending, to grant a view, upon application of either of the parties.

Another clause was offered, to be added to the Bill, that no Sheriff shall continue in office longer then one year; and no Sheriff, or Under Sheriff, shall continue more than two years successively.

And the said clause was once read, and, with leave of the House, withdrawn.

Then an amendment was made, by the House, to the Bill.

Ordered, That the Bill, with the amendments, be engrossed.
