Procedure: twenty-third article read, amendments considered

Then the twenty-third article of union was again read and, after some reasoning, an overture was given in for adding a clause thereto in these terms: with this express provision that none of the peers of Scotland shall have personal protection within Scotland for any debt owing before the commencement of the union.

As also, another overture was given in for adding a clause thereto in these terms: that all the peers of that part of Great Britain now called Scotland, qualified according to law, shall, after the union, have right to sit covered in the house of peers of Great Britain, notwithstanding that the right to give vote therein belongs only to the said sixteen peers who are to be summoned in the manner appointed by the preceding article.

And after reasoning upon the said two overtures, and upon two separate motions, the first in relation to the allowing all the peers of Scotland to sit upon the trial of the peers of Britain, and the other in relation to their precedency according to their patents, the vote was stated in these terms, approve the twenty-third article of union or alter, reserving entire the consideration of the above two overtures, and whether the same shall be added to the article, and it carried approve.
