Procedure: protest
Protestation for Glasgow

Patrick Bell, provost and commissioner for Glasgow, desired and protested that the ordering of the house appointing burghs to sit as they are called by the roll of burghs may only be restricted to this present parliament, and that in respect the same is only set down by the present clerk of the burghs without warrant and for the most part contrary to other rolls and former clerks and in direct prejudice of the place due to the said burgh, whereupon Patrick Bell, commissioner foresaid, asked instruments, and protested for a due and competent place another time.
