Act regarding salvo jure cujuslibet

Forasmuch as in this present session of parliament there are many ratifications passed wherein diverse and new clauses are inserted which may be prejudicial to particular parties' rights and derogative to many and sundry laws lawfully made and established of before, albeit the meaning of the estates be at this time, as it was ever in all preceding parliaments, that by no act of ratification any other party should be hurt or prejudiced; for remedy whereof, it is statute and ordained that no ratification passed in this session of parliament shall be prejudicial to any private parties' right, but that the said ratifications be always understood, whether the same be general or special, to be saving the right of anyone.
