Allowance to the lords of erection for collecting the taxations

The estates, considering that the lords of erection who have surrendered their superiorities in the king's majesty's hands will be burdened with the collecting of the taxation of their erections as formerly they were before the surrenders, which will be very chargeable and expensive to them, and whereof they will get no allowance nor relief as formerly they were wont to do from their vassals, feuars, tacksmen and pensioners, therefore the estates allow to them the sum of £100 out of every £1,000 of taxation which they shall make account of out of their erections.
