Protest for the privileges of the barons by George Lockhart [of Carnwath]

I, George Lockhart of Carnwath, do protest for myself and in name of such other barons as shall adhere to this my protestation, that neither this vote nor any other vote, conclusion or article in this treaty of union shall prejudice the barons of this kingdom from their full representation in parliament as now by law established, nor in any of their privileges and particularly their judicative and legislative capacity, of which they are deprived by the terms of this treaty of union, and I crave this my protestation to be admitted and recorded.

George Lockhart.
