  4. From March 1482 the acts of the Lords Auditors are kept in separate volumes, intermixed with the acts of the lords of council. The two separate records are therefore blended, and little effort was made by the scribes to differentiate the acts of lord auditors from the acts of the lords of council. Often the only way to identify which body was responsible for a particular act is a minor difference in phraseology used in the acts, and by the tendency to provide a daily sederunt for the acts of the lords of council. See Athol Murray's introduction to ADC, iii, (esp pp. xv-xvi) for an account of the additional problems created by previous editors of the acts of the lords auditors and lords of council, especially in March 1483. From this point, the presentation of the acts of the lords auditors as part of the mainstream acts of parliament is of necessity somewhat artificial. Arguments can be made that the acts of the lords auditors after this point deserve to be treated together with the acts of the lords of council. However there is no editorial approach that adequately represents the nature of the acts of the lords auditors both before 1483, where they are recorded in the main parliamentary register, and after 1483, when they are placed with the acts of the lords of council.
