  3. The continued merging in the manuscript registers between the acts of the lords auditors contained in the registers of parliament (NAS, PA series) and the registers of the acts of the lords of council (NAS, CS series) provides difficulties to satisfactory presentation of the respective records in edited form. Both judicial committees' decisions can be found in both series of registers at particular points in the reigns of James III and James IV. In 1496, the final parliament for which the acts of the lords auditors survive, all the acts are recorded in the registers of the acts of the lords of council. Phrases such as 'in the presens of the lordis auditouris' or 'in the presense of the lords of counsel' are often the only thing that can differentiate which committee made particular acts. The scribes themselves often made mistakes as to which body was behind an act, as deletions and corrections make clear, and ambiguity as to which body is responsible for an act can arise. Nevertheless, the scribes generally took care to continue to distinguish the two bodies. Back
