Notice.- It may be here stated that the Lists, though generally correct, possess no official authority.

If, therefore, the number of names, and the numbers given of divisions do not coincide, the latter must be considered as having the preference for accuracy.

(As ordered to be printed 25 June, 1831.)

[Note.—The Words printed in Italics are proposed to be inserted in the Committee.]

Preamble.]— WHEREAS it is expedient to take effectual measures for correcting divers abuses that have long prevailed in the choice of Members to serve in the Commons House of Parliament, to deprive many inconsiderable Places of the right of returning Members, to grant such privilege to large, populous and wealthy Towns, to increase the number of Knights of the Shire, to extend the Elective Franchise to many of His Majesty's Subjects who have not heretofore enjoyed the same, and to diminish the expense of Elections; Be it therefore enacted, by The KING's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the Authority of the same.

1.-Certain Boroughs to cease to send Members to Parliament.] That cach of the Boroughs enumerated in Schedule (A.) to this Act annexed, shall cease, after the end of this present Parliament, to return any Member or Members to serve in Parliament.
