Common or Waste Lands; but it is doubtful whether the Terms of 5 the aforesaid Provisions of the first-mentioned Act include such last

mentioned Lammas and other Commonable Rights : And whereas Doubts are also entertained as to how the Monies to be paid as the Price or Compensation for such Rights of Common and Commonable

Rights as aforesaid ought to be paid and applied under the Provisions 10 of the said first-recited Act: And whereas it is just and necessary,

for the Purpose of effecting the Purposes of the said Acts, that on Payment of the Sum of One thousand five hundred Pounds by the said Battersea Park Commissioners all Rights of Common and

Commonable Rights whatsoever in, over, or upon all the Lands 15 comprised in the said Schedule to the first-mentioned Act, and

which have been purchased as aforesaid, or which shall hereafter be purchased, should be absolutely extinguished; but it is apprehended that the same cannot be completely effected without the Authority of Parliament: May it therefore please Your Majesty that it may

be 20 enacted; and be it enacted by the Queen'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, as follows:
