3rd APRIL, 1828.

The Right Honourable John Lord Lyndhurst, Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain, by and with the advice and assistance of the Right Honourable Sir John Leach, Master of the Rolls, and the Right Honourable Sir Lancelot Shadwell, Vice Chancellor of England, doth hereby order and direct in manner following; that

is to say,

I. That every plaintiff, as well in a country cause as in a town cause, shall be at liberty, without affidavit, to obtain an order for a subpoena returnable immediately, but such subpæna in a country cause is to be without prejudice to the defendant's right to eight days' time to enter his appearance after he has been served with the subpoena.

II. That a writ of subpæna to appear, or to appear and answer, shall be sued out for each defendant, except in the case of husband and wife defendants; and that the costs of all such writs shall be costs in the cause. [Altered by Order 5 of 1833, p. 306, post.]

III. That a defendant in a country cause shall no longer be permitted to crave the common dedimus; but shall either put in his answer within eight days after his appearance, or shall obtain the usual orders for time. [Altered by Order 10 of 1833, p. 308, post,]

IV. That in all cases, whether the defendant's answer be filed in term time or in vacation, the plaintiff shall be allowed two months to deliver exceptions to such answer; but if the exceptions be not delivered within the two months, the answer shall thenceforth be deemed sufficient, and the plaintiff shall have no order to deliver exceptions nunc pro tunc.

V. That when exceptions taken to an answer for insufficiency are not submitted to, the plaintiff may at the expiration of eight days after the exceptions are delivered, but not before, unless in injunction causes, refer such answer for insufficiency; and if he do not refer the same within the next six days, he shall be considered as having abandoned the exceptions ; in which latter case such answer shall be thenceforth deemed sufficient.

VI. That if the plaintiff do not, within a fortnight after a defendant's second or third answer is filed, refer the same for insufficiency on the old exceptions, such answer shall thenceforth be deemed sufficient. [Altered by Order 6 of 1831, p. 300, post.]

VII. That if the plaintiff do refer a defendant's second or third answer for insufficiency on the old exceptions, then the particular exception or exceptions to which he requires a further answer shall be stated in the order.

VIII. That if upon a reference of exceptions the Master shall find the answer insufficient, he shall fix the time to be allowed for putting in a further answer, and shall specify the same in his report, from the date whereof such time shall run, and it shall not be necessary for the plaintiff to serve a subpoena for the defendant to make a better answer. And


defendant who shall not put in a further answer within the time so allowed, shall be in contempt, and be dealt with accordingly. [Altered by Order 18 of 1833, p. 311, post.] IX. That if upon a reference of exceptions the answer be certified sufficient, it shall be deemed to be so from the date of the Master's report; and if the defendant submit to answer without a report from the Master, the answer shall be deemed insufficient from the date of the submission.

X. That upon a third answer being reported insufficient, the defendant shall be examined upon interrogatories to the points reported insufficient, and shall stand committed until such defendant shall have perfectly answered such interrogatories ; and shall pay in addition to the four pounds costs heretofore paid such further costs as the Court shall think fit to award.

XI. That no order shall be made for referring any pleading or other matter depending before the Court for scandal or impertinence, unless exceptions are taken in writing and signed by counsel, describing the particular passages which are considered to be scandalous or impertinent, nor unless such order be obtained within six days after the delivery of such exceptions.

XII. That when any order is made for referring an answer for insufficiency, or for referring an answer or other pleading or matter depending before the court for scandal or impertinence, the order shall be considered as abandoned, unless the party obtaining the order shall procure the Master's report within a fortnight from the date of such order, or unless the Master shall within the fortnight certify that a further time, to be stated in his certificate, is necessary, in order to enable him to make a satisfactory report; in which case the order shall be considered as abandoned if the report be not obtained within the further time so stated; and where such order relates to alleged insufficiency in an answer, such answer shall be deemed sufficient from the time when the order is to be considered as abandoned.

XIII. That the plaintiff shall be at liberty, before filing a replication, to obtain, upon motion or petition without notice, one order for leave to amend the bill ;
