be a considerable National benefit. —

2 That the choice of the Spot in question could not upon the
whole be prejudicial to the Neighbourhood of that Spot. —

3. That on the contrary it would be beneficial to the Neighbourhood.—

4. That with as few and as slight exceptions (if any) as in the case
of such a Transmutation of property can occur, it would be beneficial
to every Description of Persons, interested in point of proprietary Right. —

5. That, at the same time, under the Circumstances of the case, no
express general consent could reasonably be to be expected. —

6. But, that is of the number of those cases, where consent
ought not to be looked upon as requisite.—

7. That such Consent, not being to be required by the Legislature,
need not be, nor ought to be, applied for in the character of a
condition sini que non, on the part of the Government, by whom, if at
all, the Bill will be brought forward. —

8. That the attempt to act in all points in concurrence with
two such unwieldly bodies as a Vestry composed of 50 Members
and the Dean and Chapter, would present such a prospect of
delay as no Individual concerned in the execution of the measure
would expose himself to, especially in addition to a chain of altogether
unexpected (not to say unexampled) delays) that have

9. That in a case so perfectly in point as to have embraced the
same parochial District and the same parties, an Act creating
powers of the same sort, but much stronger and attended with
prodigiously greater hardship, and having much less strong
(if any) Public Ground for its support, was passed, not only
without application for consent, but against a strong and general
opposition, on the part of the parties principally interested. —

10... That the proposed improvement of the Waste cannot be
rejected, but for reasons, which, if admitted, would set up a
perpetual Bar to its ever being improved at all. —
