"And we further recommend and propose, that nothing herein contained shall prevent us from recommending and proposing any other measures relating to the Dean and Canons of the said collegiate church of Westminster, in conformity with the provisions of the said recited Acts, or either of them."

And whereas notice of the said scheme has been duly given to the Dean and Chapter of the collegiate church of St. Peter, Westminster, and no objection has been made thereto:
