Riding of parliament

The translation of the French text is as follows:

Scotland governs itself somewhat after the same laws as England, which consist of the civil law, ordinances of the kings and acts of parliament, which they call municipal laws. The royal authority over Scotland has the same prerogative as in England, for adjourning, proroguing or dissolving parliament, and increasing or diminishing the number of deputies which compose it. for more click here
