622. Nature of the Commons claim to financial privilege.

The Commons claim that they may treat as a breach of their privileges by the Lords not only the imposition or increase of a charge subject to privilege, but also any alteration, whether by increase or reduction of its amount or duration, mode of assessment, levy, collection, appropriation or management. An alteration in respect of the persons who pay, manage or control the charge or in respect of the limits within which the charge is leviable will also be treated as a breach of privilege
