Transcription: I. That the plan and arrangements of ‘The Mirror of Parliament’ shall be so extensive and effectual, as to admit of ALL the proceedings and debates of Parliament being reported in great detail, and with the utmost practicable fidelity.
II. That EVERY MEMBER’S SPEECH upon every question shall be fully given, from short hand notes, in the same proportion of extent; without regard to the PUBLIC or PRIVATE nature of the business discussed; or to the party, the principles, or the greater or less reputation of the speaker.
III. That, prior to the publication of each number of the work, a PROOF of every reported speech it is to contain may be seen by every subscriber, respectively, by whom such speech shall have been delivered, - in order that he may, if he please, revise the same. This mode of proceeding will be calculated to guarantee the authenticity of such reports beyond the possibility of impeachment.
IV. That the work shall be PUBLISHED, ONCE A WEEK, during the Session of Parliament; and that each number shall comprize the debates of the preceding week.
V. That a short abstract of all parliamentary papers and documents shall be given in the numbers following the respective dates of their publication; together with lists of divisions, and copious indices for every separate number and for the general work.
