Collection from Members.
Resolved, upon Question, a Message to be sent presently to the Lords, to signify; that, whereas their Lordships desired a Conference with this House, by a Committee of Eighteen of their Lordships, this House will give their Lordships a Meeting, by the same Committee of 36, that Yesterday they did, at such Time, as their Lordships shall think fit.
This Committee hath Power from the House, only to hear and receive the Lords Propositions, if any offered, without giving any Answer unto them. 2ly, An Introduction to be made of the Desire of this House, of all fair Correspondence with their Lordships, and our Care of maintaining the King's Prerogative; and, in Conclusion, after the Lords Propositions made, to give Reasons why they enter into no further Debate, nor give no present Answer ; videlicet, l. Because they understand that which was delivered Yesterday, to be in Nature of a Message : 2ly. Because these things have been weightily debated in the House, and are fit for the Consideration of the whole House. These Reasons to be given by the Committee at first, if any Question, move from their Lordships to that Purpose.
