Conference with Lords.
Mr. Solicitor General reports from the Committee appointed to prepare Reasons to be insisted on at a Conference with the Lords, to justify the Additions and Alterations of this . . ., to the Amendments sent from the Lords, to the Bill against Conventicles, the several Reasons by them agreed: Which were approved of by the House; and the Matter left to the Management of Mr. Solicitor, and the other Members of the Committee: And Sir Robert Carr is to desire a Conference on this Matter with the Lords.
Lords agree to several Bills.
Conference with Lords.
Mr. Speaker, The Lords have commanded us to acquaint you, that they have agreed to the Bill, sent from this House, for settling Measures; the Bill on the Behalf of the Dean of St. Paul's; and the Amendments to the Bill of the Lord Strangford: And do desire a present Conference with this House, upon the Amendments to the Bill of Naturalization.
Mr. Solicitor reports, That the Lords did not agree to the Additions of Names, by Amendment from this House, to the Amendments from them; because though it had been a Thing of late time used and practised, yet, upon Search into the Statute which directs the Manner of Naturalization, they found it not so regular, nor according to ancient Use; for that, in strictness, the Parties ought to be sworn before the Third Reading of the Bill.
Conference with Lords.
Mr. Solicitor reports, that they had delivered the Amendments of this House to the Amendments of the Lords, to the Bill against Conventicles; and also their Reasons, approved by the House, for Justification thereof.
