Canary Company Patent.
The Lord Privy Seal reported, "That the Lords
Committees for Privileges, according to the Direction of the House, have perused several Precedents
upon the Occasion of the Patent concerning the
Canary Company; and their Lordships have commanded him to acquaint this House only with Two
Precedents, which they conceive to be most suitable
to the Matter referred to them."
The First Precedent was a Petition presented to the
King against Papists, the 9th of August, 1625, and the
King's Answers to each Particular.
The 6th and 8 Paragraphs were read.
The other Precedent was the 13th of June, 1628,
for canceling and vacating the Commission for levying
Money by Impositions; which was also read.
Hereupon the House entered into Consideration of
the Address, as it is before this House from the House
of Commons, touching the Patent of the Canary Company, whether it be suitable to the ancient and Parliamentary Way of Proceedings.
And, after a long and serious Debate thereof, the
House agreed to send a Message to the House of
Commons; and on Monday Morning next the House is
to consider of the Matter of that Message.
ORDERED, That the Committee for the Bill for encouraging of Coinage do meet To-morrow Morning,
at Ten of the Clock.
And the Committee for the Bill for illegitimating the
Children of the Lady Anne Ross do meet To-morrow
in the Afternoon, at Three of the Clock; to which
Committee the Lord Awdley is added.
