Against scandalous and unworthy Ministers.
Against prophane Swearing.
The Bill against common and ordinary Swearing by the Name of GOD in vain, was brought into the House, by the the Lord Archbishop of Canterb. first of the Committees, who declared that the Lords Committees did not find the Bill like to reform the great and grievous Fault thereby justly condemned; howbeit, forasmuch as the Intent and Shew of the said Bill is good, therefore, to the End it should not be conceived that this House doth slightly regard thereof, the Lords Committees do think good that Conference be had with the Lower House, concerning the same, if this House shall so allow; whereupon divers Opinions were delivered, but no Resolution had.

Lastly, his Lordship moved, That, if it might stand with the Pleasure of the House, the particular Report of the Proceeding Yesterday may be referred until a Second Conference be had, and then the Work of both Days to be at once delivered to their Lordships, if such Second Meeting and One entire Report may stand with the Liking of their Lordships.
Agreed generally, That there shall be a Second Conference required from this House, and the Report of Yesterday's Proceedings to be respited until the Labour of both Days may together be here delivered to their Lordships.
Message to the H. C.
For a second Conference on the Bill for restraining the Canons Ecclesiastical not confirmed by Parliament.
That whereas, upon Motion from this House, there hath been a Conference between certain Lords Committees of this House, and the Committees of that House, concerning the Bill sent from thence hither, intituled, An Act restraining the Execution of Canons Ecclesiastical, not confirmed by Parliament; forasmuch as Time served not then fully and sufficiently to proceed therein, in such Sort as was desired, and the said Lords Committees having moved this House for further Conference to be had in that Cause, their Lordships do accordingly move, That another Conference may be had, touching the Premises, on Monday next, at Two of the Clock in the Afternoon, in the Painted Chamber: But, because, at the Return of the said Messengers, the Lords were informed that the Lower House was departed, therefore it was Agreed, That the like Message shall be sent on Monday, for a Conference, on a Time and Place then to be appointed.
