Queen's Jointure Bill.
The Committee on the Bill for the Queen's Jointure met this Morning, notwithstanding the Meeting thereon was appointed to be in the Afternoon. And their Lordships returned the Bill fit to pass, with some small Amendments, which were presently Twice read, allowed, and ordered to be ingrossed.
Conference concerning the Commission to raise Money by Impositions, etc. reported.
This Day the Lord Keeper reported the Conference with the Commons, touching the Commission dated ultimo Februarii last, to advise of raising of Money by Impositions or otherwise. After a short Preamble, his Lordship commanded the Clerk to read the said Commission; which being ended, he shewed the many Inconveniencies which the Commons observed therein, and that they chiefly stood upon it, "That to raise Money by Impositions, without Consent of Parliament, is directly against the Liberty of the Subject, and trencheth upon the Propriety of their Goods, contrary to the Judgement lately given this Parliament; videlicet, contrary to His Majesty's gracious Answer to the Petition of Right; and that the Commons do demand that this Patent may be damned and canceled, and the Inrollment thereof to be vacated; and the Warrant also for the Great Seal to be damned and canceled.
Committee to draw up a Message to the King, for canceling this Commission.
This Report ended; the Lords long debated the said Complaint and Demands of the Commons. And, in the End, their Lordships appointed a special Committee, to draw up a Message to the King, from this House, for canceling of the said Commission.
And for burning Dr. Manwaring's Books.
And the said Committee are to draw up a Message also to His Majesty, from the House, for the burning of Dr. Manwaringe's Books, and the Submission which he is to make, according to the Judgement of the 14th of June.
D. of Bucks asks Leave to make a Protestation in the H. C. touching a Speech at his own Table, of which he is falsely accused.
The Duke signified unto the House, That he is informed one of the House of Commons hath affirmed that his Grace did speak these Words at his own Table; videlicet, "Tush! it makes no Matter what the Commons or Parliament doth; for without my Leave and Authority, they shall not be able to touch the Hair of a Dog." And his Grace desired Leave of their Lordships, That he might make his Protestation in the House of Commons concerning that Speech; and to move them, that he which spake it of him (being a Member of that House) might be commanded to justify it, and his Grace heard to clear himself.
To do as he thinks proper.
Protests his Innocence.
Whereupon the Duke gave their Lordships Thanks, and protested, upon his Honour, That he never had those Words so much as in his Thoughts. The which Protestation the Lords commanded to be entered, that the Duke may make Use thereof, as Need shall be.
Subsidy of the Temporality.
Subsidy Bill of the Temporality.
And Exception was taken to the said Bill, for that, in the Preamble thereof, the Commons are only named, and the Lords omitted. And it was agreed, To have a Conference thereon between both Houses, but the Bill not to be sent back again unto them.
Message to the King, touching the Commission for levying Money by Impositions, etc.
"May it please Your most Excellent Majesty, Whereas there is transmitted unto us, from the House of Commons, a certain Patent under the Great Seal, bearing Date the last Day of February last, authorizing Thirty and Three of Your Majesty's Counsellors to consult and advise Your Majesty of Ways to raise Monies, by Impositions or otherwise; although we have received Satisfaction from the Lords of Your Majesty's Council that this was no more than a Commission or Warrant for Advice only; yet, to free Your Majesty's Subjects of all Jealousies, and for that this Way of requiring of Advice under the Great Seal doth seem unusual; we do humbly beseech Your Majesty to cancel the said Commission, and, if it be inrolled, to vacate the same also; and, if it be not inrolled, to stay the Inrollment thereof; and that the Warrant for the same may be canceled also; and to give the Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England Order to effect this with all convenient Speed."
Message to the King, concerning the suppressing Dr. Manwaring's Books.
"May it please Your most Excellent Majesty, The Lords having taken into their Consideration a Book set forth by Dr. Manwaringe, called Religion and Allegiance, and withall many dangerous Passages and Inferences, and scandalous Aspersions, contained in the same, for the which they have already given their Judgement and Sentence upon him, do beseech Your most Excellent Majesty to grant Your Royal Proclamation, to call in the said Books, that they may be all burnt, in London and Westm. and both the Universities; and for the inhibiting the Printing thereof, upon a great Penalty; and that Your Majesty will give present Direction to Mr. Attorney General to effect the same."
