Supply Bill, for disbanding the Forces.

The House was adjourned into a Committee, to consider further of the Bill concerning granting a Supply, for disbanding the Army.

The House being resumed:

The Earl of Clarendon reported, "That the Committee of the whole House have considered the Bill for granting a Supply, for disbanding the Army; wherein they have made several Amendments, and added some Provisos, which are offered to the Consideration of the House."

The said Amendments and Provisos were read Twice, and Agreed to; and the Bill ordered to be read the Third Time this Afternoon.

Message from H. C. to sit a while.

A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Mr. Thynn and others:

To desire their Lordships would be pleased to sit some Time, that they may bring up some Business of great Importance.

The Answer returned was:

Answer.

That their Lordships will sit a convenient Time.

H. C. with their Speaker, attend.

The House being made acquainted, by the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod, "That the Speaker, with the Commons, was at Door, with his Mace."

The House directed the Lord Chancellor to sit on his Woolsack, and receive them.

The Speaker, with the Commons, being come up to the Bar (but the Mace was not advanced), said,

The Speaker demands Judgement against the Earl of Danby:

"My Lords,

"The Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses, in Parliament assembled, are come up, to demand Judgement, in their own Names and in the Name of all the Commons of England, against Thomas Earl of Danby, who stands impeached by them, before your Lordships, of High Treason, and divers high Crimes and Misdemeanors; to which he has pleaded a Pardon; which Pardon the Commons conceive to be illegal and void; and therefore they do demand Judgement of your Lordships accordingly."

To be taken into Consideration.

ORDERED, That this House will take this Demand into Consideration To-morrow Morning; and all the Judges and Mr. Attorney General are to attend this House.

Killigrew, Groom of the Chamber, versus Price, Privilege:

Whereas this Day was appointed, to hear the State of the Case opened, which is between Henry Killigrew One of the Grooms of His Majesty's Bedchamber, and Thomas Price, Milliner, now in the Custody of the Serjeant at Arms, for arresting the said Henry Killigrew:

It being moved, on Behalf of the said Henry Killigrew, That the said Hearing may be put off for some "Time;" it is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That this House will hear the said Case opened, on Friday next, at Ten of the Clock in the Forenoon: And it is further ORDERED, That in the mean Time the said Thomas Price, and such other Persons as are in Custody by Reason of the said Arrests, be forthwith discharged of their present Restraint for that Cause, paying their Fees; and this shall be a sufficient Warrant on that Behalf.

To Sir Geo. Charnock Knight, Serjeant at Arms attending this House, his Deputy and Deputies, and every of them.

Count. of Powis, Privilege; Wells & al. to be discharged.

Whereas Anthony Wells, Constable, George Palfey, and Mathewe Rutter, Headboroughs, appearing this Day at the Bar, for entering the House of the Countess of Powis, on the First Instant, about Midnight, pleaded, "That they had an Order of Sessions for a general Search, and did not know that House to be a Peer's House, being but lately come into their Offices;" and begging Pardon for their Offence given:

It is ORDERED, That the said Anthony Wells, George Palfey, and Matthew Rutter, shall forthwith attend the said Countess of Powis, and beg her Pardon for their said Offence.

Report of the Conference on the Habeas Corpus Bill.

The Lord Privy Seal reported the Effect of the Conference with the House of Commons, on Saturday last, concerning the Amendments made by their Lordships in the Bill for the better securing the Liberty of the Subject: Which was managed by Sir Thomas Meares; who said,

"The Amendments were very many; which are a Sign your Lordships were careful to make so useful a Bill accurate."

And then his Lordship shewed wherein the Commons did agree with their Lordships, and wherein they did not.

The said several Amendments were read.

And, after some Debate thereof, the further Consideration was adjourned to such other Time as the House think fit to resume it.
