Baynton's Bill.

Hodie 1 a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for the more speedy and effectual Execution of the Trust created by the Will of Henry Bayntun Esquire, deceased; and for raising a Portion for his Daughter."

Message from H. C. to return Macclesfield's and Powell's Bills.

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

To return the Bill, (intituled, "An Act to enable Ralph Macclesfeild to sell Lands, for Payment of Debts, and making Provision for his Wife and Children,") with One Amendment; to which they desire their Lordships Concurrence.

A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Sir Thomas Dike and others:

To return the Bill, intituled, "An Act for the settling of the Manor of Kingsnoth, for the enabling Barnham Powell Esquire to make Provision for his Younger Children;" to which they have agreed, without any Amendment.

Lords Amendments to the Land Tax Bill.

The Earl of Rochester reported from the Committee, what was drawn by them, to be offered at a Conference with the House of Commons, upon their Lordships receding from their Provisos added to the Bill, intituled, "An Act for granting to Their Majesties an Aid of Four Shillings in the Pound, for One Year, for carrying on a vigorous War against France."

Then the Reasons were read, and altered; which were agreed to, as followeth; (videlicet,)

Reasons, to be offered at a Conference, for the Lords receding from them, asserting their Right to make Amendments in Money Bills.

"The Lords can by no Means agree to what was offered by the House of Commons at the last Conference; because, besides many Precedents in former Times in taxing themselves for their Personal Estates, they have had a very late one in the Act, intituled, "An Act for raising Money, by a Poll and otherwise, towards the reducing of Ireland, and prosecuting the War against France;" wherein they did nominate Commissioners of their own, for taxing their Personal Estates.

"And because they conceive that the making of Amendments and Abatements of Rates in Bills of Supply sent up from the House of Commons is a fundamental, inherent, and undoubted Right of the House of Peers, from which their Lordships can never depart; they have therefore thought themselves obliged to assert it upon this Occasion.

"But, considering that a Difference between the Two Houses upon this Bill may create such Delays in the passing of it as would be of the most fatal Consequence in the present Conjuncture, the Lords have not thought convenient at this Time to insist upon their Provisos."

Message to H. C. for a Conference about this Business.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir John Hoskyns and Sir Adam Ottley:

To desire a present Conference, in the Painted Chamber, upon the Subject-matter of the last Conference.

Answer.

The Messengers sent to the House of Commons return this Answer:

That the Commons will give a Conference, as desired.

Conference.

The House being informed, "That the Commons were come to the Conference;" the last Managers Names were read; and the House was adjourned during Pleasure, and the Lords went to the Conference:

Which being ended, the House was resumed.

"K. William and Q. Mary Conquerors," Bohun and Baldwin summoned for publishing it.

The House being informed, "That there is a Book published, intituled, King William and Queen Mary Conquerors, &c. which is licensed by Edmund Bohun, and printed for Richard Baldwin, near The Oxford Armes, in Warwick Lane, &c. 1693:"
