E. of Burlington introduced.
This Day the Earl of Burlington was introduced, in
his Robes, between the Earl of Essex and the Earl of
Craven, being likewise in their Robes; the Lord Great
Chamberlain of England and Garter Principal King of
Arms going before.
His Lordship having presented his Patent of Creation
upon his Knees to the Lord Chancellor, it was delivered
to the Clerk of the Parliament, to be read. The Patent
bears Date the 20th Day of March, Anno 17° Regni
Serenissimi Domini nostri Caroli Secundi, Dei Gratiâ,
Angl. Scotiæ, Franc. et Hib. Regis.
Which being done, his Lordship was brought and
placed at the lower End of the Earls Bench.
Heads for a Conference on the Vote against the Importation of French Commodities.
The Earl of Anglesey reported, "That the Committee appointed to consider and draw up the Matter for
a Conference with the House of Commons, concerning
the Vote for prohibiting the Importation of French
Manufactures and Commodities, &c. have prepared a
Paper to that Purpose, which they offer to the Consideration of the House."
Which was read; and after some Debate, and making
a small Alteration, it was agreed to, as follows:
"The Lords have appointed this Conference, to preserve that Union and good Correspondence so necessary to be between the Two Houses; and, in order
thereunto, commanded us to acquaint you, That,
having had several Days Debate and Consideration of
the Vote sent up to them from the House of Commons,
concerning their joining with that House in an humble Desire to His Majesty, for the issuing a Proclamation, prohibiting strictly the Importation of all Sorts
of Manufactures and Commodities whatsoever, of the
Growth, Production, or Manufacture, of France, &c.
that though they are well inclined to the Substance of
the said Vote, and look upon it as very beneficial to
the Kingdom, yet several Difficulties occurring to
their Lordships have hindered their coming to any
final Resolution thereupon, further than to acquaint
that House with the same, that, if by Advice of both
Houses they may be removed or provided against, we
may be so united in a Resolution concerning that Affair, as may be for the Advantage of these Kingdoms,
and without Prejudice to any:
"1. Their Lordships foresee, by this Proclamation,
a great Abatement in His Majesty's Customs,
without any Provision made to supply it otherwise."
"2. Their Lordships take Notice of great Damage
that will befall his Royal Highness thereby, in
his Revenue arising by Wine Licenses, granted
this very Parliament."
"3. Their Lordships much doubt, that French
Wines may still come in, under colour of
Rhenish Wines, unless some careful Provision
be made to prevent such Abuse."
"4. Their Lordships much doubt, whether the
Proclamation will produce the desired Effect,
if the rest of His Majesty's Dominions remain
free to import, receive, and vent, those Commodities which are proposed to be prohibited
ORDERED, That this House will have a Conference
with the House of Commons To-morrow Morning, upon
the Matter of the aforesaid Paper.
Message from H. C. with a Bill.
A Message was brought from the House of Commons,
by Mr. Seymour and others; who brought up a Bill,
passed by the Commons, intituled, "An Act against
importing Cattle from Ireland and other Parts beyond
the Seas, and Fish taken by Foreigners;" to which
their Lordships Concurrence is desired.
ORDERED, That this House will read this Bill Tomorrow Morning.
