PRAYERS.

Answer from H. C. Unparliamentary, in agreeing to one Part of a Message, and denying the other.

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

That the House of Commons agree to a Conference, as is desired, concerning the Bill for an additional Imposition upon Foreign Commodities, &c.

But as concerning that Part of the said Message touching an Address to His Majesty, they will send an Answer by Messengers of their own.

The Lords conceived this Answer from the House of Commons to be Unparliamentary, and contrary to all ancient Precedents and Proceedings of Parliament, in agreeing to one Part of a Message, and denying another Part of it.

Message from thence, with a Bill.

A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Sir Robert Atkins and others:

Who brought up a Bill, intituled, "An Act for laying Impositions on Proceedings at Law."

Message to them, for a Conference on the last Answer from thence.

The Lords being made acquainted, "That the House of Commons was in the Painted Chamber, ready to give their Lordships a Conference:"

The House took into Debate, what Course to take herein.

And the Lords took the same into Consideration. But, before their Lordships could come to any Result, the House was informed, that the Commons were returned, after long Attendance, to their House.

Whereupon this House sent this Message to the House of Commons, by Sir John Coell and Sir William Beversham:

That the Lords have received from the House of Commons an Answer to the Message sent to them Yesterday in which they desired a Conference; which Answer their Lordships conceive so Unparliamentary, that they cannot proceed in that Conference; and desire a Conference upon that Answer, in the Painted Chamber, at Five of the Clock this Afternoon, at which Time this House will be sitting, and desire that they would then be sitting also.

ORDERED, That the same Lords as were appointed Yesterday to manage the Conference, are now deputed to manage the Conference this Afternoon; and are to meet this Afternoon, at Four of the Clock, to consider and prepare what is fit to be offered at the Conference, and to report the same to the House.

Adjourn.
