"The Question being put, Whether the Bill, intituled, "An Act to prevent the Dangers which may
arise from Persons disaffected to the Government,"
should be committed; it being carried in the Affirmative; and we, after several Days Debate, being
in no Measure satisfied, but still apprehending that
this Bill doth not only subvert the Privilege and
Birthright of the Peers, by imposing an Oath upon
them with the Penalty of losing their Place in Parliament; but also, as we humbly conceive, does strike at
the very Root of Government, it being necessary to
all Government to have Freedom of Votes and Debates in those who have Power to alter and make
Laws; and besides, the express Words of this Bill
obliging every Man to abjure all Endeavours to alter
the Government in the Church, without regard to any
Thing that Rules of Prudence in Government, or
Christian Compassion to Protestant Dissenters, or the
Necessity of Affairs, at any Time, shall or may require: Upon these Considerations, we humbly conceiving it to be of dangerous Consequence to have
any Bill of this Nature so much as committed, do
enter our Dissent from that Vote, and Protestation
