Report of the Conference on the Bill for abrogating the Oaths.

The Lord Bishop of Sarum made a short Report of the long Free Conference had with the House of Commons Yesterday, concerning the Amendments in the Bill for abrogating the Oaths of Allegiance and Supremacy.

He said, "The Commons do insist, that, according to the Statute 7° Jacobi, all Persons should be enjoined to take the Oaths; and they hold, that there should be no Difference between the Clergy and the Laity in taking these Oaths."

Bill for abrogating the Oaths.

After Consideration of the whole Matter, and after a long Debate;

This Question was proposed, "Whether it shall be left to the King, to order the Oaths to be put to such of the Clergy as He shall think fit to exempt from being obliged to take them, in the Manner prescribed by the Act; the said Clergy not exceeding the Number of Twelve, and to be named by His Majesty before the 23th Day of May next?"

The Question being put, "Whether this Question shall be now put?"

It was Resolved in the Negative.

Another Question was proposed: "Provided always, That such of the Clergy as, by their not taking the Oaths, fall under the Pains of Deprivation, may be provided by His Majesty with such Maintenance, out of the Benefice, Dignity, or Ecclesiastical Promotion, as He shall think fit to appoint, for their Subsistance, not exceeding the Third Part of the Profits and Rents of the said Benefice, Dignity, or Ecclesiastical Promotion; the said Maintenance to be payable during the King's Pleasure, and no longer?"

The Question being put, "Whether this Question shall be now put?"

It was Resolved in the Negative.

Then this Question was proposed, "Whether it shall be left to the King, to allow to such of the Clergy as shall refuse the Oaths prescribed by this Act, as He shall think fit, not exceeding the Number of Twelve, an Allowance out of their Ecclesiastical Benefices or Promotions, for their Subsistance, not exceeding a Third Part; and to continue during His Majesty's Pleasure, and no longer?"

The Question being put, "Whether this Question shall be now put?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Then the main Question was put.

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Then this Question was put, "Whether to agree with the House of Commons, with this Clause added?"
