Address to the King, to discourage the Woollen Manufacture of Ireland, and desiring He will recommend to them the Increase of their Linen Manufacture.

"We, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, do humbly represent unto Your Majesty, that the growing Manufacture of Cloth in Ireland, both by the Cheapness of all Sorts of Necessaries for Life, and Goodness of Materials for making of all Manner of Cloth, doth invite Your Subjects of England, with their Families and Servants, to leave their Habitations, to settle there, to the Increase of the Woollen Manufacture in Ireland; which makes Your Loyal Subjects in this Kingdom very apprehensive that the further Growth of it may greatly prejudice the said Manufacture here; by which the Trade of this Nation and the Value of Lands will very much decrease, and the Numbers of Your People be much lessened here: Wherefore we do most humbly beseech Your most Sacred Majesty, that Your Majesty would be pleased, in the most public and effectual Way that may be, to declare to all Your Subjects of Ireland, that the Growth and Increase of the Woollen Manufacture there hath long, and will ever be looked upon with great Jealousy by all Your Subjects of this Kingdom, and, if not timely remedied, may occasion very strict Laws, totally to prohibit and suppress the same; and, on the other hand, if they turn their Industry and Skill to the settling and improving the Linen Manufacture, for which generally the Lands of that Kingdom are very proper, they shall receive all Countenance, Favour, and Protection, from Your Royal Influence, for the Encouragement and promoting of the said Linen Manufacture, to all the Advantage and Profit that Kingdom can be capable of.

To which the House agreed.

It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Lords with White Staves do humbly attend His Majesty, with the Address of this House, concerning the Woollen Manufacture in Ireland.
