Coke's Bill.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act to subject the Estate of Robert Coke, of Trusley, in the County of Derby, Esquire, and William Coke his Son and Heir Apparent, to the Payment of the said Robert Coke's Debts; and to make Provision for the Wife and Younger Children of the said William Coke."

Scotch Conspiracy.

The House, pursuant to the Order of the Ninth Instant, took into Consideration the Narratives and Papers formerly read in this House, in relation to the Scotch Conspiracy.

After reading several of them, and Debate thereupon; the following Order was made:

Keith attached.

It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod attending this House, his Deputy or Deputies, do immediately attach the Body of William Keith, and keep him in safe Custody, in order to his being examined by this House; and that, in the mean Time, no Person or Persons be allowed to speak with him; nor he to have Pen, Ink, or Paper, until further Order of this House; and this shall be a sufficient Warrant on that Behalf.

"To the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod, attending this House, his Deputy and Deputies, and every of them."

Then, after reading other Papers, and further Debate thereupon, the House agreed, and ordered, as follows:

Address for other Papers concerning the Scotch Conspiracy.

"That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, from this House; desiring Her Majesty to lay before this House other Papers, relating to the Conspiracy in Scotland, and also upon the Subjectmatter of the Debate of this House."

Then it was ordered as follows:

"It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Lords this Day present in the House shall be a Committee, to draw an humble Address, to be presented to Her Majesty, from this House; desiring Her Majesty to lay before this House several other Papers, relating to the Conspiracy in Scotland, and also upon the Subject-matter of the Debate of this House relating thereunto: Their Lordships, or any Five of them, to meet presently, in the Prince's Lodgings near the House of Peers; and to adjourn as they please."

Door-keepers not to stay within the House when sitting.

The House taking Notice, "That of late the Doorkeepers have frequently presumed to come within the Doors, when the House is sitting, contrary to the Rules and Orders of the House:"

It is this Day ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That, for the future, no Door-keeper, or Door-keepers, attending this House, do presume to come or stay within the Doors of this House, when sitting (except particularly ordered so to do); and this to be added to the Roll of Standing Orders.
