Answer to Address.
The Lord Bruce reports, That the King's Majesty
having been attended, upon the Address directed to be
made from this House to his Majesty, touching the
charging and proportioning the Sixty thousand Pounds,
designed for the suffering Officers, so as the Whole might
be paid at Michaelmas, That his Majesty did express a
great Readiness to comply with the Desires of this House,
in This or any Thing that was in his Power, and his Occasions would permit: And, to that End, had sent, both
to the Lord High Treasurer, and Chancellor of the Exchequer, to see whether the Things desired might be
done: But it was found, that the Monies, upon the
Eighteen Months Assessments, as to all other Counties
saving those assigned for this Purpose, were already assigned for the Use of the Navy, and other publick Uses,
that were of Necessity to be supplied: But that about
Thirty thousand Pounds of this Money would come in
about November; and, if it were possible, some Course
should be taken for quickening the Payment of the rest.
Ordered, That this House will resume the Matter upon
the Amendments to the Bill for distributing the Sixty
thousand Pounds amongst the suffering Officers, that have
faithfully served his Majesty, and his Royal Father, To-morrow Morning, the first publick Business.
The House, according to the Order made Yesterday,
did resume the Debate of the Matter upon the Report
made from the Committee of Trade, touching the Woolen
Manufacture: Which report was, That the House should
be moved, that Liberty be given to all Merchants, to
transport, and carry out of this Kingdom, any of the
English Manufactures, made of Wool, to any Port or
Place beyond the Seas, lying within the Limits and
Bounds of the Merchant Adventurers Patent, until the
Twenty-fifth of December next.
The Question being put, That the main Question, for
