Message to the Commons, concerning the Time of Conference.
THIS Day, Sir Jo. Tindale and Mr. Grimston were
sent to the Lower House (as was Yesterday agreed on),
to signify their Lordships Desire of Meeting with the
Committees of that House, this present Afternoon, by
Two of the Clock, at the Painted Chamber.
That they will be ready to give Meeting, at the Time
and Place appointed.
Upon this Occasion of Conference with the Lower
House, the Lord Chancellor made a Motion, which he
delivered in a grave Speech, to this Effect:
Lord Chancellor's Speech concerning the Laws in Force.
That the Laws of this Realm, especially the Statute
Laws, being temporary, and for a Time; and divers of
them become for this Time impossible, are notwithstanding in Force, and bind others; though possible to be
kept, yet inconvenient, and all penal, and likewise
many remain still good, but need Amendment and Alteration; his Lordship therefore wished, that the Lower
House at this Conference may be moved, for Consideration to be had of this Matter; and that the Judges, before they go in their Circuit, may also consider thereof,
and some meet Persons be appointed to attend them.
The Motion generally allowed, and seconded by the
Lord Treasurer, who affirmed that in the Exchequer
depend commonly Seven or Eight Hundred Informations,
commenced merely for Vexation, and not prosecuted, the
same being only beneficial to Promoters. That the Judges
may first together jointly consider of the Business; and
then they to appoint of themselves Two or Three to labour particularly therein. And shewed that much had
in this Kind been already done at the Council Board,
which will serve for Preparation in the Work.
Hereupon Agreed, That the Lord Treasurer should,
with the other Matter (formerly resolved to be the Substance of the Conference), move this also to the Committees of the Lower House.
E. of Pembroke's Privilege. Fox arrested.
Upon Signification given to this High Court of Parliament, That Richard Fox, Gentleman, a Servant in ordinary to the Earl of Pembroke, hath been of late arrested,
at the Suit of Zephany Seares, of London, Mercer, by
John Guersey, a Serjeant at Mace, and Phillip Smith,
Yeoman, contrary to the Honour and Privilege of the
said Court; it is therefore Ordered by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, That as well the said Stephany
Seares, as the Serjeant and Yeoman, before mentioned,
shall be brought into this Court, by the Serjeant at
Arms attending the House, upon Saturday next, the
17th of this instant February, by Nine of the Clock in
the Morning, to answer for their Contempt and Breach
of Privilege of the said Court.
Dominus Cancellarius continuavit præsens Parliamentem usque in diem Saturni, videlicet, 17m Februarii,
