Lord Chancellor acquaints the House that there is a Commission to dissolve the Parliament.
THE Lord Chancellor, after a general and long
Silence in the House, in a very grave and worthy
Speech, gave unto the Lords great Thanks that they
had so nobly born with him in many Motions, which
(as he spake) he had unseasonably made unto them;
and craved Leave now to move unto them a Matter,
which, as he said, himself scarce understood. He then
did put their Lordships in mind, That the King, for
weighty and important Occasions, did call a Parliament,
to begin the 5th Day of April last; and further declared unto them, That His Majesty's Pleasure now is,
to dissolve the same; and that, for that Purpose, by
His Highness's Commandment, a Commission is now
forth, under the Great Seal, which is this Day to be
executed. The Order and Form whereof his Lordship
likewise remembered to be thus: videlicet, That the
Lords, having first put on their Robes, do send for
the Speaker and Commons, to hear the King's Pleasure. He then moved them to send a Message to the
Lower House, the Effect whereof he also proposed;
which, all the Lords allowing, was sent accordingly.
Message to the H.C. to that Effect.
Message sent to the Lower House, by Mr. Dr. Bird
and Mr. Dr. James:
That the Lords having understood of a Commission
under the Great Seal of England, for dissolving, as
this Day, of the Parliament, which was begun on the
5th of April last, forasmuch as they thought to have
heard this Morning something from that House, have
hitherto stayed the publishing of the said Commission,
and do now expect to know whether their Lordships shall
hear any Thing from them or not; otherwise the Lords
Commissioners must this Day dissolve the Parliament.
That they will take into Consideration the Message
which the Lords have sent, and presently send Answer
by Messengers of their own.
Second Answer from the Lower House, by Sir
George More and others:
That they received a Message from the Lords, signifying, That there is a Commission forth, unto certain
select Lords, to dissolve the Parliament this Day; and
that the Lords have hitherto made Stay of publishing
the same, expecting to hear something from that House,
etc. ut supra; in Answer whereunto, they do let their
Lordships understand, That this Morning they received
a Letter, directed to their Speaker, from the King's
Highness, whereby was signified, That whereas His
Majesty, by former Letters, had declared his Determination to dissolve the Parliament on Thursday next,
except in the mean Time that House should proceed
in His important Business, for which the same was especially called; yet now His Majesty's Pleasure to be,
to dissolve the Parliament To-morrow, being the 7th
of this Month, unless they shall before that Time perform what by His said former Letters was required;
Lastly, that they have entered into Consideration of
that great Matter.
Answer returned to the Lower House, by their Messengers:
That the Lords have heard their Answer, and will
take it into Consideration.
Message to the H.C. that this House will adjourn to the Afternoon.
The Lords Commissioners named in the Commission
abovesaid, by Order of the Lords, withdrew themselves, to advise what, in this Case, were fit by them
to be done; and being returned into the House, by
the general Consent of them and all the Lords then
present, Answer was sent unto the Lower House, by
Mr. Dr. Bird and Mr. Dr. James: That the Lords,
having considered of the Answer which that House sent
unto their Lordships, have resolved to adjourn this
Court until Two of the Clock To-morrow in the Afternoon, which will be the 7th Day of this Month.
Dominus Cancellarius continuavit præsens Parliamentum usque in diem crastinum, videlicet, 7m Junii,
hora 2a post meridiem.
