Heads for it.
The Lord Privy Seal reported what the Committee
had prepared, to be delivered at this Conference; which
was read, as followeth:
"The Lords have desired this Conference with the
House of Commons, to acquaint them, That, being
informed, that His Majesty hath sent Orders for
withdrawing the Forces out of Flanders, in order to
their Disbanding; many Difficulties and Dangers do
occur to their Lordships, if such Rules and Orders be
not established, by Consideration and Advice of both
Houses, that the Disbanding may be made with Safety;
which, their Lordships conceive, cannot be by bringing
such a Power together to the Forces already here;
and do therefore propose, that the Forces here may
not be increased by the Accession of more from
Abroad; but that a proportionable Number of those
here may be disbanded before the Regiments from
Flanders shall arrive; and that, after Consideration
hereof by the Commons, by joint Advice of both
Houses, a Reglement may be made accordingly."
Answer from H. C.
The Messengers sent to the House of Commons, return with this Answer:
That they will give a present Conference, as is

to the Address of both Houses, for securing Popish Recusants: And His Majesty will issue out a Proclamation,
as is desired.
The House was adjourned during Pleasure, and the
Lords went to the Conference; which being ended,
