Next, the House took into Consideration the Message brought this Morning from the House of Commons, concerning the Earl of Clarendon; and, after a long Debate, these Lords following were appointed to draw up Reasons why the Lords dissent to the Vote of the House of Commons:

L. Chamberlain.

Comes Bristol.

Lords Reasons for dissenting from it.

The Lords Committees returning, the Lord Chamberlain reported the Reasons drawn up by the Lords; which were read, as followeth:

"Reasons of the Lords dissenting from the Vote of the House of Commons:

"1. For that they conceive a Proclamation in the Way proposed would be uneffectual, since it is not sub Pæna Convictionis, which cannot be till Particulars in order to Trial be declared.

"2. That what the House of Commons have proposed, and do propose at present, is intended in order to a Judicial Way of Proceeding. But, since the Earl of Clarendon's Flight, their Lordships, upon Consideration of the whole State of Affairs and of the Kingdom, have, upon Grounds of Prudence and Justice, thought fit, for the Security of the King and Kingdom, to proceed in a Legislative Way against the said Earl, and have to that End passed and sent down unto them a Bill of Banishment and Incapacity against him, with which this Vote is inconsistent."

The Question being put, "Whether this House agrees with the Committee to these Reasons?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Message to H. C. for a Conference about it.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir John Coell and Doctor Crofts:

To desire a present Conference, in the Painted Chamber, touching the Subject-matter of their last Message.

The same Lords as drew up the Reasons were appointed to manage this Conference, and to deliver the said Reasons in answer to their Message.

Palmes' Bill.

The Earl of North'ton reported, "That the Committee have considered the Bill concerning Mr. Palmes, and do think it fit to pass as it is, without any Amendment."

Hereupon the House ordered the said Bill to be read the Third Time on Monday Morning next.

The Messengers return with this Answer:

Answer from H. C.

That the House of Commons will give a present Conference, as is desired.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, and the Lords went to the Conference; which being ended, the House was resumed.

Adjourn.
