It was Resolved in the Affirmative.
Message from H. C. with the Bill for removing Papists from London.
Another Message was brought from the House of
Commons, by Sir John Holt Knight and others:
Who returned a Bill formerly sent down to the Commons, intituled, "An Act for the amoving Papists and
reputed Papists from the Cities of London and Westminster, and Ten Miles Distance from the same;" in
which the Commons have made some Amendments and
Additions, to which their Lordships Concurrence is
The Amendments were read Twice alone, and then
in Paragraphs; and then read the Provisos.
And, after Consideration thereof, the House agreed to
the Amendments, but did not agree to the Provisos;
and ordered these Lords following to withdraw presently, and prepare Reasons to be given to the House
of Commons, at a Conference, for their not agreeing:
Marq. of Winton.
E. of Pembrooke.
E. of Nottingham.
E. of Rochester.
Reasons for disagreeing with the Commons Provisos.
The Earl of Pembrook reported from the Committee,
the Reasons to be offered to the House of Commons at
a Conference, for not agreeing in the Two Provisos.
Which, being read and considered, were Agreed to.
The Reasons were these:
"The Alteration in the Proviso marked (A.) in the
Sixth Line; instead of ["Two"], read ["Six"]:
"Because, within the Time of Two Months before
the 13th of February, many may be supposed to have
come up to this Town upon some Design, who were
not Inhabitants here formerly.
"The Lords do not agree to the Proviso concerning
the Queen Dowager:
"Because Her Majesty the Queen Dowager hath for
so many Years made such moderate Use of the said
Articles, that there hath not been any just Occasion
of Complaint in Her Enjoyment of them; and it may
seem at this Time to be a Kind of Severity to Her
Majesty, to have those Articles still restrained, by virtue of that Act which was made for the Preservation
of the Person of the King Her Husband, which Reason
now ceases; and 'tis evident that in the Time of the
late King James, when Her Majesty might have been
encouraged to entertain more Persons of Her own
Religion, most of Her Servants and those in the
most considerable Places continued, and also others
received into Her Family though Protestants; and it
is conceived it may be of ill Consequence, if Her
Majesty, by not living easily here, should be obliged
to retire into Foreign Parts."
The House Agreed to these Reasons.

shall mutiny, or desert Their Majesties Service.
