Commons Reasons for not agreeing to Amendments.
"1. The House of Commons, intending by this
Act to preserve the English Government and
Protestant Religion in Ireland, have especially
provided against the practicing of Barristers,
Clerks in Chancery, Attornies, and Practisers
of Law, of the Romish Religion there, who
have been at all Times great Enemies to the
Crown of England and the Protestant Religion therein, and constant Fomenters, Raisers,
and Actors in Rebellions against them, and
more especially in the late Rebellion against
Their present Majesties, and, by the Influence
they will thereby have upon the Popish Inhabitants, who are much more numerous than
the Protestants in Ireland, (if they are admitted to use their Professions) will be always
apt and ready to disturb the Peace of the
Kingdom, and the Establishment of the Protestant Religion there.
"2. Barristers at Law of the Romish Religion have
been frequently admitted to practise in Ireland,
by virtue of the King's Letters, without
qualifying themselves as others of that Profession in that Kingdom.
"3. That the Act, intituled, "An Act declaring
the Rights and Liberties of the Subject, and
settling the Succession of the Crown," not
making any express Mention of the Kingdom
of Ireland, the Commons thought fit to secure
the Benefit of this Act to it, against all Pretences to the contrary."
ORDERED, That the Consideration of the Commons
disagreeing to the said Amendments shall be taken up
on Thursday next, at Ten of the Clock in the Forenoon;
