Which, being read, was agreed to.

It is Resolved, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That, in case Her Majesty (whom God long preserve) should demise without Issue, the Privy Council do cause the next Protestant Successor, as by Law established, to be proclaimed in England and Ireland, upon Pain of High Treason; and that if the said Protestant Successor should be then out of England, that there be a Commission of Lords Justices, to act in the Administration of the Government, in the Name of the Successor, until such Successor shall arrive, or send Orders to the contrary.

It is Ordered, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That To-morrow, at Twelve a Clock, this House shall be put into a Committee again, to consider farther what may be fitting to be done, for the Preservation of Her Majesty's Person and Government, and the Protestant Succession as by Law established.
