Protection for imported Com and Bullion.

The Lords and Commons now in Parliament assembled, having received information by a Petition of Merchant-strangers, and others, concerned in the importation of Plate and Bullion into this Kingdome, That their correspondents inhabiting in the parts beyond the Seas, have conceived many feares and jealousies which might discourage them in the usuall importing of Bullion into this Kingdome; For the better security and encouragement of all Traders and bringers in of Bullion or Coine into this Kingdome, doe Declare and Ordaine, That Bullion and Coine, that shall be brought into this Kingdome, by any English shipping, shall have free and safe passage and protection, as in any former times; both by Sea and Land, into the Ports of Dover and London: and accordingly into, and out of His Majesties mint in the Tower of London, without any interruption.
