"And His Majesty well considering of what importance it is to the wellfare of this nation in general as well as to His Majesty's revenue in particular that these laws be duly and strictly observed: and finding that notwithstanding all the penalties against the transgressors thereof several ships have been permitted or taken the liberty to trade or convey goods and merchandize between the said Plantations and other parts of His Majesty's dominions viz. Scotland, Ireland and Tangier and also into foreign counties contrary to the true and express meaning of the said Acts: which His Majesty cannot but in great measure impute to the neglect of duty in his Governors of the said Plantations who have not been so careful as they ought in debarring all trade with such ships as have come without certificate from England, nor in taking bond from such as are permitted to trade there from other Plantations and returning the same to the chief officer of the Customs in London as is particularly directed: the want whereof hath been the cause that several ships have gone with their lading to Tangier, the Straights and other foreign places." Therefore on His Majesty's behalf hereby admonish and forewarn all said Governors of Plantations to be most careful herein in future, and in particular to be "punctual in debarring all ships from trade in your Plantation ... which shall not bring certificate from the chief officers of the Customs in England that bond is given to return thither according to the intent of the law: and for other English ships coming from other of our Plantations that you take sufficient bond that they shall carry all the goods so laden to some other of His Majesty's Plantations or directly into England."Ibid, pp 49–51.

Footnotes

1 Footnote.—This recital here given of the Act contains the following extraodinary words: "and for the further and more peculiar appropriating the trade of these plantations to the Kingdom of England exclusive from all other His Majesty's dominions." These words are not to be found in either of Charles's Navigation Acts, 12 Car. II. c. 18 and 15 Car. II. c. 7. In the former of these two Acts Ireland is joined with England, Wales and Berwick on Tweed in the enjoyment of the benefits of the Act, and this stipulation is again enacted in the Act of 14 Car. II. c. 11 for preventing frauds, &c., in the Customs. The words italicised reveal (what the Statute Book conceals) how far in the mind of the English Government the Navigation Act was directed against Scotland (as well as against Holland).
