And will you preserve unto the bishops and clergy of this realm, and to the churches committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges, as by law, do or shall appertain unto them, or any of them ?" King or Queen.
Էջ 324 - In 1678 they again resolved, in fuller language, "that all aids and supplies, and aids to His Majesty in parliament, are the sole gift of the commons; and all bills for the granting of any such aids or supplies ought to begin with the commons; and that it is the undoubted and sole right of the commons to direct, limit and appoint in such bills the ends, purposes, considerations, conditions, limitations and qualifications of such grants, which ought not to be changed...
