Quick Reference

1647.

A set of counter‐proposals from the radical members of the army, who were concerned at the concessions which the army council had offered the king in the Heads of the Proposals. The Agreement, formulated in October 1647, became the basis for the discussions at the army debates in Putney. It urged a substantial widening of the parliamentary franchise. Cromwell and Ireton retorted that the security of property would be undermined. When the Agreement was submitted to Parliament, it was rejected.
