Yes - you are absolutely correct
Can anybody tell me about the nineteen propositions. is it about the civil war in 1642
On 1st June 1642 Parliament presented 19 Propositions to the King inviting him to surrender his whole effective sovereignty over Church and State....
Extracts from the Nineteen Propositions
- The Council should be appointed by Parliament
- The King's Great Officers of State should be appointed by Parliament
- The tutors of the Princes and Princesses should be appointed by Parliament
- Parliament should be given complete control over the militia and over the army required for the re conquest of Ireland
- A Church Settlement should be determined by the wishes of Parliament

The Nineteen Propositions were issued by Parliament in the hopes of reaching a settlement with the King. They called for a new constitution recognising their own supremacy; demanded that ministers and judges should be appointed by parliament not by the King and also that all Church and military matters should come under the control of Parliament.
They were designed to limit the powers of the crown and were sent to the King at York.
Charles rejected the proposals on June 2, with the words "Nolumus Leges Angliae mutari" (We are unwilling to change the laws of England). Their rejection represented the beginning of the English Civil War.

If you look at them and you know ANYTHING about Charles, you will understand why he rejected them.
The website gives this summary:
1. Parliament was to be responsible for the defence of the country; the King must accept Parliament's authority to raise armies - this was taking away the king's power over the armed forces.
2. Parliament was to supervise all foreign policy - this was taking away his right to control foreign policy
3. The King was publicly to pardon the Five Members - after what they had done!
4. Strict new laws against Roman Catholics were to be enforced - remember that Charles' wife was a Roman Catholic.
5. Parliament was to supervise the education of royal children and to arrange their marriages - !!!
6. All the King's ministers were to be made answerable to Parliament; no new peers could be appointed to the House of Lords without the approval of the Commons - or in other words, Parliament was going to take over the government of the country
