Report concerning the Entries of the King's Answers to Addresses.
The Earl of Dorsett reported to this House, "That
the Lords Committees for Privileges, according to their
Lordships Order to them, for searching of Precedents,
Whether, when both Houses have waited upon the
King with an Address, and the King hath spoken
any Thing in Answer to it, the same hath been reported, and entered into the Journal Book; upon
mature debating thereof, have found out and fixed
upon Seven Precedents, and in their Judgements fully
answerable to their Lordships Commands, wherein
they find, That whensoever it did appear that the
King made any Expressions to the House, either by
Word of Mouth or in Writing, that they were either
entered or reported, or both: And thereupon the
Lords Committees humbly desired the House will be
pleased to cause the said Precedents to be read, which
they leave to their Lordships Judgements."
Upon this, the House caused these Precedents following to be read, out of the Journals:
1. The Precedent of 19° Feb. 18° Jacobi.
2. The Precedent of 7° Maii, 22° Jacobi.
3. The Precedent of 4° Augusti, A° 1° Caroli Primi.
4. The Precedent of 13° Aprilis, 2° Caroli Primi.
5. The Precedent of 1° Aprilis, 4°, Caroli Primi.
6. The Precedent of 30° Maii, A° 12° Caroli Secundi.
7. The Precedent of 2° Aprilis, 15° Caroli Secundi.
The House being satisfied with these Precedents;
ORDERED, That the Lord Keeper do report what His
Majesty said by Word of Mouth, when the Address by
both Houses of Parliament was presented to His Majesty
at Whitehall, the Fifteenth Day of this Instant October.
The Lord Keeper desired Leave of the House to retire himself, to recollect his Memory, whereby he may
be the better enabled to make the said Report.
To that Purpose, the House was adjourned during
Pleasure; and the Lord Keeper retired to his Room.
After a little while, his Lordships returned; and then
the House was resumed.
And then the Lord Keeper reported as followeth:
"That when both Houses of Parliament attended
the King on the 15th Day of this Instant October,
he delivered the humble Address of both Houses to
His Majesty; and His Majesty said as followeth:
King's Answer to Address of both Houses.
