Answer to Address concerning Duke of Lauderdale.

Mr. Secretary Williamson acquaints the House, That, having received their Commands, to know his Majesty's Pleasure when he would be attended with a further Address concerning the Duke of Lauderdale; that his Majesty had been acquainted with it: But before that he received the Order of the House to know his Majesty's Pleasure, his Majesty had given Direction for an Answer to the First Address: Which he delivered in Writing:

And the same being read by Mr. Speaker, is as followeth;

Charles R

HIS Majesty has considered of the Address against the Duke of Lauderdale, and the Reasons accompanying it. As to the Acts of Parliament, mentioned to have been passed in Scotland, His Majesty observes, that the First of those Acts was in the Year 1663; which was long before the Duke of Lauderdale was His Majesty's Commissioner in that Kingdom: The latter was in Pursuance of the former. As to the Words, by the Time of Mr. Penistone Whaley's Case, His Majesty perceives, that if they had been spoken, they must have been spoken before the last Act of General Pardon: And His Majesty, being sensible how great a Satisfaction and Security the inviolable Preservation of the former Act of Indemnity and Oblivion has been to all His Subjects, cannot but apprehend the dangerous Consequences of inquiring into any thing that has been pardoned by an Act of General Pardon, lest the Example of That might give Men Cause to fear their Security under the First Act of Oblivion. Given at the Court at Whitehall, the Seventh Day of May, 1675.

A Debate arising upon his Majesty's Answer;

Resolved, &c. That the further Debate on his Majesty's Answer be adjourned till Tuesday Morning next.
