HL Deb 07 February 1833 vol 15 c297
The Lord Chancellor

begged to inform their Lordships, that the House had waited on his Majesty yesterday, according to his Royal Permission, at two o'clock, for the purpose of presenting the Address to which their Lordships had agreed, when his Majesty had been pleased to return a most gracious Answer, which he would read. The noble Lord accordingly read the following Answer: "My Lords—I thank you for your loyal and dutiful Address. I receive with peculiar satisfaction the assurance of your determination to support me in maintaining inviolate the Legislative Union between Great Britain and Ireland, and in putting down a spirit of insubordination and violence, the prompt and effectual repression of which is indispensable to the welfare of my Irish subjects, and to the general peace and security of my dominions."

The Earl of Shaftesbury

moved that his Majesty's Answer should be printed.
