SPEECH of the Lords Commissioners, on the Closing of the
British Parliament, 2d July, 1827.
the satisfaction which His Majesty feels in being enabled, by the state of the Publick Business, to release you from further attendance in Parliament.
His Majesty directs us to inform you, that He continues to receive from all Foreign Powers assurances of their earnest desire to cultivate Relations of Friendship with His Majesty; and that His Majesty's best efforts, as well as His Majesty's Communications with His Allies, are unceasingly directed to the termination of existing Hostilities, and to the maintenance of general Peace.
Gentlemen of the House of Commons, His Majesty commands us to thank you for the Supplies which you have granted for the Service of the present Year, and to assure you that His Majesty has given directions for a careful revision of the Financial state of the Country, with a view to every diminution of Expenditure which may be found consistent with the necessary demands of the Publick Service, and with the permanent interests, good faith, and honour of the Nation.
My Lords, and Gentlemen, His Majesty is confident that you participate with His Majesty in the pleasure which His Majesty derives from the indications of a gradual revival of employment in the Manufacturing Districts.
His Majesty trusts that although your deliberations on the Corn Laws have not led, during the present Session, to a permanent settlement of that important Question, the consideration of it will be resumed by you early in the ensuing Session, and that such an arrangement of it may finally be adopted as shall satisfy the reasonable wishes, and reconcile the substantial Interests, of all Classes of His Majesty's Subjects,

Art. I. That all the Treaties of Peace made between the King of France and His Majesty the Ottoman Sultan, and their Predecessors,
as also any Treaty which may take place between the Ambassador of France at Constantinople and the Sublime Porte, for the purpose of peace and amicable union between the two said Courts, shall be hereby strictly observed and acknowledged, by the Regency of Tunis and the Court of France, without deviation on either side, either privately or publickly.
II. That all former Treaties are hereby renewed and confirmed, with such modifications as are hereinafter expressed.
III. That all the French Subjects, resident in the Kingdom of Tunis, shall continue upon the same footing as they were before, to enjoy those privileges and advantages which have been hitherto granted them, and shall be treated as Subjects of the most favoured Nation, according to the terms of the before-mentioned Treaties; and that whatever other privileges and advantages may be hereafter granted to any other Nation, shall be equally granted to the French, notwithstanding this not being specified in the aforesaid Treaties.
IV. That all goods imported either from France or from any other Country, under any Flag, whether of a Friend or Enemy, and consigned to French Merchants, shall only pay 3 per cent. Customs, according to customary usage, until the establishment of a new Tariff.
V. That if any French Subject should bring to the Corn Market either rice or any other sort of grain, or dry seeds, he shall only pay I piastre of Tunis currency duty upon every Kaffeer* to the Governor of the Market, without paying any duty at the Custom House.
VI. That, upon the demand of the French Consul, it is agreed that there shall be established a Tariff, for valuation of goods paying customs, and as soon as this Tariff shall be reciprocally agreed upon by the Parties, it shall be considered as forming an Article of this Treaty.
VII. That if any of the goods imported into Tunis by the French Merchants should remain unsold, the said Merchants shall be alloned to export them within the period of one Year from the time of their importation, without paying any duty whatever; and if any duty had been paid at the Custom House on the importation of the said goods, it shall be returned to the Merchants at the time the goods are exported.
VIII. That the French Merchants shall likewise be allowed to unload their merchandize from one Ship and load it upon another without paying any duty whatever; provided such goods shall not be landed.
