"We, the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England, in pursuance of an Act, passed in the session of Parliament held in the third and fourth years of your Majesty's reign, intituled "An Act to carry into effect, with cer"tain modifications, the fourth report of the "Commissioners of Ecclesiastical Duties and "Revenues," have prepared, and now humbly lay before your Majesty in Council, the following scheme, for fixing the number and emoluments of the Minor Canons in the collegiate church of Saint Peter, Westminster.

"Whereas it is by the said recited Act enacted, that so soon as conveniently may be, and by the authority therein provided, regulations shall be made for fixing the number and emoluments of the minor canons in each cathedral and collegiate church, provided that there shall not in any case be more than six nor less than two, and that the stipend of each such minor canon, thereafter to be appointed, shall not be less than one hundred and fifty pounds per annum; and that arrangements may, from time to time, be made by the like authority, for securing to any minor canon, not otherwise competently provided for, such annual sum as shall make up to him an income, as minor canon, not exceeding in any case the said sum of one hundred and fifty pounds t .• . . • * And whereas application has been made to us by the Dean and Chapter of the collegiate church of Saint Peter, Westminster to fix the number and emoluments of the Minor Canons in the said church as hereinafter mentioned:

"And whereas it has been represented to us by the said Dean and Chapter, that the number of Minor Canons in the said church has hitherto been six, and that the stipend of each Minor Canon, payable out of the revenues of the said church, amounts, as last fixed, to the annual sum of one hundred and seventeen pounds, and no more; and that it is expedient that the same number of six Minor Canons should be continued in the said church; and it has been further represented to us by the said Dean and Chapter, that they have assigned to the two junior Minor Canons, who have been appointed since the passing of the said recited Act, fixed annual stipends, as such Minor Canons, of one hundred and fifty pounds each, and that the three senior Minor Canons, although receiving, as Minor Canons, the smaller stipends aforesaid, are otherwise competently provided for; but that the Reverend Randle Jackson Waters, the fourth Minor Canon, who also receives the smaller annual stipend aforesaid, is not otherwise competently provided for:

"And whereas by and under an Order of your Majesty in Council, bearing date the third day of April last, the Deans and future Canons of the said church are charged with the payment to us of a certain portion of their respective incomes, so as to reduce the same to the average annual amounts respectively named in the same Act; and, in making such reduction, their existing incomes respectively have been estimated without accounting for any increase in the stipends of the Minor Canons of the said church:

"And we further recommend and propose, that, so long as the said Randle Jackson Waters shall continue to be a Minor Canon in the same church, and shall not hold any other office therein, or any benefice, there shall be paid to him, by the Treasurer or other proper officer of the said church, in addition to Ids aforesaid stipend of one hundred and seventeen pounds, the annual sum of thirty-three pounds by equal half-yearly payments, and that two of such payments shall be considered
