Sir Phillip Warwick, according to an Order of the Thirteenth of June last, did this Day make Report to this House of the State of the Particulars designed for his Majesty's constant Revenue, to the Effect following:
That, by an Order, made the One-and-thirtieth of July 1660, by the Commons then assembled, it was referred to a Committee, to consider of settling such a Revenue on his Majesty, as might maintain the Splendor and Grandeur of his Kingly Office, and preserve the Crown from Want, and from being undervalued by his Neighbours; and to make a speedy Report to the House.
That there were other Particulars fell short; but he would not trouble the House at present with them, because perchance they might bear their own Remedies. And he recommended very earnestly the Laws for coercive Powers to be strengthened.
Ordered, That a Committee be appointed to inspect and examine the Business of the King's Majesty's Revenue, and the Particulars proposed to make it up; and to report how much, and wherein, the same is defective; and by what means it may be best and most effectually supplied.
