It is Ordered, That the said Respondents do peremptorily put in their Answer or respective Answers to the said Appeal in a Week.

State of the Nation considered.

The Order of the Day being read, for taking into further Consideration the State of the Nation:

Motion for Care to be taken, that the K of Spain renounces all Pretensions to Gibra'tal and Minoica.

It was moved, "To resolved, That it is the Opinion of this House, that, for the Honour of His Majesty, and the Preservation and Security of the Trade and Commerce of this Kingdom, effectual Care should be taken, in the present Treaty, that the King of Spain do renounce all Claim and Pretension to Gibraltar and the Island of Minorca, in plain and strong Terms."

After Debate;

The Question was put thereupon.

And it was Resolved in the Negative.

Protest against rejecting it.

"Dissentient.

Because we think our Right to a Place of such Importance to our Commerce should be secured by more than general Stipulations, which may be liable to different Constructions; and will probably be interpreted by the Spaniards in their own Favour, however we may interpret them in ours.

Because the King of Spain, having claimed it by His Ministers several Times, not only from the late King's positive Promise, as He asserts it to be, but from our Forseiture of it too, by our Infractions of those Conditions on which He gave it up to us, and having actually besieged it since He yielded it to us by Treaty; it seems reasonable to us, that we should insist upon His making His Renunciation of it in Words as plain and strong as He has made His Claim to it; especially since, as far as we have heard, our Plenipotentiaries have not been able to prevail upon Him to shew any Inclination to relinquish His Pretensions to it, during the long Course of these perplexed Negotiations, in which we have been unskilfully, as we fear, and we are sure we have been unfortunately, involved.

We think it is incumbent upon us to take particular Care that our Right to it should not in the least be precarious; because, we apprehend, we have great Reason to sear that the King of Spain's Allies are very desirous to have it again in His Hands, and no Reason at all to believe that our own Allies are solicitous to have it continue in ours. If there should be the least Room left, upon a Peace, for the King of Spain's Pretensions to it, from any loose or doubtful Expressions; we are apprehensive, it may lay a Foundation for Uneasiness and Animosity; and might interrupt a perfect Harmony between us and a Nation whose Friendship must always be of the greatest Advantage to us. We think our Zeal to preserve our Title to it, in that most effectual Manner we proposed, would have terrified any wicked Ministers even from the Thoughts of giving it up, if ever we should be in such wretched Circumstances as to have any who might think a War more dangerous to themselves than the Nation; and who might, for that Reason, be tempted to purchase an inglorious Peace at the high Price of so valuable a Part of the Brittish Dominions.
