M. Carmarthen and E. Pembroke, Motion for Address on Dismissal from Office negatived:

The Order of the Day being read for the Lords to be summoned:

It was Moved, "That whereas the Marquis of Carmarthen was dismissed from his Employment of the Lieutenancy of the East Riding of the County of York, on the Morning of that Day, when his Opinion to support with his Vote a Motion that was made in this House on the 8th of February last was well known: And whereas the Earl of Pembroke was likewise dismissed from the Lieutenancy of the County of Wilts soon after he gave his Vote on the same Question, which Office of Lieutenancy has been at all Times important, but most peculiarly so under the present Constitution of the Militia: And whereas no Cause has been suggested or communicated to either of the said Noble Lords for such Dismission; this House therefore hath strong Ground to believe that the same had reference to their Conduct in Parliament; (fn. 1) and it is therefore Moved, " That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, to desire that He would be graciously pleased to acquaint this House, whether He has been advised, and by whom, to dismiss the said Two Noble Lords, or either of them, from their said Employments for their Conduct in Parliament."

Which being objected to,

After long Debate,

The Question was put thereupon?

It was resolved in the Negative.

DISSENTIENT.

Protest there upon.

1st, Because we cannot entertain a Doubt but that the Two Noble Lords whose Removals from their Lieutenancies have given rise to this Motion, suffered this Mark of His Majesty's Displeasure for their Conduct in Parliament.

The Facts expressed in the Motion were sufficient in themselves to satisfy any reasonable Person, that this was the sole Cause of their Dismission; and might well have justified an immediate Censure on the Advisers of that unconstitutional Measure. But the Motion, at the same Time that it was calculated to point the Censure at those Advisers by Name, if it should have been merited, gave them an Opportunity of being exculpated if guiltless, by the solemn Testimony, which His Majesty would, in such Case, have given of their Innocence.

2dly, Because the Offer made by the Noble Lord who proposed this Address, that it should be withdrawn if any one of His Majesty's Ministers would declare upon his Honour, that these Removals were for any other Cause, than that which has been alledged, and the Silence with which Ministers thought fit to receive this Proposal, although called upon by almost every Lord, who spoke for the Motion, is an additional Reason for confirming us in our Belief that His Majesty has been advised to remove the Two Noble Lords from their Lieutenancies for their Conduct in Parliament.

3dly, Because we consider this Dismission of Lords from high and honourable Offices on Account of their Proceedings in Parliament, to be a Violation of the Bill of Rights, which declares, " That Proceedings in Parliament ought not to be impeached or questioned (much less punished) in any Court or Place out of Parliament;" and we are greatly apprehensive of the Consequences, if this daring Attempt to subvert one of the most sacred Principles of our Constitution should pass with Impunity, and grow into Precedent.

4thly, Because the mischievous Tendency of such Influence is greatly augmented by the Connection which the Offices in Question (Lieutenancies of Counties) have with the present Constitution of the Militia. That important Branch of the National Defence has been so altered as to have almost lost sight of the original Principles of an English Militia. The notorious Abuses introduced into it, and the disregard paid to the few wholesome Regulations remaining in it, would soon make the Militia a dangerous Instrument in the Hands of the Minister, were it not for the exemplary Zeal of those Gentlemen, who sacrificing every degree of domestic Comfort, and submitting to unnecessary and distant Removals from their Counties, still endeavour to maintain its Purity in the Character of its Officers; and we consider these Alterations and Abuses, as giving the more just Grounds of Apprehension and Jealousy, as they tend to assimilate the Militia in Principle and in Habits to the standing Army, in which also dangerous Innovations appear daily taking place; Innovations which though charged in the Debate, were neither denied nor defended.

"Lastly, Because when Ministers in the same Moment that they are exerting the Influence of the Crown in a most corrupt and unconstitutional Manner, think fit to assert, in Contradiction to the Evidence of all our Senses, that it is not increased and is not formidable, we can have little Hope that such Ministers will ever suffer that Influence to be diminished, although its Diminution is one of the principal Objects of the Prayers and Petitions of the People, founded on a feeling Sense of the increased, increasing, and formidable Extent of it."
