PRAYERS.

State of the War in Spain:

The House was (according to Order) adjourned during Pleasure, and put into a Committee, to take into further Consideration the present State of the War in Spain.

And, after some Time spent therein, the House was resumed.

Resolutions concerning Deficiencies in the Number of Men there, at the Time of the Battle of Almanza.

And the Earl of Abingdon reported, "That the Committee had come to the several following Resolutions; (videlicet,)

" 1. That of the Twenty-nine Thousand Three Hundred Ninety-five Men, given by Parliament for the Service of the War in Spain, there were present in Spain, at the Time of the Battle of Almanza, only Thirteen Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty-nine.

"2. That the Deficiency of the Seventeen Hundred and Ten Men, Twice reckoned in the Regiments of Hotham and Hill, is not to be charged on the Earl of Gallway.

" 3. That the Deficiency of Eight Hundred Seventyfix Men of my Lord Barrymore's Regiment, reduced by the Earl of Peterborow, and was, at the Time of the Battle of Almanza, raising in England, is not to be charged on the Earl of Gallway.

" 4. That the Deficiency of Eighteen Hundred Thirty-three Men, allowed for Servants of the Officers belonging to the several Regiments actually in Spain, and not reduced at the Time of the Battle of Almanza, is not to be charged on the Earl of Gallway.

" 5. That the Deficiency of One Hundred Fiftyone of the Widows Men for all the Regiments in Spain, at the Time of the Battle of Almanza, as allowed by Act of Parliament, is not to be charged on the Earl of Gallway.

" 6. That the Deficiency of Three Thousand Seven Hundred Forty-one Men, of the Regiments of Farrington, Hamilton, Mohun, Brudenell, Allen, and Toby Caulfield, that were reduced some Time before the Battle of Almanza, is not to be charged on the Earl of Gallway.

" 7. That the Deficiency of Six Hundred Twenty-two Non-commission Officers and Private Men, of Blosset's Regiment, that were reduced by my Lord Rivers, and incorporated into Sybourg's, is not to be charged on the Earl of Gallway.

Resolution, that the Two Regiments on the Spanish Establishment, provided for by Parliament, were not supplied as they should have been:

"8. That the Two Regiments, upon the Spanish Establishment, Twice demanded, and provided for by Parliament, were not supplied as they ought to have been.

" 9. That, by not supplying the Deficiencies of the Men given by Parliament for the War in Spain, the Ministers have greatly neglected that Service, which was of the greatest Importance."

The Seven First Resolutions, being severally read by the Clerk, were agreed unto by the House.

Then the Eighth Resolution being read; (videlicet,)

"That the Two Regiments upon the Spanish Establishment, Twice demanded, and provided for by Parliament, were not supplied as they ought to have been:"

The Question was put, "That the House do agree with the Committee in this Resolution?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Protest against it.

"Dissentient.

" Because the Estimates, in which the Two Regiments of Hill and Hotham were Twice demanded, were agreed to by Parliament, for the Service of Portugal as well as of Spain; and that Mistake could not, in our Opinion, have been more effectually or sooner supplied than from Ireland, and in the Manner they were: For it appears to us, the said Estimates were not agreed to till the 11th of January 170 6/7.

" That the necessary Orders, for transporting Four other Regiments from Ireland to Portugal, were issued on the 8th of February next following; and that the Money, provided for the said Two Regiments, Twice reckoned, was applied to the Payment of the said Four Regiments, from the Time of their Embarkation.

Resolution, that the Ministers neglected the Service, in not supplying the Deficiencies of the Men given by Parliament.

Then the last Resolution being read; (videlicet,)

"That, by not supplying the Deficiencies of the Men given by Parliament for the War in Spain, the Ministers have greatly neglected that Service, which was of the greatest Importance."

The Question was put, "That the House do agree with the Committee in this Resolution?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Protest against it.

"Dissentient.

"Because, the Resolution on the former Particular is not, as we conceive, a sufficient Ground for this general Vote; and the Committee of the whole House having declined to give any Opinion on the other Particulars, we think it unreasonable to proceed to a Censure on the Ministers, for not supplying the Deficiency, without first resolving on the several Particulars, how far that Deficiency might justly be imputed to them.

"And we are of Opinion, that all the Money, given by Parliament for the Service of Spain and Portugal, has been timely and punctually issued for that Service. (fn. *)
