c. 3 for annuities) towards satisfaction of the orders of loan as they
now stand registered on the Act of 1 Anne c. 6 granting several
Subsidies for the war against France : "Sir Edward Northey, her
Majesty's Attorney General having given his opinion in writing that
the said surplus is to be computed on the 24th day of June yearly
and not on the 25th of January."
Appending : said opinion of the Attorney General
"4 Wm. and Mary page 207 grants 9d. per barrel Excise for
99 years from 25 Jan. 1692-3 : all the weekly payments on
this branch [of the revenue] shall be a yearly fund page 215 :
out of which 100,000l. yearly till June 24,1700 and 70,000l.
yearly from that time shall be divided amongst contributors
for one, two or three lives by half yearly payments on 24 Dec.
and 24 June : the first payments on 24 Dec. 1693 with survivorship
till but 7 are living : if 1,000,000l. is not advanced
by 1 May 1693 the actual contributors to receive proportionably
viz. 10 per cent. for the first 7 years and 7 per cent.
afterwards pp. 217-221 ; a discount of 10 per cent. per an.
for prompt payment p. 221 ; if 1,000,000l. be not advanced
before 24 June 1703 the King and Queen may borrow the
complement : if 1,000,000l. be not advanced before 1 May
1693 any persons may purchase annuities after the rate of
14 per cent. per an. for single lives to commence from the
29th Sept. 1693 payable quarterly p. 234 with a discount
at 10 per cent. per an. ; if any purchaser on survivorship
shall before 29 Sept. 1693 desire to have an estate for life
at 14 per cent. it may be converted p. 237 ; if there be a
surplus at the end of any year of the said 99 years after all
annuities are discharged, such surplus shall be to the use of
their Majesties, their heirs and successors p. 238 ; all grants
and dispositions of the money of this Act by their Majesties
in any manner or for longer term than by this Act appointed
are void p. 239.
Query : whether the year for computing the surplus is to end
on 25th January or 24th June.
I am of opinion the year for computing the surplus is to end
on the 24th day of June and not on the 25th day of January.
The words are at the end of any year during the term of
99 years and not at the end of any year of the 99 years ;
and the surplus being to be paid as shall remain at the end
of a year after the yearly payments shows plainly the
Parliament intended to have the surplus computed at such
time when the year ended and the annual payments that
were first to be discharged became due, which is 24 June.
