lay before your Majesty in Council, the following scheme, for fixing the number and emoluments of the Minor Canons in the collegiate church of Saint Peter, Westminster.
“ Whereas it is by the said recited Act enacted, that so soon as conveniently may be, and by the authority therein provided, regulations shall be made for fixing the number and emoluments of the minor canons in each cathedral and collegiate church, provided that there shall not in any case be more than six nor less than two, and that the stipend of each such minor canon, thereafter to be appointed, shall not be less than one hundred and fifty pounds per annum ; and that arrangements may, from time to time, be made by the like authority, for securing to any minor canon, not otherwise competently provided for, such annual sum as shall make up to him an income, as minor canon, not exceeding in any case the said şum of one hundred and fifty pounds : ? spy ,, " And whereas application has been made to us by the Dean and Chapter of the collegiate church of Saint Peter, Westminster to fix the number and emoluments of the Minor Canons in the said church as hereinafter mentioned : .. “ And whereas it has been represented to us by the said Dean and Chapter, that the number of Minor Canons in the said church has hitherto been six, and that the stipend of each Minor Canon, payable out of the revenues of the said church, amounts, as last fixed, to the annual sum of one hundred and seventeen pounds, and no more; and that it is expedient that the same number of six Minor Canons should be continued in the said church; and it has been further represented to us by the said Dean and Chapter, that they have assigned to the two junior Minor Canons, who have been appointed since the passing
of the said recited Act, fixed annual stipends, as such Minor Canons, of one hundred and fifty pounds each, and that the three senior Minor Canons, although receiving, as Minor Canons, the smaller stipends aforesaid, are otherwise competently provided for; but that the Reverend Randle Jackson Waters, the fourth Minor Canon, who also receives the smaller annual stipend aforesaid, is not otherwise competently provided for : :- 66 And whereas by and under an Order of your Majesty in Council, bearing date the third day of April last, the Deans, and future Canons of the said church are charged with the payment to us of a certain portion of their respective incomes, so as to reduce the same to the average annual amounts respectively named in the same Act; and, in making such reduction, their existing incomes respectively have been estimated without accounting for any increase in the stipends of the Minor Canons of the said church :
“ Now, therefore, we humbly recommend and propose, that the number of Minor Canons in the said collegiate church of Westminster shall .from henceforth be and continue to be six; and that there shall be paid to each Minor Canon in the said church, appointed after the passing of the said recited Act, a fixed annual stipend, as such Minor Canon, of one hundred and fifty pounds : !“ And we further recommend and propose, that, so long as the said Randle Jackson Waters shall continue to be a Minor Canon in the same church, and shall not hold any other office therein, or any benefice, there shall be paid to him, by the Treasurer or other proper officer of the said church, in addition to his aforesaid stipend of one hundred and seventeen pounds, the annual sum of thirty-three pounds by equal half-yearly payments, and that two of such payments shall be considered
to have been due and payable to him at the expiration of six calendar months from the day of the general audit of the said Dean and Chapter now last past; and that the said Treasurer or other officer shall and may, from time to time, retain, out of any monies payable to us in respect of any canonry or canonries now or hereafter suspended in the said church, such sum or sums of money as may have been so paid to the said Randle Jackson Waters, and also every such sum of money as, according to the same rate of increase of stipend, shall have been paid to each and every Minor Canon appointed after the passing of the said recited Act:
“ And we further recommend and propose, that nothing herein contained shall prevent us from recommending and proposing other measures relating to the matters to which this our scheme applies, or any of them, in conformity with the provisions of the said recited Act.”
And whereas notice of the said scheme has been duly given to the Dean and Chapter of the collegiate church of Saint Peter, Westminster, pursuant to the provisions of the said Act, and no objection has been made thereto :
And whereas the said scheme has been approved by Her Majesty in Council ; now, therefore, Her Majesty, by and with the advice of Her said Council, is pleased hereby to ratify the said scheme, and to order and direct that the same shall be effectual in law immediately from and after the time when this Order shall have been duly published in the London Gazette, pursuant to the said Act; and Her Majesty, by and with the like advice, is pleased hereby to direct, that this Order be forthwith registered by the Registrar of the diocese of London.
