Report to the King from the Treasury Lords on two estimates from the Admiralty Lords, one for an increase of pay to the officers of the Fleet, the other for half pay to Flag Officers and to several Captains and others in time of peace. As these papers are transmitted to us from Sir John Trenchard, Secretary of State, without any representation from the Admiralty Lords of the reasons and motives which have induced them to propose such an increase of charge, we are unable to give your Majesty any opinion of the expediency thereof. Your Majesty's revenue is at this time so much anticipated as to be no way in a condition to support so great an additional expence, estimated at near 60,000l. per an. and which when introduced may probably amount to more. And therefore if these augmentations shall be thought necessary for the service at this time we conceive it might have been proper to have laid the consideration of the same before the House of Commons, to the end a proportionable fund might be provided for this use.
