THE ROYAL GRANTS. The following is the text of the Bill to make provision for the support and maintenance of children of the Prince of Wales :â Most Gracious Sovereign, Whereas your Majesty has, by your Majesty's most gracious Message, signified your desire that Parliament should make competent provision for the honourable support and maintenance of your Majesty's grandson Prince Albert Victor Christian Edward: Now therefore, we, your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, in Parliament assembled, taking into consideration your Majesty's gracious Messages, and being desirous to prevent the necessity for repeated applications to Parliament of behalf on your Majesty's family, and to establish the principal that the pro- vision for children should hereafter be made out of grants adequate for that purpose which have been assigned to their parents, nave cheer- fully granted to your Majesty the sum herein- after mentioned; & we do most humbly beseech your Majesty that it may be enacted, and be it enacted by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows I.-(I)Itshall be lawful for her Majesty the Queen by letters patent under the Great Seal of the United Kingdom to grant the Prince of Wales's trustees hereinafter mentioned, the annual sum of thirty-six thousand pounds, after the death of her Majesty, whom God long preserve. "(2.)The said annual sum shall be charged on and paid out of the Consolidated Fund or the growing produce thereof, and shall be paid quarterly. The first quarterly payment shall be made on the fifth day of October, one thousand eight hundred and eighty-nine, and on the day after the said annual sum determines a proportionate part shall be paid in respect of the period since the last quarterly day of payment. 11 2.-(1.) The persons who are for the time being the First Commissioner of her Majesty's Treasury, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Comptroller of Household and Trea- surer of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales shall be the Prince of Wales's trustees, and shall be a body corporate by that name, and any act of the trustees may be signified under the hands and seals of the persons who are trustees for the time being. "(2.) The trustees shall hold the annual sum granted to them under this Act, and any accumulations of that sum, whether arising by investment or otherwise, in trust for all or any one or more of the children of his Royal Highness Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, in such shares and at such times and in such manner and subject to such conditions and powers of revocation (including, if it is thought fit, a condition against alienation) as his Royal Highness, with the sanction of her Majesty the Queen, or, in the event of his Royal Highness predeceasing her Majesty, as her Majesty may, from time to time, by order countersigned by the First Commissioner of her Majesty's Treasury and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, appoint. "3.âThis Act may be cited as the Prince of Wales's Children Act, 1889." When the Prince of Wales Annuity Bill gets into Committee, a Motion will be made to reduce the amount of the annuity either to L0.15,000 or £ 20,000. Mr Wallace, on the Second Reading of the Prince of Wales Annuity Bill, moved that it be read a second time that day three months. Several of the Radical members intend to speak in support of the Amendment, and the Debate will, it is expected, eccupy the greater part of the sitting. Many of the Radicals are, however, in favour of allowing the remaining stages to pass without serious dis- cussion.
