THE HOUSE OF LORDS

its judicial functions are peculiar to itself. The control of the house of lords, by way of appeal, over the action of the English courts of common law may be traced back to the time when it was the king's great council. The control was subsequently extended to the courts of chancery or equity in England, and to the courts of Scotland and Ireland. But it has never been extended to the ecclesiastical courts, or to the courts in British dominions beyond the seas. In appeals from these courts its place is taken by the judicial committee of the privy council.
Although the judicial functions of the house of lords are of great antiquity, the activity of their exercise, and the mode in which they have been exercised, have varied much. During the greater part of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries they were practically dormant. During most of the eighteenth century they were exercised by the lord chancellor of the day, "sitting in judicial solitude," as Erskine May says, "with two mute, untrained lords in the background to represent the collective wisdom of the court."
Lord Selborne's scheme for amalgamating the courts threatened the judicial powers of the house of lords with extinction, for the supreme court which he called into being was intended to be supreme in fact as well as in name, and its decisions were intended to be final. But before his Judicature Act came
