THE HOUSE OF LORDS

government is placed beyond their effective control. They can criticize, and their criticisms are often valuable and influential, but they cannot enforce their criticisms. The ministry cannot afford to disregard a resolution or vote of the house of commons expressing or implying condemnation of their policy or action. Such a resolution or vote must shake them, may destroy them. But they can afford to disregard a condemnatory resolution passed by the lords. In short, it is to the commons, and not to the lords, that the executive government is responsible, so far as responsibility implies enforceable control. What then remains to the house of lords ? Very great powers. In the sphere of executive government, the lords can, and do, express their opinion with greater freedom than is possible in a body where the bonds of party discipline are more strictly drawn; and those who take part in and influence their debates speak with all the authority that attaches to high position, to recognized ability, and to ripe experience. Such authority is not to be measured by votes on a division, any more than the influence of debates in the house of commons is to be so measured, and is operative although it cannot be enforced. Debates in the house of lords on questions of policy and administration are often of great value, carry great weight, and materially influence the opinion of the country and the action of the government.
