THE HOUSE OF LORDS

And, at a somewhat later date, at times when the political complexion of the majority in the lords was tivhig and broad church, whilst that of the commons was tory and high church, the differences of opinion between the two houses were sometimes serious. But, during the greater part of the eighteenth century, and indeed down to the time of the Reform Act of 1832, there were no serious conflicts between them. Nor was there any reason why there should be. The causes and elements of difference were absent. The members of the house of commons were, in the main, drawn from the same classes as the members of the house of lords, represented the same opinions and interests, and were, in many cases, directly nominated by individual peers. Since 1332 the position has been materially altered. The extension of the franchise, the advance of democratic ideas, and the change of views about the powers and duties of the state in dealing with social and economic problems, have tended, and are daily tending, to widen the gulf between the popular house and the house which specially represents tradition, aristocracy and wealth. The lords have, for several generations, met the difficulties of the position by prudently and sagaciously limiting the exercise of their powers.
