INTRODUCTION

The King acts only on the advice of his ministers. The King's legal power of veto has become obsolete, not having been exercised since the time of the House of Stuart. How far these conventions are accepted and are likely to be observed is discussed below,(1) but it is worth pointing out here that when the policy of a Liberal Government and House of Commons met with strong opposition from the House of Lords and from those surrounding the King there was not wanting the highest opinion among constitutional lawyers and conservative leaders to suggest that neither convention need be applied. So that we are led to the conclusion, which we shall find reinforced, that the Constitution as it is works only because of a general agreement among opposed parties to work it, that the understandings upon which its efficient operation depends are themselves the product of a common interest. At moments when that common interest disappears or becomes less important than conflicting interests, that foundation of its effective working is liable to be removed.

II
The laws of the Constitution do not differ from other laws either in form or in source of origin. Parliament is both a legislative body and a constituent assembly. The difficulty of changing the British Constitution, as of any law under it, depends on the power and the tenacity of those who wish to change or to retain it.
Because of the similarity of form there is less facility in distinguishing between what in continental practice would be called the basic law, and other law. But we can safely say that certain laws are of major constitutional importance.
