THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

any general social policy directed by consciousness of this requirement of public interest. Available evidence points the other way. The field is unduly limited to that middle-class section of society with private incomes which can best afford the risks and economic insecurity of a political career. They are the people who have for long filled the House of Commons, just as they have filled the chief posts in State administration, in the Church, the services, the professions, and even in business. That financial limitation is, of course, nothing new; on the contrary, the fact that Members are now paid ought to diminish the force of that restriction. But it is doubtful how far it has done so, for it does not solve the problem either of the outlay necessary for candidature or of the financial insecurity of a political career. Payment at 1000 pounds a year is not excessive, above all when this insecurity is taken into account. The prospects of promotion are not good, and even if attained government office is apt to prove transient. To those without an income there are so many disadvantages attendant upon election that they can hardly be blamed for reluctance to stand. Generally their remuneration and security in alternative careers is so much better that they may be faced with a conflict between public service and private advantage. The result is likely often enough to be that only the second best go into politics.
There are further factors of more recent development which tend to restrict membership to the propertied section of the community. With the increasing integration of industry and commerce, and the regimentation of staff which has followed upon it, large numbers of citizens are forbidden all political activity, even including in some cases canvassing and clerical assistance.
