THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

ing and opposition parties. The Conservative Party has absorbed both the Tory and the Whig under the threat of the new element of Labour, and the battle in the Commons is now between the propertied and the unpropertied. Capital has as its ambassadors the 188 members of the 1931 House of Commons who between them held 691 directorships of companies, including 142 chairmanships, and this figure excludes the ministers who held between them 97 additional directorships before taking office. Of these 188 no less than 184 were supporters of the National Government, 165 being Conservatives; and the two from the Labour Party only figure technically, the one as director of a co-operative society and the other of a trade union journal .(1) Nor are these figures exceptional: in the 1929 Parliament 154 M.P.s held 581 directorships, 116 being chairmanships, and in that of 1924 206 M.P.s held 766 directorships, of which 150 were chairmanships.(2) In the Parliament of 1922 it has been reckoned that of the 400 Members outside the Labour Party and the Government, 255 were company directors and landowners representing a total capital of nearly 2000,000,000 pounds. Sixtysix M.P.s were directors of companies belonging to the Federation of British Industries, and since the formation in 1918 of a Parliamentary Committee of the F.B.L, together with a liaison department for the purpose of keeping in direct touch with Government Departments, a constant influence has been exerted by the Federation on the Government. (3) The Federation itself said with pride that the "pressure which has been exerted by the Federation has not been without result."
