THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

is a majority government, the Cabinet, through party discipline and its control over the time-table of the House, can determine what Bills shall be given the necessary facilities and even how much discussion shall be allowed to them. If in the first instance the Bill is drafted by the Department in conjunction with the Parliamentary Counsel at the Treasury, it is with the minister's supervision and approval. It is he who secures to it the necessary allocation of Parliamentary time. And if amendments are to be incorporated in it, then only with his acceptance of them can they hope to reach the statute book. Parliament, it may be said, is often responsible for such amendments, because it indicates to the minister in the course of debate the measure of discontent evoked by his proposals. But if this is so then we must include legislation among the functions of many bodies other than the House of Commons. The Council for Civil Liberties, by the public speeches it organized and the prominent citizens it drew together, was certainly more effective than the Parliamentary Opposition in persuading Mr. MacDonald's National Government to alter the Incitement to Disaffection Bill.(1) The fact that it is the business of the Opposition to oppose tends to discount its criticism in advance, and to render that of some independent body or prominent citizen of more immediate effect.
But it still remains true that Parliament is the stage on which the proposed legislation is revised. Without securing the services of Members, an interest is, to say the least,much less likely to find its criticism fruitful of results. The interests organise deputations to the minister because they know that if they can persuade him all will be well. They appreciate
