THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

Even Mr. Churchill, who argued before the Select Committee on Procedure on Public Business that the House was as much concerned to prevent as to pass legislation, was in favour of changes at this stage. There should be an increase in the number of committees, which should consist of about 25 instead of the present Go or 70 members. The Bill should be considered by them with the possibility of hearing expert witnesses. Debate on the report stage should be restricted and every Bill should be subjected to a time-table for its whole career. Each committee should have the function of generally considering the state of the law relating to the matter with which it is concerned, and where it saw the need for the introduction of a Bill it should be at liberty to propose it to the House. Everything which has passed through it, whether in this way or after second reading, should be assured of sufficient allocation of time to allow of its passage. If it be thought that such a committee would take up too much of the minister's time, the remedy seems to lie in the more frequent delegation of his responsibility to the junior minister. If it is argued that such committees would interfere with the minister's responsibility, it must be answered first that a majority of the committee will be members of the minister's parry in general agreement with him and likely to be of assistance to him in his dealings both with his Department's claims and with the Opposition, and secondly, that he has still in the last resort the Government majority to back him on third reading.
But the chief task of the House of Commons is to maintain a government. For this there must be a coherent majority in agreement with the general policy of the Cabinet, willing to entrust it with vital decisions, looking to it for leadership, and broadly having confidence in the persons who compose
