THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

on fruitless discussion, and eventually to break up. Time is spent on bargaining for place which could more profitably be used for getting to work. The politics of compromise which characterise a coalition mean stagnation or disagreement. It is true that a government which speaks with several voices may seem for a time to satisfy conflicting groups, but confidence in it is bound to evaporate, for if it acts it will forfeit support from one side, and if it does not act it will proclaim its impotence. And, assuming that a common policy exists, unless the Parliamentary majority has sufficient confidence in its leaders, and enough coherency to be able to await results, no valid judgment can be made either by Parliament or by the electorate as to the policy itself. But this is not to say that there can be no disagreement in an effective Cabinet. That would be absurd. It asserts merely that where the area of disagreement approaches in importance the area of agreement harmony is impossible, and without harmony neither effectiveness nor public respect is possible. Probably the best combination is one in which community of ends is combined with a strong element of constructive criticism as to means. Nor does such an argument suggest that the trust of the Parliamentary majority should be a blind one. On the contrary, the necessity for blind trustfulness in a British Parliamentary majority may be as dangerous to good government as the excess of distrust sometimes characterising a French one. That is the consequence of the strength of the British Cabinet's position. It can make any matter, however trivial, a question of confidence, and attach to it as a consequence the threat of dissolution or resignation. Remedy must be sought by limiting the right of the minister to make amendments passed at the Committee stage into matters of confidence.
