THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

Another need is the provision of an alternative govern ment. If a Cabinet or a majority may disintegrate at any time there must be a new body of men ready and able to take office. In its ability to meet this requirement lies one of the chief virtues of a Parliamentary system. The leaders of the Opposition have normally the opportunity in the House of hearing an immediate and first-hand description and defence of the Government's proceedings. They must indicate in criticism what steps they would themselves take were they responsible. In doing so they are defining in reasonably concrete shape their own policy at the same time as they are appealing through the medium of the House for popular support at the next election. They are speaking in the presence of men who have to conduct the actual business of government; they are conscious that at some time they themselves may have a similar responsibility; they address an assembly which records and may remember what they say; and they are more likely therefore to keep to reality and to see the issue in terms of what is practical than when their public utterances are confined to addressing their own followers from a public platform. There are great advantages, moreover, in retaining ex-ministers near to their successors, for the value of their criticism is often in proportion to their experience.
All that has been said about the importance of maintaining a ministry implies that a Parliamentary system containing only two parties, one of which must at any time have a clear majority and therefore the opportunity of exercising power, is preferable to a Parliament split into three or more groups combining in uncertain and ephemeral coalition. It has the great advantage of clarifying the issues. It fixes responsibility. Nothing is more vital to good government than the
