THE CABINET

a chance of influence or pressure which even to-day may not be without importance. The Prime Minister's freedom of choice is also limited by the claims of eminent and powerful colleagues. There are always a few of these with important following who must be given the chief posts. Sometimes he may be faced by a group of four or five who make their acceptance conditional on the allocation of certain offices to specified people. Mr. MacDonald and four of his principal colleagues in his previous government together settled the chief appointments in 1929. This limitation is peculiarly important in the case of a coalition government as in 1916 and 1931. Further restriction is imposed by the need for having an adequate number of spokesmen in the House of Lords and for not exceeding the permitted number of secretaries of state in the Commons. It is not unknown for the Prime Minister to consult the Cabinet on additional appointments, and a minister is normally consulted on the appointment of his political under-secretary. The Prime Minister has also to select a team which is likely to work together. He must consider the political and administrative capacity of his nominees and the special needs of the various departments.
Royal interference in the affairs of the Cabinet has always in the history of Cabinet government proved peculiarly difficult to avoid. The habit which developed in England in the eighteenth century of private meeting without the presence of the King, and which Talleyrand introduced at the French restoration, proved the first essential for preventing it. Collective responsibiliry provided an additional security. But it has long been open to question how far the Sovereign should be informed of differences of opinion within the Cabinet. Practice has varied on this point;(1)
