since the principle of collective responsibility emerged. A part of it was the making of a report on every meeting of the Cabinet for the Sovereign, a duty now fulfilled by forwarding a copy of the minutes.
For the Prime Minister is the chairman of the Cabinet. As such he controls its agenda, accepting or rejecting proposals for discussion put forward by its members, and adding to them on his own authority alone. Being both the creator of the Cabinet and its most weighty and influential member, and having also the power to decide what shall come before it, he is naturally consulted by every minister before an important matter is put forward and his support solicited. He may quite possibly say, "I advise you to reconsider your suggestion for this reason and that, and meanwhile it had better not come before the Cabinet." As guide of the Cabinet he is the chief co-ordinator of the policies of the several ministers and ministries. He, more than anyone, must endeavour to see the work of the Government as a whole, and to persuade a committee of men, the majority of whom are primarily concerned with a single branch of administration, to do the same. In carrying out this part of his work he is, or should be, assisted particularly by those of his colleagues who hold Cabinet posts with only nominal duties, such as the Lord President and the Lord Privy Seal. He is apt also to have one or two friends in the Cabinet whose judgment he specially values and whom he consults for preference upon the general problems of policy that arise. There may be one or two figures of peculiar eminence or power who must be consulted if Cabinet and party harmony are to be preserved. The Chancellor of the Exchequer as second member of the Government is generally one of these. So may be the Foreign Secretary or the Lord Chancellor, as
