THE CABINET

not mean that its holder must necessarily sit in the Cabinet. The ministers of Pensions and Mines are not in the Cabinet; nor sometimes is the minister of Transport or the PostmasterGeneral or the head of the Office of Works. It follows therefore that this accretion of new ministries is not in itself a sufficient explanation. It is even possible for two offices to be combined in the person of one man, and there is little to be said against such a practice where the two offices are not particularly onerous, as is the case with those for the Dominions and Colonies, although on the other hand the combination of the premiership with the Foreign Office has proved unsatisfactory.
The explanation, if it is to be found partly in the increase of State activity, is also to be attributed to habit, to the creation by custom of an accepted claim on the part of a department to separate Cabinet representation, and to the desire to give recognition and reward to politicians. Indeed, once the number has passed the optimum for reaching a real and creative consensus, a unity of mind and purpose, an esprit de corps, further additions seem to have little importance. This optimum is normally placed at anything between five and ten, but is certainly nearer the former than the latter. It is significant that under the strain of war the large Cabinet was abandoned in favour of a Cabinet of five which could meet so frequently as to be in almost constant session. It was found that the larger body was too cumbersome an instrument for producing the rapidity of decision required. This War Cabinet had the great advantage that, except for the Chancellor of the Exchequer, its members were without departments and were freed therefore from absorbing requirements of administrative routine. It was a thinking, co-ordinating and deciding body. As such it consulted whom
