THE PARTIES

electoral power was rapid. The constituency party organisation consists of ward meetings which all members who pay their minimum subscription of a shilling a year may attend. The ward generally has a secretary, chairman, and collectors; it has the right to send delegates to the general committee of the constituency party, which in turn elects an executive. The general committee also contains the representatives of any local trade union branch or society that is affiliated. Extent of representation is proportional to membership. The general committee can discuss policy. It controls the affairs of the constituency party. Its secretary and chairman are often the most influential members of the party. In one out of about five cases there is also a paid agent. The committee instructs and sends delegates to the national conference.
The annual conference of the party is itself made up of the delegates of local parties, affiliated bodies and trade unions. It is the final authority. Its decisions determine party policy. Resolutions come to it from the bodies it represents, and from its own executive, the latter of course being the most important. They are debated in public session and a card vote is taken. This method of voting is hardly in accord with the best principles of representation. Under it many a delegate does not vote as a member of the conference sensible of a corporate responsibility with his fellow-members, but as the representative of a group which has instructed him beforehand to vote in a certain way. His vote, moreover, is weighted by reference to the size of the union or party for which he speaks. A single trade union delegate with, say, 400 votes may have a majority over 350 separate local parties, and he may come instructed to vote one way. Conference discussion therefore need not have any relation to the decision that follows, although as many delegates are
