THE PARTIES

Campbell-Bannerman by the four chief men in the party in a letter written by Asquith, who was already beginning to be indicated as Campbell-Bannerman's probable successor. It is true that "the choice of the four needed the formal ratification of a party meeting, but for all practical purposes it was decisive."(1) The formal meeting consisted of Liberal M.P.s who met at the Reform Club. When Mr. Chamberlain succeeded Mr. Baldwin the choice seems to have followed the same lines, being subsequently confirmed by a meeting at which peers and candidates were also participants. The absence in these parties of formal machinery has sometimes left the Sovereign some freedom of choice. But although similar methods may be informally employed within the party executive it is to th~ person chosen by it as Labour leader that in the future the King will turn. Nor, again with the same proviso, may he usefully consult with elder statesmen and then exercise his own choice as did Queen Victoria in the case of Harcourt and Rosebery or as, in a less degree of independence, did George V in the case of Curzon and Baldwin; on the contrary he must defer to the selection of a successor freely made by the Parliamentary Parry.
While the party in Parliament is bound theoretically by the decisions on policy taken by the conference, it is its own judge as to how to interpret and apply them. Time, order, and method are so much the substance of policy that its decision, whether taken by its leaders in executive or Cabinet or by itself as a whole, must be at least as important as that of the conference, when, the party forms the government. But although the considerable overlapping of personnel makes conflict less probable, the possibility of adverse comment by the conference is a factor that, the Parliamentary
