THE ADMINISTRATION

These bodies call for remark in relation to the two general principles already laid down.
How far do we find, in the first place, that their responsibility to the public they are set up to serve is effectively organised? The public utility board is a mechanism consciously designed to insulate the administrator from detailed Parliamentary interference. It was thought that the need to be ready to defend his every daily action would cramp the initiative so essential to the running of an economic service. Too much energy would be devoted to forestalling criticism and too little to invention. Departure from precedent would be avoided where possible, rather than welcomed in an experimental mood, because it would require lengthy justification, and stagnation would be the result. That is the argument put at its highest. Behind it as its motive force there has always been the middle class business man's dislike of "political interference," by which he means the power on the part of popular representatives or public officials to hold him to account for his activities. At the same time, it was clearly impossible to allow complete autonomy not subject at any stage to public criticism or political control. A solution was sought by organising semi-independent bodies with ministerial responsibility for general policy instead of for each particular application. Contingent and occasional Parliamentary supervision replaced detailed dayto-day enquiry and criticism. But the methods have shewn extreme variation and no clear adhesion to principles.
There is some force in the argument for instituting a board in preference to a department on orthodox lines; but it can easily be exaggerated. Criticism and publicity may also spur on to achievement. Inventiveness may win praise instead of hostility. It is said that political criticism is ill-informed, but
