The controller of an economic monopoly is no less immune from complacency than the departmental official. Moreover, the Post Office, although wrapped in none of this newly invented cottonwool, is in many ways-and especially in the last few years -a model of efficiency. Experience of this service shews very clearly that the real problem in organising these utilities has not yet been fully appreciated. For it was not until there had been a certain relaxation of Treasury control that it began its recent improvements.
Relaxation, however, is negative, and as such it is typical of the methods applied. The truth is that a beginning has hardly yet been made in working out the positive principles which should govern the attitude of the State to socialised undertakings. Treasury control of expenditure, whether on staff remuneration or on development, may be far more stultifying than Parliamentary criticism, but in some form it is necessary. When criticism is organised and properly informed, as it might be expected to be if Parliamentary procedure were adapted through the creation of the specialised committees already suggested,(1) it might be valuably constructive.
