structure. Those who have economic power have also the political power. The best paying methods of earning a living are its monopoly. It permeates the professions; and industry itself by which it rose and won its dominance over the landowning interest becomes increasingly a preserve limited in its directive posts to its own more wealthy members.
That there has been some development towards social equality in England is as indisputable as that there has recently been somemovement away fromeven the nineteenthcentury middle-class conception of liberty. From the poor law reform and factory legislation of a century ago we have moved to an extensive educational, health, housing, and pensions service which operates in the direction of equality. The franchise has been extended to remove the property qualification save in regard to the second vote, with subsidiary effects on the delineation of certain constituencies. Taxation has been developed to produce a heavy incidence on the more wealthy section of society, though until the second world war it had not materially reduced the unequal distribution of the national income. The socialisation of a few public services and the growth of some new ones under social and municipal control is a move in the same direction, although it is only now affecting the key industries or the most profitable ones. There has emerged a party quite distinct from the middle-class parties of the nineteenth century. This party has seriously changed the class basis of Parliament and of the Cabinet when it has enjoyed short periods of minority government. But while these things have happened they cannot yet be said to have in any way endangered the essential quality of the Constitution, its integration by a single dominant section of the community. The interesting question that emerges is how far the political system is likely
