COMING FRAY. PREMIER AND PEERS. Probable Line of Action. HEAVY WORK in THE commons. Great Financial Congestion. The Prime Minister with Mrs Asquith and Hiss Violet Asquith returned to 10, Downing- street on Thursday morning from Archerfield, East Lothian. During the day he received a number of his colleagues, including the Chancellor of the Exchequer and Mr ELaidane— both of whom had a lengthy conference with their leader. Mr J. A. Pease, the defeated Chief Whip, also had a lengthy interview with Mr Asquith. Other Ministers who were at their posts on Thursday were Lord Crewe, Mr McKenna, and Sir Edward Grey. A vast amount of arrears of work were Waiting for the Prime Minister. .A meeting of the Cabinet, it is understood, will be held early next week, at which the Prime Minister will take counsel with his colleagues as to the policy which the Govern- ment and the Liberal party shall pursue in the coming Parliament. Mr Asquith will also take an early opportunity of obtaining an audience of King Edward. Until this audience and the Cabinet Council have taken place no definite announcement of policy is to be expected. Presuming the Prime Minister meets Parlia- ment without first tendering his resignation to the King, and demanding pledges of support in amy future conflict with the Lords, the most pressing matter, says the Central News, will be "> dispose of the mass of Parliamentary business that must necessarily be got through before the 28th March, which marks the end of the financial vear 1909-10. Before that date tile Budget of last Session must be passed into law," and the Estimates for the coming year presented to and passed by the House of Com- mons. v The confusion caused by the rejection of the Budget will probably entail some supplemen- tary estimates, which must also be got rid of before that date. Then there is the Address in response to the Speech from the Throne, which Usually takes a fortnight. Presuming that Parliament meets on the 15th this would practically mean that the work Of a normal Session has to be crowded into six Weeks, but there is a probability that theState Opening of Parliament will be postponed from fee 15th to the 21st February in order that the days between that date may be given up to the formality of swearing-in members. This Would still further curtail the time at the dis- posal of the Prime Minister.
