We threw it out because we regarded it as a cynical attempt to manipulate the Constitution for party purposes. We insisted on amending- the Education Bill, and the Government dropped it. That Bill afforded no settlement' xi o e<Jpa-on problem. If we are to revise the Constitution, let us do it upon broader" grounds than that. Let the Government clear" their minds. Let them determine what it is' they really want. rl :;c people of this country" know very well whatever danger is to be appre- hended from an unreformed House of Lords;, it is nothing to the danger that is to be appre- hended from an uncontrolled House of.' Commons." The veteran Government leader, Lord Ripon,. said that reform of that House would not settle the whole difficulty* There were two difficulties before them. There was the reform of that Hous", as a Second Chamber, which be. as an advocate of a Second Chamber, strongly de- sired and there was the question how, when differences of opinion arose between the two Houses, these differences were to be brought to a conclusion. That was a question which in the opinion of the Government it was necessary now to consider. The difficulty to be considered was that that House, in its numbers and con- stitution. contained an overwhelming majority of one political party. That was a great danger. The subject was under the consideration of the Government. It was not to be hastily con- sidered. It was a very grave and serious matter, and the Government "felt it to be their duty to take time to consider the proposals which they would submit to Parliament.
