1. In the article on 'The Organisation of the Empire,' in the July number, the reviewer misrepresents The Empire on the Anvil'in two material points. (1) He writes—Mr Worsfold

proposes alternative schemes—the first “a half-way house,” the second, a Supreme Imperial Parliament. The order should be reversed. The ‘half-way house' is proposed only to meet the contingency of an organic union proving impracticable for the time being, and to prepare directly the Empire for the subsequent creation of a full federal union' (p. 152). It is equally misleading to say that I • suggest also' a 'Dominions Council (of Delegates).' This Council, the composition and powers of which are set out fully on pp. 165–9, is the essential feature of the scheme; since it gives the Dominions power to grant, or withhold, supplies, and meets the difficulty formulated by Mr Asquith in the Conference of 1911. Also, it is incorrect to say that I propose that the Dominions should contribute proportionately to their population.' The text of the book runs, Such contributions to be adjusted in each case to (say) two-thirds of an amount proportionate on a basis of population to the amount provided by the United Kingdom for the same services' (p. 165).

(2) This misconception of the purpose of the half-way house' leads the reviewer to make the wholly erroneous suggestion (which runs through pp. 276-7 of the July number), that the proposals primarily advocated by me 'do not touch the essence of the demand of the Oversea British ; i.e. for 'a share in the sovereignty of the Empire'; and that in this respect, therefore, my book contrasts with “The Problem of the Commonwealth.' While in other respects Mr Curtis' proposals differ widely from mine, on this point we are agreed; and the terms in which this demand' is urged in The Empire on the Anvil' would seem to preclude any possibility of misunderstanding. They are: ‘No system of Imperial administration which does not give the Oversea British a right to vote for the election of a cabinet-making and revenue-raising representative Chamber will suffice to put them on an equality with the Home British, or restore to them the full rights of their British citizenship' (p. 92).
