Abstract

It is the purpose of this paper to investigate how well the Constitution's provisions concerning the Council worked in practice. Was the Council merely a group of automatons only working on legislation passed by the legislature? In the light of changes in the government due to changes of parties in power, could a Radical Council carry a conservative program with equanimity, and could a Conservative Council overcome the temptation to read newly passed legislation in a variety of ways to suit its own purposes?
