May vote on us up Cabinet Menzies states View Canberra by Telegram the prime minister or. Menzies will not oppose the principle that part of a Federal Liberal country party Cabinet should be elected by rank and me government members. Or. Menzies has indicated privately that he does not consider selection of the full Cabinet by the prime minister to be necessarily me Oeser course. The state Liberal party convention in Brisbane on Friday car ried a motion urging that be third of Liberal Fede ral Cabinet ministers be selected by the party s Leader and the remainder by vote of the rank and file. This will find Strong sup port among a Large group of Liberal private members particularly from new South Wales. The position at present is that Liberal members have no say in the formulation of Federal policy beyond the offering of advice or criticism at party meetings and the More drastic step of voting against the govern ment in the House. Government members also ind that some ministers. Particularly Junior ministers consider their responsibility is towards the party Leader who selected them and not towards private members. I Independent. Liberal Cabinet ministers Are thus in a much More powerful and Independent position than labour ministers who must justify their actions to the labour rank and file which selected them and which votes on their decisions at caucus meetings.
