The government thus has straight- ened up the House .of Lords, giving -that body the' choice between accepti- ing the government plan of reform for the upper house or an immediate dis- solution. Asquith referring to the abortive "Veto conference between the leaders of! .the government and its opponents, .said that when the House adjourned day 'afternoon after passing 'various- legislation of great benefit the or- der.

The result is that they'must revert to a state of war. Asquith said: "The Lords will be given'-an opportunity of saying "yes-" or "no" to .the.'government's Veto! biiFin the coming week.
