[Parliament]:

THE TRUE STATE OF THE QUESTION.

J. Debrett, London: 1784 37, [1 advt] pp. Disbound, a couple of spots, else Very Good. First and only edition. "Considers the question whether the system of a strong responsible parliamentary administration should be restored" [NUC]. In England, ministers are "responsible to parliament for their conduct, and looking up to parliament for support; and not as in despotic governments, the mere instruments of the will of an arbitrary master." This is "the great palladium of the Constitution." The author attacks "Lord B." [Bute] and the King for subverting this system during the events leading to the American Revolution, and giving the executive arm of government over to "men ever unfriendly to liberty." FIRST EDITION.
