Download PDF for this date

The leaders of the three Parties, the Prime Minister, Mr. Ramsay MacDonald, the leader of the National Labour Party, Mr. Baldwin, the leader of the conservative Party, and Sir Herbert Samuel, the leader of the Liberal Party, will meet tomorrow in order to discuss the reconstruction of the Cabinet, it is stated to-day.

Several other Party leaders will probably be consulted, particularly Sir John Simon and Mr. Hore Belisha, the leaders of the Simonite Liberals who are both mentioned for inclusion in the new Government.

The new Cabinet will, it is understood, number over 20, instead of the ten agreed upon when the National Government was formed, for now that there is a settled Government, Cabinet Committees will be appointed to deal with specific problems.

Mr. MacDonald will see the King probably to-morrow or Friday, in order to submit to him the names of the new Cabinet.
