Certainly we ought to try and accommodate the public, but according to the British constitution, and i think also according to common sense, the public is better accommodated when there are rules surrounding that accommodation and which the public need to understand. But my hon. friend is a reformer, and perhaps he wants to accommodate the public without any rules at all. Perhaps he is in favour of some of those corporations who are generally suitors for private legislation.
