This chapter discusses the controversies between George III and the factions, which centred on the appointment and dismissal of ministers. The question of ministerial responsibility had never been completely settled. The various impeachments of unpopular and unsuccessful ministers had clearly established the right of the House of Commons to criticize the king's instruments and to demand their removal, and when the quasi-criminal procedure of impeachment was replaced by a vote of censure, the right of the House of Commons was rendered more effective.

Keywords:   George III, factions, ministers, impeachments, House of Commons
