have occurred of a war with the Ameer of Afghanistan, and we feel it to be our duty
very respectfully to express to your Majesty our regret that as soon as your Majesty's
servants were satisfied that war had become so probable as to impose upon them the

necessity of ordering costly preparations for it to be commenced, they did not advise

your Majesty to summon Parliament to meet with the least possible delay, in order

that due provision might be made for the expense to be incurred, and that an

opportunity might be offered to Parliament, before the war was begun, of considering

the grounds on which it was to be undertaken, and of forming a judgment as to its

justice and necessity,”)(The Earl Grey)
