Chapter Summary

Though weakened, the draft SAPL survived to see another day. Prime Minister Yoshida reshuffled his Cabinet once again to strengthen his hand in managing the issues stemming from the signing of the Peace and Security Treaties and internal security. This chapter discusses the proceedings that took place from December 1951 to Initial Cabinet Decision, March 28, 1952; the "Final" Cabinet decision; and the concluding with a Cherry Blossom Party. Under AG Kimura, there was a renewed determination to create a draft bill which would be the basis for common agreement. The two committees, the Cabinet Ordinances Consultative Committee reporting to the PM and the Liberal Party's Self-Defense and Public Security Investigation Committee played an active role mostly in telling the AG to delete fairly numerous provisions in the several draft s, rather than other government agencies normally involved in review of proposed legislation.
