Presents the Privy Council's debate of the draft bill and Legislative Bureau's preparation for the Diet debates. Before the draft could be submitted to the Diet, the Privy Councillors, former prime ministers and other conservative advisers to the emperor, examined and debated it. In eleven sessions between April 22 and June 3, the councillors expressed deep concern about the chapters on the emperor, on the permanent disarmament of Japan and many other provisions of the draft, but came to understand why they could not change them. These sessions helped minister Kanamori Tokujirō and Satō Tatsuo of the Legislation Bureau to prepare the government to face the House of Representatives in the debate of this bill.

Keywords:   House of Representatives, Legislation Bureau, preparation for debates, Privy Council, Satō Tatsuo, Kanamori Tokujirō
