In an article last July, when the fiecal discussion was in its infancy and Mr. Chamberlain's proposals had not been definitely formulated, I pointed out how little difference even a 58. per quarter duty on foreign wheat imported into this country, and similar preferences on other articles of agricultural produce, would make to the Colonies, and how little difference in return would result to the United Kingdom from any preferences in their markets which the Colonies could give. Apart from all questions of principle, the proposals before the country, it seems to me, should be considered from this point of view. What is the use of endlessly discussing theories of free trade and protection when no material advantage can result to anybody from the special proposals put forward, even if protectionist principles are fully admitted ? I propose, therefore, to resume the discussion with reference to the preferences we are to give to the Colonies, and the advantages promised us in the shape of the extended colonial cultivation of wheat and other articles, and the final result of making the Empire self-sustaining in the matter of its food supplies. If the preferences will not conduce to these ends, and the final result is unattainable in any near future, if at all, why continue a discussion
