Excerpt from Substance of Two Speeches: Delivered in the House of Commons, on the 21st and 25th of March 1825, by the Right Hon. William Huskisson, Respecting the Colonial Policy, and Foreign Commerce of the Country

I can assure the Committee that if I am about to recommend alterations which are at variance with the ancient sentiments of this country, in respect to Colonial policy and trade, it is not because I consider the views of our ancestors as necessarily erroneous, or that innovation must necessarily be improvement; but it is, because the circumstances and state of the world, in which we have to examine colonial interests, have changed; and it becomes us, as practical Statesmen, to deal with those interests with a reference to that change. It is only in this sense, and with this qualification, that I desire to be looked upon as an innovator.' I am not anxious to give effect to ner principles, where circumstances do not call for their appli cation; feeling as I 'do, from no small experience in public business - and every day confirms that feeling - how much, in the vast and complex interests of this country, all general theories, however incontrovertible in the abstract, require to be weighed with a calm circumspection, to be directed by a temperate discretion, and to be adapted to all the existing relations of society, with a careful hand, and a due regard to the establishments and institutions which have grown up under those 'relations.
