The Colonies and the Navy. SPEECH BY SIR MICHAEL HICKS BEACH. London, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 3 July 1897
TJie Colonies and the Navy. SPEECH BY SIR MICHAEL HICKS BEACH. London, Thursday. Sir Michael Hicks Beach says that Great Britain has relieved the colonies of the cost of providing a navy against possible enemies, bot could not relieve them of the duty of coast defence. Great Britain spent £22,000,000 yearly upon the defence of colonies that had a population of only 10,000,000, and those colonies paid only a few thousands towards that amount. It was impos sible for this to remain a permanent settlement. The colonial trade relations had hitherto conflicted with free trade, and the action of Canada in opening her ports on a preferential tariff was the best possible basis of agreement yet pro posed. He did not believe that the colonies would shirk their responsibility SB regarded the navy.
