Excerpt from Course of Commercial Policy at Home and Abroad: Reprinted From the Foreign and Colonial Quarterly Review, January, 1843

A short note of explanation is necessary in presenting to the public of to-day this article by the great Liberal statesman. Though public interest in the history of Free Trade is chiefly concentrated on the Repeal of the Corn Laws, this great reform was in itself only an incident, though the most important incident, in the progress of this country from a system of ultra Protection to one of Free Trade. Other stages only less important were the large reductions in the tariff enacted by Huskisson in 1825-6 and by Lord Sydenham in the 'thirties. Further drastic reductions were carried out by Sir Robert Peel's Government in 1842 which, while arousing strong opposition from the Protectionist supporters of the Government, failed to satisfy the growing party of the Free Traders. In the controversy that arose Mr. Gladstone took a prominent part in the defence of the Government, a part which is thus alluded to in Lord Morley's "Life." Writing of the year 1845, Lord Morley says:

"Before many days were over, he (Mr. Gladstone) was working day and night on a projected statement, involving much sifting and preparation, upon the recent commercial legislation. Lord John Russell had expressed a desire for a competent commentary on the results of the fiscal changes of 1842, and the pamphlet in which Mr. Gladstone showed what those results had been was the reply. Three editions of it were published within the year."
