Churchill is speaking on a new propose duty on artificial silk.

 

Excerpt from Robert Rhodes James’ ‘Winston S. Churchill His Complete Speeches 1897-1963 Volume IV 1922-1928’ (1974, Page 3672)

 

We have no intention of inserting a definition [of artificial silk]. With regard to the commodities which are in a state of flux in development, on the edge, fringe or borderland, commodities which might conceivably take form in a process of invention as a commodity on which a duty would be leviable there is always a certain amount of interrogation which is necessary. Of course, we all very well know the difficulty of things. There is the difficulty of defining an elephant. Everyone would recognize an elephant, but it is another matter to define one. The great Napoleon said a Constitution should be short and obscure, and the great Disraeli said that sensible men are all of the same religion. When pressed to define the religion he advised sensible men never to tell. It was in no Machiavellian spirit that the Government has decided not to insert a definition of artificial silk in this measure.
