The Plan of Reform
Excerpt from The Plan of Reform: Proposed by Sir Francis Burdett, Correctly Reported in Two Speeches; Delivered in Parliament, Recommending an Inquiry Into the State of the RepresentationThe following Correct Report of the Speeches delivered by Sir Francis Burdett in the House of Commons, in support of his Motion for an Inquiry into the State of the Representation, is submitted to the Public, as a refutation of the gross and unfounded calumnies, with which the advocates of corruption have endeavoured to asperse the character of the patriotic Representative of Westminster. The perusal of these pages will convince the British Nation, that the worthy Baronet's Plan of Reform calls for no change, contemplates no revolution, but is, on the contrary, a temperate effort to restore to the Constitution its original spirit, and to secure to the People "the reality and uses of Representation in Parliament."The Speech of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in opposition to this plan, is also given according to the best report of it that could be obtained, in order that, wherever the subject of Reform may be considered, the people may be acquainted that, as the matter now stands, they are regarded as accomplices in all the corruptions, and crimes, connected with the present system; and that even the Ministers would blush for what they do, could they not console themselves under the delusive notion that the Country is friendly to corruption.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
