Question 4.

In several different parts of Europe the toll or lock-duty upon a canal is the property of private persons, whose private interest obliges them to keep up the canal. If it is not kept in tolerable order, the navigation necessarily ceases altogether, and along with it the whole profit which they can make by the tolls. If those tolls were put under the management of commissioners, who had themselves no interest in them, they might be less attentive to the maintenance of the Works which produce them. The canal of Languedoc cost the King of France and the province upwards of thirteen millions of livres, which (at 28 lines the mark of silver, the value of French money in the end of the last century) amounted to upwards of £900,000. When that great work was finished, the most likely method, it was found, of keeping it in constant repair was to make a present of the tolls to Riquet, the engineer who planned and conducted the work. Those tolls constitute at present a very large estate to the different branches of the family of that gentleman. who have therefore a great interest to keep the work in constant repair. But had those tolls been put under the management of commissioners, who had no such interest, they might perhaps have been dissipated in ornamental and unnecessary expenses, while the most essential parts of the work were allowed to go to ruin.

The tolls for the maintenance of a high-road cannot with any safety be made the property of private persons. A high-road. though entirely neglected, does not become altogether impassable, though a canal does. The proprietors of the tolls upon a high-road, therefore, might neglect altogether the repair of the road and yet continue to levy very nearly the same tolls. It is proper, therefore, that the tolls for the maintenance of such a work should be put under the management of commissioners or trustees. — (Adam Smith). (326 words)
