The Durham Report laid the foundations for the new British settlement Empire, and it did much to reconcile the anti-imperialist "Little Englanders" to the idea of Empire. It also strengthened the convictions of those who believed that the links between Britain and its English-speaking colonies had to be free from any coercion or that they should be broken by mutual consent.
