The report of the Tariff Commission

Institution: Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland

I propose in this paper to criticise Mr. Chamberlain's Tariff
Commission and its report issued on the 21st July last;
just a week after the meeting held at Westminster, passed
resolutions adopting his fiscal policy.
The Commissioners tell us that Mr. Chamberlain requested
them to examine his fiscal proposals, and to report
"What would be their probable effect on present
conditions ?"
"Whether any and what modifications therein are
desirable having due regard to the general interests of
the community ?"
"Upon the best way to harmonise conflicting
"What duties, if any, should be recommended?"
But we are nowhere told what Mr. Chamberlain's fiscal
proposals are.
