Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 49 to any prospect of European reconstruction after the war." (Manifesto of Union of Democratic Control.) 2. Military, National and Imperial Considerations. (a) Many are demanding a Protective Tariff in the desire to make this country more self-sufficing for military purposes. For this reason it is contended we ought to " protect by Customs Duties, such "key-industries" as the making of optical glass and the manufacture of aniline dyes, as well as agriculture. [Has the term " key-industry " in this connection any definite meaning? What industries in this country during the present war were not key-industries? Will the specifically military key-industries of this war be the key-industries of the next? Can this country, with its huge commercial intercourse with other countries, ever become self-sufficing, even in a military sense?] Consider this,method of securing key-industries:—"Our view is that as soon as it is proved that a particular manufacture is vital to national defence and that the home supplies thereof are inadequate, it is the duty of the Government to establish a national factory with adequate plant for its.production on an adequate scale." ("Economist.)] (b) The agitation for a tariff is largely the outeome of the fact that during the war many people have been " learning to think imperially," and they believe that by tariff arrangements the Empire can be welded more firmly together. (Note that it is very doubtful whether our self-governing Dominions, which "protect" their own manufacturers mainly against British goods, will desire anything like a British Empire Zollverein or Customs Union.) 3. Economic Considerations. \ Advocacy of tariff proposals upon ethical, national and imperial grounds, is intelligible; but upon strictly economic, grounds the arguments against Protective duties remain, for this country at any rate, just as overwhelming after the war as they were before it. (Note that nothing has occurred during the war to modify the truth of Prof. Bastable's assertion :—" Whatever be the course of events, the soundness and expediency of Free Trade remain abundantly established, though it may be difficult to bring national policy into conformity with the results of reasoned theory." (" Theory of International Trade.")
