The Irish market in footwear was always of great importance to the British importers. When the tariff was first imposed in 1924 "the Irish Free State took one-third of the total British exports of footwear." (Economic Journal, Vol. 37, June, 1927.) When introducing the first tariff the Minister for Finance "designated it as a limited experiment in the use of a tariff with the object of stimulating the industry of the Soarstat." (Economic Journal, loc. cit.) In this paper I propose to examine the results of that "limited experiment" which has now developed into the more full blooded experiment of Quota prohibition.
