Journal of the Dublin Statistical Society Vol.1, Part VII, 1856
Last session the French government presented to the Legislative
Body a bill for abolishing the prohibitions against importation which
abound in the tariff, and replacing them by duties which, though
high, are not absolutely prohibitory. This bill was so unfavourably
received, that it was deemed advisable to let it stand over for the next
session; and, in the mean time, it has been brought under the notice
of the Councils-General of the eighty-six departments of France,
to give them an opportunity of pronouncing for or against it. As
the protectionist interest is strong in France, especially among the
classes who usually compose the majority of the Councils-General,
it is not to be expected that many of them will come forward in
favour of free trade.
