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 interests?" "What duties, if any, should be recommended?" But we are nowhere told what Mr. Chamberlain's fiscal proposals are.
