BONAR LAW'S PROMISE. '.'. LONDON, February 17.'.' •In the House of Commons, Captain Lyon moved an amendment, to the Ad-dress-in-Reply in favour of Imperial preference without imposing fresh duties' on. foodstuffs, also in favour of the imposition of a moderate duty, not exceeding 10 per cent., to safeguard the stability of productive industries. ! Sir S. 0. Buckmaster, Solicitor-Gene-ral, stated that the Cabinet was convinced that no solution of the industrial unrest could be found in any change of the system which had made Britain rich and strong.

Mr Bonar* Law maintained that no fiscal system was applicable to all countries and all times. He was. not advocating protection, and never had done so,/but merely sought preference for their own people. The'moment the Conservative Party attained, power it would give the Dominions precisely what they asked for. ':■'

The amendment was rejected by 283 to 209.
