  • Description

    An anti-free trade film from the Conservative and Unionist Film Association. The effects of free trade are seen on the steel industry - unemployment, idle factories - and on other industries such as coal mining, limestone quarrying and the railway industry. A policy of safeguarding is urged to protect British industry and trade. This film was part of the Britain Under National Government series. Other areas considered were the improvement in the general economy and empire trade as well as the improvement in the agricultural industry and further calls for safeguarding.
