British Unionists
Divide on Question
of Taxing 'Poods
LONDON, Jan. 8. Tho project of Impos
ing tax en on food Imported Into the
British Isles, ptft forward by some of the
leaders of tho opposition In the House of
Commons, has created such hopeless dis
sensions In the unionist patty as to
render almost certain, It Is said, the n
tentloti of power by the llbeml govern
ment for the two years necessary to
overcome tho resistance of the House of
Lords to the homo rule bill.
On the other hand, thn wrnmrles amom:
the unionists afford some temptation to 1
tho government to mako an appeal to the
country on the chance of coming back to
power with an Increased majority.
This movo Is n course of action which
has little likelihood of bring sanctioned by
tho members of Jho Irish nationalist
party because It would delay .the passage
of the home rule bill and would even risk
tho return of the unionists to office, thU3
shelving home rule altogether.
On the whole, therefore, tho chances
now Hppear to be that the ministers will
decide against a dissolution of Parliament
and will push on their legislative pro
gram, especially a David Lloyd-George,
tho t-hancellor of the exchequer, has
practically overcome his difficulties wltu
the medical profession and has secured
almost enough doctors to work the new
Insurance act.
According to one of the papers i3 mem
bers of the unionist party In tho House
of Commons liaVo now abandoned tho
Idea of taxing food, leaving only 171 ad
vocates dt food taxes, under the loader
ship of Austen Chamberlain. If this esti
mate Is' a correct one, the recent cam
paign 'against food taxes has been ex
traordinarily successful and Andrew
Bonar Law's position as leader of the
unionist party has become somewhat dif
ficult, as ho publicly advocates a policy
Abandoned by the bulk of his party.
