MR. W. BRACE, M.P., AND THE FISCAL REFORM DEBATE. HIS MAIDEN SPEECH IN PARLIAMENT. Mr W. Brace, M.P. for South Glamorgan, was amongst the Welsh members who took part in the debate on Fiscal Reform in the House of Commons this week, and on Monday night the hon. member delivered his maiden speech in Parliament. Mr Brace said the real touchstone of a question of this kind must be that of results. He came there with no special interest to preserve or protect, and if he thought Retaliation or Protection would advance the standard of living and would increase the competitive power of our industries be would not hesitate to support either policy. But*it was because he was convinced that neither could touch the great root of the economic problems that the House had to deal with that he stood there pledged to support Free Trade. The question of cheap food must always be a great factor to be considered by the Government of this country, and the Board of Trade returns for the four years were a wonderful demonstration of the great advantages we enjoyed over all other countries in our fiscal system. There must be some sound fundamental cause for the fact that bad harvests, gambling, or cornering in wheat never seriously increased the price of bread in this country. The House of Commons would be tempting Providence if they allowed the present fiscal system be to superseded by any other system. If Germany were to retaliate on us by putting a heavy tax on the coal South Wales sent to that country the result would be a great deal of unemployment and short time at the collieries. ¡
