I do not know whether the hon. Member for East Dorset (Mr. Hall-Caine) desires to have the Isle of Man included or excluded from this Bill, or whether he wishes the Isle of Man to be flooded with foreign goods. It appears to me that the Government desire to flood the Isle of Man with foreign goods, and I think that is a scandal. Practically what is being done by this Bill is that the Government are cutting the Isle of Man out of the British Empire, and that is an outrage in relation to a country which has such brilliant traditions, literary and otherwise, as the Isle of Man.
