    It is well known that the decision to seek membership of the E.E.C. will involve the eventual abandonment of Ireland’s existing tariff structure, the adoption of free trade vis-a-vis the other membercountries in the E.E.C. and the replacement of existing tariffs on imports from the rest of the non-E.E.C, world by the common tariff structure adopted by the E.E.C. as a whole. The broad implications of this aspect of membership of the E.E.C. are well enough understood; essentially they reduce to the proposition that (subject to any derogations to the Treaty of Rome which Ireland may manage to persuade the other signatories to permit) the protection of indigenous industries from European competition will cease. To the extent that the common E.E.C. tariff is lower than the existing Irish tariff, protection against competition from the rest of the world will also be reduced.
