Formatted abstract Protecting domestic industries from competing imports has long been the trade policy of many nations. A number of negative side-effects have been established. with the advent of trade negotiations protection has become a real issue in the world today. The negative effects of protection are being realised by the world's trading nations as numerous negotiations go on to free up trade.

This thesis will discuss the pros and cons of protection with particular reference to Australia's TCF industries. These industries are heavily protected to maintain their competiveness against competing imports. The aim of this thesis is to establish the effects on welfare of the current levels of protection for the TCF industries in Australia in the context of a simultaneous equation model. The thesis establishes a much improved model of consumption expenditure of TCF in Australia.
