MARGIN OF PROFIT REDUCTION ADVOCATED Parliamentary Reporter; WELLINGTON, this day. A reduction in profits allowed on children's garments was advocated by Mr. Denham (Goyt.. Invercargill) in a notice of question to the Minister of Industries and Commerce, Mr. Sullivan, in the House of Representatives to-day. Mr. Denham asked whether, in view of the fact that the 10 per cent additional sales tax for war purposes was not imposed on children's clothing, and in view of the vast difference in the price of children's clothing at the factory and when sold in the shops, the Minister would take steps to effect a considerable reduction in the profits allowed on children's garments, to both the wholesaler and retailer.
