Mr ROSEVEAR - Has the Minister for War Organization of Industry seen the large press advertisement by suiting firms offering for sale " world-famous Simpson English suits " at £13 13s. and £14 14s. each? As Australian clothing firms are allowed only a limited quantity of cloth, and have only a restricted opportunity to make civilian clothes, and as the Minister has begun an attack on luxury goods produced in Australia, what steps does he propose to take in order to prevent the importation and sale of goods such ns are described in this advertisement, in competition with Australian manufactures, in the now limited Australian market?
