What About Knickers Mr Mallard?
It's great that bras have been stripped of their tariff but knickers should come down too, says National MP Annabel Young.
Ms Young was responding to the announcement by Acting Commerce Minister Trevor Mallard today that import tariffs would be removed on bras.
"Doesn't Mr Mallard understand girlie stuff?
"Females don't just wear bras. They also wear knickers and sometimes camisoles and slips. This exemption discriminates against those females who want to purchase a matching set.
"Perhaps Mr Mallard should seek advice from his female colleagues.
"Does Mr Mallard seriously want to save females money on underwear or is he just paying them lip service?" Ms Young said.
