Import News: Labour To Keep High Clothing Tariffs
Import News from the Importers Institute
25 November 1999 - Labour Would Keep High Tariffs on Clothing
Tariffs on clothing and footwear are scheduled to reduce from 19% to 15% in July next year. If voters elect a Labour headed coalition on Saturday, those tariffs will remain at 19% for another five years, according to Labour's Finance spokesman Dr Michael Cullen.
The Alliance has a policy of imposing an additional tariff of 5% on all imports, except those originating in Australia. The Greens would like that tariff to be higher. Labour does not currently support those policies.
Further political commentary will be provided by a senior politician during our election night party in Auckland. For details, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.silva.co.nz/party.
