Ad ban proposal falls foul of watchdog

Jan 17, 2013 (The Age - ABIX via COMTEX) -- The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission has indicated that it will reject a proposal that would stop retailers advertising discounts on many electrical goods. Narta International wants to be allowed to set a minimum advertising price for its 30 members in Australasia. The regulator's draft decision, issued on 17 January 2013, raised concerns about reduced competition and higher prices for consumers.
