asked the Minister for Trade if he will formulate a code of practice to protect consumers from purchasing sub standard footwear for their children which may be injurious to their health.

I am very conscious of the damage which can be done to children's feet from ill-fitting shoes. I am pleased to see that the Footwear Distributors Federation has adopted a code which takes account of these dangers, and I have placed copies of the code in the Library.
