System of control urged. Ballarat company criticised. Comment on undue profits. Fixation of maximum urged Melbourne tuesday. The fair profits commission has is sued its thirteenth report which will he considered by the state Cabinet at its next meeting. The report states that the commission completed a Long and careful inquiry info tile position of and profits made by Woollen Mills in j Victoria and finding hat in some cases undue profits have been Iliade and seeming Are still being made recon mends a future system of control of this Industry. As part of its inquiries the j commission Lias had two conferences of the Industry and has Given much consideration to the views of those representatives and to the. Particular matters urged by them. The Industry is strongly opposed to any control claiming that As Only a minority of the Are alleged to be making undue profits no control should be established. At one stage the representatives of the Mills wont so far Aslo say that objecting to the principle they refused to discuss the. Details of the pro posed control. This attitude they parti ally abandoned and they made some de finite suggestions. It. Was also urged to the commission that the Mills had done Good work for the tinny during the War and that the need for developing the Industry in Australia was so great that no control should be. Attempted. The cd Moision Lias Given full consideration to these contentions but is not Able to depart fro Iii the opinion that Clear eases of undue profit taking have been established in the Case of Scane Mills and that. Consequently m this Case As in others control must be established or the investigations of the commission would become almost nugatory in their result., on the other hand uni actual recommendations of Fie commission Are such As will enable the Industry to earn profits to Vicli should be an ample induce incur for tile investment of further Capi.

The Par id j Chi ref de by the figures generally.?i9,th6re�oro t that Ifor i the three find facial eats Riding t919, with particular reference to the subsequent half Venn in the Casie of one Mill. Profits of Mills. The report continues there Are some ten Mills in Victoria manufacturing Wool Len textiles. During the past three years they have As a whole made total net pro fits including transfers to reserves econ tin in capital averaging from2o per cent to 25 per cent. Two of them have made average total net profits on capital for the tame period of respectively 50 pet cent., and Over 45 per cent on capital. These Figi prime Facie show undue profits. But if the specially High profits were due to Large turnover and Low overhead charges j they might be regarded As a proper re j Ward. In both cases however though the turnover is above the average and the i p Rucoi image of Gross profit to turnover is i much above the average and is. In the opinion of the commission unreasonable. Tub Ballarat Woollen com Pany. There is one other Mill and perhaps two in which Tho profits have been in creased by too High a rate of Gross profit m turnover. Tho other Mills forming a majority have been making no More than fair profits. Of the two Mills just named a making undue profits one is a private a business i.e., not a Public com Pany hit its figures fur the past three years Diri l its notable As Are those of the second Mill which is a Public company and so can be freely named As the Ballarat Woollen and worsted company Ltd. Some further reference to this company Mai be made. It has had Many Vicissitudes in past years but of recent years has j been very prosperous. After making j All allowances for writing off capital in former years it cannot be said and the commission adopts the company is own figure that shareholders have put More than �60.000 original capital into the Busi Ness. In addition within the last few wars �30.000 of reserves have been capita listed acid issued in shares to Tho share holders. According to published state ments. At an interim meeting of Tho Corn any held a few weeks ago the following distribution of profits for the half year was made partly out of accumulated but previously undistributed profits namely dividend distributed half year. .�27,000 is me of shares As a result of writing up Plant Etc. Face value .�30,000, Market in lieu about �90.000. Apart from Tho hares the dividend is at the rate of 45 a. R Emit per annul on Tho capital sub i scribed he shareholders and about 90 per Inper annul on the capital used in he business As shown by the last annual balance Sheet. Ii commission thinks that such figures is lit foregoing compel action. The pro made if the immediate flu to is tested by the immediate past will enable the Industry on the average to make 18 per cent to 20 per cent total net profit a capital will permit the More Success Ful Mills to make More and will enable the less successful Mills to Mako a fair though not a High profit. The foregoing is apart from amortization whore the commission s proposals Mado in order to provide special reserves against special fall in present prices of buildings and machinery will permit of an additional pro it for amortization purposes equal to 13 l-3rd per cent on Tho actual Cost of build Ings and machinery erected or installed since 31st december 1916. Tho proposal is that for this purpose a maximum 10 per cent on the actual Cost May be included in manufacturing costs spread Over Tho turn Over for the year. Tho proposed maximum Gross profit of 33 l-3rd per cent. Of manufacturing Cost increases the 10 per cent to 13 l-3nl per cent. This will mean a varying addition to total net profit on capital. Dependent on the extent to which Tho buildings and machinery Are new and Tho relation of Tho capital sum up turnover. The Industry has expressed such Strong hostility to any control that the commission has to say explicitly that m its opinion a Tho control is called for in the control proposed leaves Tho Indus try one that should still Provo highly at Tractive to capital c but for Tho urgent need of extending the Industry Tho com Mission would have recommended substantially lower maximum rates. Recommendations. He commission recommends 1. That for All manufacturers of Woollen goods including mixtures of Wool and other mate oils except tops and yarns sold by Tho manufacturer As his finished product and except hosiery Tho maximum Gross rate of profit on the Sale or Supply of any article by tin manufacturer to a wholesale trader shall he either a 33 l-3rd per cent on the manufacturing or b 271 per cent on the manufacturing Cost together with a total sum equal to 9 per cent on a yearly basis and distributed Over Tho output for a year on the capital Valuo As shown in Tho last balance Sheet in Tho Vear 1919 of buildings and machinery used in thobu3i Ness and on Tho Cost of buildings and machinery since erected or installed.
