Argos tax breaks call

THE Home Retail Group, owner of Argos and Homebase, has called on the British Government to help people on low pay.

Terry Duddy said that there needed to be tax breaks as Argos' sales of TVs, video games and iPods dropped by 20pc.

Argos' sales were down 8.6pc in the 13 weeks to August 27 while Homebase's sales were down 0.7pc.
