Afl to haul in west coast for crisis meetings
Afl chairman John O’Donnell has urged the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to hold a crisis meeting to address alleged price gouging at supermarkets in Western Australia, warning that hundreds of마사지 닷컴 thousands of families could lose money over the next four months.
