STOCKHOLM - Fashion giant H&M is opposing the Swedish government's proposals to introduce a tax on potentially harmful chemicals in clothing and shoes.

The Swedish company says the proposed tax would not improve workers' health, the environment or product safety while forcing it to carry out costly tests for substances it already knew were not in its products.

It would include a default tax of 40 SEK (US$4) per kilogram of a product's weight, with tax reductions of up to 95 per cent for those that do not contain any harmful chemicals.
