§ 15. Sir W. BYLES
asked whether, during the last three years, 1,865,431 lbs. weight of feathers, exclusive of ostrich 1668 feathers, have been imported into this country; and whether, having regard to the shortage of tonnage and its effect on our food supply, these imports of luxuries will be stopped?
The importation of feathers (ornamental and down) is now covered by the Prohibition of Import (No. 14) Proclamation established on Friday last.
