§ 83. Sir GEORGE GREENWOOD
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any feathers of wild birds, the importation of which was prohibited by proclamation on 23rd February, 1917, have been imported into this country 336 since the 48,346 lbs. weight of such feathers were imported in the months of March and April last; if so, will he say what was the weight of such feathers so imported; and why their importation was allowed?
During May feathers of the kind referred to were imported to the amount of 13,681 lbs. weight. They were admitted as being en route at the time of prohibition.
