§ 1. Colonel YATE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, considering that no steps have been taken to prevent the import of wild birds' plumage, the export of which is prohibited in various portions of the British Empire, he will put a stop to the issue of licences by the Paris branch of the Department of Import Restrictions pending final settlement of the matter?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Bridgeman)
The licensing of goods of French origin in Paris is the result of an agreement concluded with the French Government in August, 1917 If any modifications are made in this agreement the hon. Member's suggestion will be considered.
