HC Deb 03 November 1919 vol 120 c1091
2. Colonel YATE

asked the President of the Board of Trade when it is intended to introduce legislation to put a stop to the importation into the United Kingdom of wild birds' plumage, the export of which has been prohibited from other portions of the British Empire?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Auckland Geddes)

A Bill is in draft to deal with this matter, but, in view of the pressure of Parliamentary business, I am afraid that I cannot say when it will be introduced.
