§ 14. Mr. WOMERSLEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade if the right to prohibit or restrict the importation of certain agricultural and horticultural produce is exercised by Italy or any European country?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
Italy, in common with most other European countries, takes measures to protect native animals and plants from disease, and for that purpose controls or prohibits the importation of certain agricultural and horticultural produce as occasion may require. Apart from this, the importation of certain produce of this kind, especially cereals and their derivatives, is controlled by special legislation in a few European countries. Complete information on this subject could not be given within the limits of an answer to a Parliamentary question, but I shall be happy to supply the hon. Member with more detailed information with regard to individual countries and products if he will let me know what he requires.
