§ Dr. ADDISON
All imported plants, trees, and shrubs which fall within the scope of the Destructive Insects and Pests Order of 1922, are examined by inspectors of my Department unless they are accompanied by an official health certificate. Check inspections of certi- 347 fied consignments are carried out from time to time. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
§ Major GEORGE DAVIES
Is that inspection extended to any soil there may be round the roots of such plants and shrubs?
