§ 67. Mr. MATHERS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will furnish particulars of the conditions laid down for the granting of permits to allow of the importation of plumage normally prohibited from entering this country under the Importation of Plumage (Prohibition) Act, 1921; and for what period such permits are made available?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Dr. Burgin)
Licences to import plumage for the restricted purposes stated in Section 2 (4) of the Act are granted subject to the conditions that they are not transferable and may be revoked at any time by the Board of Trade without reason given. The period of validity is usually limited to three months, but certain permits, for instance, to museums, may be granted for longer periods.
