HL Deb 25 May 1937 vol 105 c222

Page 2, line 29, at end insert: (" (5) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, where it is shown to the satisfaction of the Commissioners of Customs and Excise that any live fish or eggs of fish, of which the importation or bringing into Great Britain is prohibited or restricted by this section, are being imported or brought solely with a view to the re-exportation thereof after transit through Great Britain or by way of transhipment, the Commissioners may, subject to such conditions as they think fit to impose for securing the re-exportation of the goods, allow the fish or eggs of fish to be imported or brought as if the prohibition or restriction did not apply thereto.")


My Lords, this Amendment is intended to facilitate the transhipment of live fish or eggs of fish which are imported into this country and which subsequently may be re-exported. The Amendment was suggested by the Customs Department. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment—(The Earl of Feversham.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
