HC Deb 28 July 1975 vol 896 c403W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he is taking to prevent the import of skins of rare animals from South America.

Mr. Denis Howell

The importation of the skins of a number of rare animals, some of them native to South America, is already prohibited or is permitted only under licence. Our import controls will be extended to cover a wider range of skins when we implement the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora later this year.
