HC Deb 12 February 1976 vol 905 cc393-4W
Mrs. Wise

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what powers he has to control the export and import of furs and skins of endangered species.

Mr. Deakins

The Import, Export and Customs Powers (Defence) Act 1939 provides such powers, but my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment proposes to take more specific powers under the Endangered Species (Import and Export) Bill which is being introduced in the House of Lords on 12th February.
