HC Deb 11 October 1976 vol 917 cc10-1W
Mr. Mather

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he intends to implement the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora by applying conventional controls to certain readily recognisable skins of wild animals.

Mr. Marks

The convention was implemented in the United Kingdom on 1st January 1976. What we then regarded as all the readily recognisable skins of species of animals listed in the convention were brought under control. However, we hope, with experience, to overcome the recognisability problems in other cases.
