§ Mr. Mather
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he intends to implement the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species 11W 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.
