NOTICE OF PERMIT REQUIREMENT FOR THE ENTRY
It has been determined by the Secretary of Agriculture that Algaonema canes
or cuttings, ostensibly imported for medicinal purposes, are being used rather
extensively for propagation. These canes at present are admitted without
inspection in aecordanc:e with the provisions of regulation 2 of the Rules and
Regulationn. supplemental to Quarantine No. 37. Since these canes are not
proniptly converted into medicine and therefore, 'without inspection, constitute
a pest risk, their further entry shall ine.t the requirements governing the im-
portation of plants under special permit.
Notice is therefore hereby given that, in acordance with the proviso of regu-
lation 2, of the Rules and Regulations suppldemental to Notice of Quarantine
No. 37. all specie- and varieties of Alain.-ma inay blie imported from any
foreign country and locality, on and after June 1, 1930, only under special
permit and( upon compliance with the provisions of regulation 14 of the regula-
tions referred to above.
