PLANT UA-ARTI1, IMPORT RESTRICTION'S

OF THE

BRITISH COLONY Ai'D PROTECTORATE OF SIERRA LEO17


This sumary of the plant-quarantine import restrictions of
the British Colony and Protectorate of Sierra Leone has been
prepared for the information of nurserymen, plant quarantine
officials, and others interested in the exportation of plants
and plant products to that Colony.

It was prepared by Harry B. Shaw, Plant quarantine Inspector,
in Charge of Foreign Service Information, Division of Foreign
Plant Quarantines, from the original text of the Destructive Pests
Ordinance, 1924, revision of 1925, and Orders promulgated thereunder,
and reviewed by the Director of Agriculture of Sierra Leone.

The information contained in this circular is believed to
be correct and complete up to the time of preparation, but it is
not intended to be used independently of, nor as a substitute for,
the original texts, and it is not to be interpreted as legally
authoritative.
