PLANT QKUARA1=TI1IE II ORT RESTRICTIONS

OF THE

UITLTED KINGDOM


This revised summary of the plant quarantine import restrictions of the
United Kingdom, ,-as they apply in particular to plants and plant products
from the United States, has been prepared for the information of nursery-
men, shippers of fresh fruit and vegct.blcs, plant quarantine officials,
and others interested in the uxportation of plaits .and plant products to
the United Kingdom.

It'was-'prepared by Juliet H. Carrington, Division of Plant ..uarantinea,
from the Importation of Plants Orders, 19h7 to 1953, and the General
Lenses issued thereunder, the Importation of Forest Trees (Prohibition)
Order, 1952, the Plants and Potatoes Irmporta.-ion Ordiiu.nces, 1951 and
1953 of the Island of Guernsey and General License pertaining thereto,
the. Pl.anits and Potatoes irmportation Order, ]19$3, and the Importation of
Plan'ats, Plant Seeds and Potatoes (Jersey) Order, 19473 The summiray was
reviewed by iAr. W. C. Moore, Director, Plant Pathologyr Laboratory of the
Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. It was subsequently revised
slightly to take into account the importation of Plants (General License)
(Amendment) Order 1953, for England and WJalos.

The information contained in t#ais 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
of the Eppropriate orders, and it is not to be interpreted' as legally
authoritative. The ori. inal orders should be consulted for the exact
texts.
