According to Dispatch No. 55 from the American Consulate General in
Hamilton, Bermuda, dated June 3, 1948, the Director of Agriculture
has issued-a circular letter to local agents of all carriers which
presents three precautions which have been authorized by the Board
The first two precautions are practically identical with information
set forth in B.E.P.Q.--455, Revised. These relate to permits and
the certification of all plants, fresh, unfrozen vegetables and com-
mercial shipments of cut flowers.
*Precaution 3 states:- "The importation from the United States of
America of all earth or soil or plants in soil is prohibited, to
prevent the introduction of the Japanese beetle."
This pr.ecaation supersedes paragraph 2 of Article 13 on pages 2 and
3 of B.E.P.Q.-455, Revised, which permitted the entry of earth or
soil and plants in soil under certain conditions.
