COMMOhWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA


Importation of Potatoes for Consumption Prohibited

By an amendment of the Customs (Prohibited Imports) Regulations
--Statutory Rules 1938, No. 85, under the Customs Act 1901-1936--
published in the Commonwealth Gazette, August 25, 1938, the importa-
tion of potatoes for food purposes is now prohibited, except as fol-
lows:

(a) Intended for:

1. Use as ships' stores on overseas vessels, or
2. Shipment to an island in the Pacific Ocean;

(b) Entered for transshipment.

Consequently, the following item should be added to the summary
under the caption "IMPORTATION INTO THE CCIA10.V1T7EALTH PROHIBITED"

"POTATOES FOR CONSUMPTION: Importation prohibited except
when intended for use as ships' stores on overseas
vessels, or for shipment to an island in the Pacific
Ocean, or when entered for transshipment (Amendment to
Customs (Prohibited Imports) Regulations--Statutory
Rules 1938, No. 85)."
