the importation of goods for 1957,

1958 quotas to cover expected arrivals
in 1958 under their 1957 licences.

To ensure continuity of supplies,
steps are being taken to issue quotas
for 1958 at an early date and import-
ers should now submit applications
for importation in 1958.
Import licences against 1957 Token
Import Scheme quotas will be grant-
