IMPORTS IN 1956 UNDER 1955 LICENCES.

Importers are hereby notified that no further licences will be issued for the importation of
goods for 1955, except in special circumstances.

To ensure continuity of supplies, steps are being taken to issue quotas for 1956 immediately,
and importers may submit applications for importation in 1956.

Import licences against 1955 Token Import Scheme quotas will be granted up to the 31st
