    Article metrics

    Abstract

    AS the result of a report by the Association of British Zoologists, the Council of the British Association in February 1931 appointed a committee to consider action with the view of the amelioration of the customs regulations affecting the importation of scientific specimens and apparatus. Following upon discussion between officers of the Association and the Custom House authorities, the latter have most kindly supplied the Association with a memorandum on the reliefs from customs duties on scientific instruments and cinematograph films, and from the import prohibitions on plumage likely to be of use to scientific workers, together with a note on procedure in respect of the importation of scientific specimens preserved in spirit.
