§ 52. Mr. Watkinson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why a C.D.3 form is required for the export of scientific specimens on an exchange basis to foreign learned and technical societies.
§ Sir S. Cripps
Where exports are subject to the provisions of the Exchange Control Act, the Customs must have evidence either that payment is being made by an approved method or that exportation without payment has been sanctioned. Form C.D.3 serves this purpose, and the permission required for the export of goods on an exchange basis to foreign learned and technical societies is indicated by the Bank of England by an endorsement on the form.
§ Mr. Watkinson
Does the Chancellor not think that this is a rather cumbersome 1002 method to cover the export of snakes to the Zoological Society of New York, when, as I understand, a C.D.3 is necessary for every exportation?
