PRIMAGE DUTY ON CATTLE SEMEN

Recent importations of bull semen have brought to notice the fact that this product when imported from the United Kingdom may be subject to 5 per cent primage duty under a tariff item that applies to a wide range of animal products not elsewhere provided

for in the Tariff.

As this is a product on which the imposition of primage duty is not appropriate it has been exempted by Order of the Minister made under Section 29 of the Customs Tariff. The Order has retrospective effect to 1 July 1971. Refund applications should be

lodged with the appropriate Collector of Customs i
