What is the quota to the United Kingdom on the shipment of lobsters for the year 1951? Is the quota based on cases or on dollar value?
Under the scheme of token shipments administered by the Department of Trade and Commerce, the 1951 quota for shipment of canned lobsters to the United Kingdom is fixed at forty per cent of the average annual value of exports of this commodity to the United Kingdom during the base period 1936, 1937 and 1938.
The 1951 quota amounts to $489,138.
