Kerr of Montreal, manager of the for- eign department of the Cana- dian Pacific Express Depart- ment: "Ship as soon as pos- sible." The last steamship connections for jniaranteed European delivery by Christ- mas leave Montreal on Novem- ber 29. he added. He pointed out that, gift pack- ages forwarded by express over- seas must not exceed 22 pounds jross weight. Provided the value >f a gift parcel does not exceed. no export permit will be re- quired. Mr. Kerr said that corrugated cartons and heavy paper are the best materials to use when wrap- ping parcels for overseas ship- ment. No fowl, either raw or cooked and including turkey, can be ship- ped into the United Kingdom this year, Mr. Kerr stated, as the Brit- ish government has banned the import, of fowls into the nation to prevent the spread of fowl pest.
