(1)If at any time the Ministry of Agriculture is satisfied with respect to animals of any non-indigenous mammalian species that by reason of their destructive habits it is desirable to prohibit or control the importation or keeping of them and to destroy any which may be at large, the said Ministry may make with respect to animals of that species any such order as the said Ministry is empowered by sub-section (1) of section one of this Act to make with respect to musk rats, and thereupon all the provisions of this Act shall apply in relation to animals of that species as they apply in relation to musk rats, subject, however, to such exceptions and modifications, if any, as may be specified in the order:

Provided that, notwithstanding anything in sub-section (2) of section one of this Act, an order made under this section shall be of no effect until a resolution approving it has been passed by each House of Parliament.
