section 204 of the Agricultural Act of 1956, as amended (7 U.S.C. 
1854); Uruguay Round Agreements Act.

    In response to a special request by the Government of Pakistan, the 
U.S. Government has decided to restore 346,483 numbers to the charges 
to the 1995 limit for Category 361, and to deduct this same quantity 
from the charges to the 1996 limit for Category 361. The net result of

Category 361 will be reduced by 116,966 numbers.
    A description of the textile and apparel categories in terms of HTS 
numbers is available in the CORRELATION: Textile and Apparel Categories 
with the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (see Federal 
Register notice 60 FR 65299, published on December 19, 1995). Also see 
60 FR 9014, published on February 16, 1995; and 60 FR 62393, published 
on December 6, 1995.
    The letter to the Commissioner of Customs and the actions taken 
pursuant to it are not designed to implement all of the provisions of 
the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and the Uruguay Round Agreement on
