HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c25W
Mr. Alton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how long it takes for a vehicle, proceeding to a continental port, for the purpose of storing a continental vessel, to clear the customs at ports of exit, especially Dover and Felixstowe.

Mr. Hayhoe

The time taken for Customs clearance of accompanied vehicles varies considerably, dependent upon the volume of traffic at the port, the provision of accurate documentation and the nature of the Customs control required for the goods carried.
