§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what Customs and Excise controls are exercised on the entry of aircraft or warships.
§ Sir John Cope
I have been asked to reply.
Crew and any passengers on military aircraft and naval vessels declare goods as required and pay any charges due. Declarations are also provided of any cargo and stores. Customs and Excise perform selective anti-smuggling checks in conjunction with the relevant naval or military body.
