asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what loss of jobs within the port of Humber would be caused by the proposal of the Board of Customs and Excise to allocate management responsibility for that port to inland centres; and why the proposal entails transfer to two such centres rather than one.

The Board of Customs and Excise estimates that about 35 posts in the existing administrative offices in Hull would be saved. The board will take all reasonable steps to avoid compulsory redundancy. The proposed transfer of management responsibilty for the Department's work in the port of Humber to two centres rather than one is to achieve a more balanced management structure in the new collections.
