Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 4 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many vessels from (a) EU states and (b) non-EU were searched by HM Revenue and Customs in Northern Ireland ports in each of the last two years. (146942)

I have been asked to reply.

The number of vessels searched by HMRC in Northern Ireland in each of the last two years is two in the year ended 31 March 2006, and one in the year ended 31 March 2007. These vessels were all from non-EU states.
