Volume 496: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer which Minister is responsible for representing the Government’s interest at the World Customs Organisation. (287992)

The World Customs Organization (WCO) is the only intergovernmental organisation with competence on Customs Issues. HM Revenue and Customs officials usually represent the UK’s interests at WCO. I am the Minister responsible for Customs policy, and I am accountable to Parliament for HMRC.
