LEADER of Opposition Hon Matthew Wale has welcomed the advice by the Comptroller of Customs to increase compliance tests.
However, Hon Wale said whilst this must be appreciated, costs on business & inefficiencies this imposes on business adds to cost of living pressures to consumers.
This followed the notice published from a decision by the Comptroller for all Red Lane SADS to be transported to Henderson customs warehouse (Kings Warehouses 2&3).
The main reason is to assist Customs in conducting cargo examinations and storage of goods inside the customs controlled area.
He said the Comptroller must find another way that will not add unreasonable costs on businesses.
“Businesses are struggling and this will add more unreasonable costs that will be passed on to consumers in an already high cost of living crises,” Hon Wale said.
