Customs And Excise Office On The West Coast Of Scotland

EDM number 1266 in 1994-95, proposed by Calum Macdonald on 19/06/1995.

That this House expresses its great concern about the proposed closures of Customs and Excise offices at Stornoway, Campbeltown, Fort William, Islay, Newtonstewart, Wick, Kirkwall and Lerwick; believes that such closures would lead, inevitably, to an increase in the smuggling of illegal drugs on the West Coast; deplores the hypocrisy of the Government in calling for a campaign against illegal drugs while closing down offices and making redundant the staff who are in the front-line against drug-smuggling; and demands that the Government call an immediate halt to the proposed closures.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
