Customs: Justice policy spokesperson for the Conservative Party, Sveinung Stensland, expresses concern about the situation in the Customs Agency and especially about the possibility of closing down important customs offices, including the customs office in Haugesund. NRK reports this.

He points out to the channel Haugesund customs office’s important responsibility for controlling the port of Karmsund, and mentions that Haugesund airport Karmøy is among the nine largest in Norway for foreign traffic.

Stensland plans to raise the matter in the Storting’s Question Time and asks Finance Minister Trygve Slagsvold Vedum about any plans to strengthen the Customs Agency, writes NRK.
