16 million for sea cargo inspections


$16 million for sea cargo inspections

Customs will receive an additional $16 million over the next four years as part of the Rudd Government's election commitment to increase its container examination capacity at four key regional seaports, the Minister for Home Affairs Bob Debus said today.

Mr Debus said the funding, announced as part of the 2008-09 Federal Budget, would increase the number of ports where Customs has dedicated container examination capabilities to nine.
