Customs and Excise charges need to be applied in a fairer way. Their application need rethinking.

Why is this idea important?


There are occasions when customs and excise charges are being applied in appropriately. The clear original intention of such laws was to stop people importing cheap goods from abroad in large quantities and then reselling the items here and avoiding VAT. But they are being applied to single items plainly meant for personal use, and to things that one cannot be said to be avoiding paying VAT on in this country because they are items that cannot be bought in this country at all. This has involved may items being stopped in the post for long periods, and the held at the post office until a large charge is paid for which one receives no justification or proper explanation.
