Governor visits HM Customs
The Governor, Vice Admiral Sir David Steel, recently visited Customs House and met the Collector of Customs John Rodriguez and his senior staff.
Sir David was briefed by the Collector on the complexity and diversity of the work of HM Customs and the challenges they face.
This was followed by engagement with the different staff members to learn about their particular day-to-day duties.
“We were honoured to receive His Excellency at Customs House,” Mr Rodriguez said.
“Sir David was keen to learn about our roles as a law enforcement agency and our equally important function to provide an efficient and effective revenue collection service.”
“I have extended a further invitation to him to visit some of our outstations so that he may further observe the valuable contribution and specialist knowledge of our officers in the field.”
