Motion: Illegal Fuel Smuggling and Laundering
That this Assembly notes with concern the statistics which reveal that only four custodial sentences have been handed down to people involved in fuel smuggling or laundering in the past ten years; further notes that the estimated annual cost of these practices to the Exchequer is in excess of £200 million; and calls on the Minister of Justice to ensure that the next Justice Bill incorporates tougher sentences and penalties to deal with illegal operators.
