The House of Representatives was yesterday called on to fix an error which resulted in custom duties being applied to certain items.

The items include goods used by a licensed hotel or resort cottages and certain kinds of corn.

Finance Minister Dr Peter Phillips explained that a five per cent custom duty was inadvertently imposed on the items.

Yesterday, he moved a resolution in the parliament to correct the mistake.
The new zero rate will take effect on January 1, 2014.
