Sugar Regime

EDM number 1003 in 1994-95, proposed by Peter Thurnham on 20/04/1995.

That this House notes that sugar is a key commodity that is currently trading within the EU at around twice the world market price; is concerned that export of EU surpluses of sugar on the world market are harmful to third world producers; further notes that the European Commission's tinkering with the Sugar Regime is inadequate and will have little benefit for industrial sugar users or consumers, whether in the United Kingdom or in other EU member states; and calls upon the Government to support a further review of the Regime, leading to a fundamental reform in 1997-98, to enable production of sugar beet to move to more efficient producers, and to press for annual reductions in price.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
