Government to review UK’s global sugar tariff if imports flood market
Tuesday, June 29, 2021
Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs George Eustice said: “We have already got our UK global tariff with a significant provision for what is called an ATQ, open to the rest of the world. If market conditions require it, it is open to us to adjust that at any point in the future.” National Farmers Union sugar board chairman Michael Sly said: “I would encourage the Government to be open and transparent with the industry and growers about import levels under the ATQ, the sources of these imports, when it intends to review the quota levels and what criteria it would use to determine the ‘right level’ of quota.”Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
