UK: Joyce Quin calls for views on EU sugar reform
Joyce Quin, Agriculture Minister of State has welcomed the prospect of reform of the EU sugar regime. Speaking in London today, Ms Quin said: "The EU sugar regime is a complex system which affects many different interests. Reform of the regime is long overdue, and I welcome the chance to start bringing the arrangements more into line with market realities. "While it is good that the Commission has come forward with proposals, they are disappointingly modest, given the substantial economic distortions this regime creates. In the Brussels negotiations, UK representatives will be pressing the case for a more substantial reform." She said that in addition, the Ministry is also writing to UK interests to invite their views on the proposals, so that they can be taken into account in drawing up the UK negotiating line.
