HC Deb 06 May 1982 vol 23 c125W
26. Mr. Charles Morris

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what proportion of sugar from the African, Caribbean and Pacific countries involved in the sugar protocol of the Lomé convention has been exported on to the world market during the last five years.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

The last five years for which full statistics are available are 1976–1980. During that period on average about 36 per cent. of the sugar exports of the countries involved in the sugar protocol to the Lomé convention were sent to destinations other than the European Community.
