§ Mr. Colman
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, pursuant to her oral answer of 8 December 1999, Official Report, column 811, which products will be excluded when the EU offers tariff-free access for essentially all products to the least developed countries. 
§ Clare Short
The EU has not yet decided which products will be excluded from its offer of duty free access for essentially all exports from developing countries. The UK has called for duty free access for all imports for the least developed. We will be pressing for minimum exceptions to the EU scheme.
