Sugar: Quotas

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs when he expects to announce his decision on sugar quota levels. (185651)

We informed British Sugar on 6 February 2008 that the Rural Payments Agency has approved an application from the company for restructuring aid. This was based on the renunciation of 13.5 per cent. of its white sugar production quota, amounting to 165,000 tonnes, and the full dismantling of the York sugar factory.
