Food: EU External Trade

Volume 491: debated on Monday 20 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs which countries have tariff-free access for (a) some and (b) all of their food product exports to the EU; and in respect of what quantities tariff-free access is allowed. (264785)

[holding answer 23 March 2009]: There are over 2,000 agricultural tariff lines in the European Union tariff schedule, each of which has a tariff that may differ (according to various concessionary arrangements) for approximately 200 countries. To list a country by tariff line breakdown of the tariff-free concessions would involve disproportionate cost.
