The House of Lords Agriculture, Fisheries, Environment and Energy EU Sub-Committee launched a follow-up inquiry into the EU sugar regime. The inquiry will focus on sugar reform in the EU looking at it through the lens of the Common Agricultural Reform package. The findings of this short inquiry will feed into discussions in Brussels about sugar reform measures. Issues the Committee expect to cover during the short inquiry include:
the abolition of quotas and other market management measures by 2015, and whether there is a case for a transitional period;
the governance of inter-professional agreements; and
the impact on third country producers and potential mitigation that may be required, including why there has been variable disbursement of compensation already made available to mitigate the impact of the earlier reform.
