Overview

Oxfam welcomes the UK Government’s support for the EC’s proposal to improve access to the EU market for all products, except armaments, exported from the world’s 48 poorest countries, dubbed the ‘Everything But Arms’ (EBA) proposal. We dispute the claims of the powerful lobby against the proposal to include sugar, launched by the National Farmers’ Union and the multinational sugar industry, who have labelled it a threat to UK sugar beet growers. Research commissioned by Oxfam from the Institute of Development Studies shows that their claims are massively over-stated.
