Mr. Hoyle: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will hold discussions with the National Farmers Union on his policy for the EU to remove import tariffs on food and abolish the Common Agricultural Policy. 
It is unacceptable, that at a time of significant food price inflation, the EU continues to apply very high import tariffs to many agricultural commodities. The Commission should give urgent consideration to extending the suspension of import tariffs that apply to other agricultural commodities
Treasury Ministers and officials have discussions with a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sectors as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Governments practice to provide details of all such discussions.
