AN OVERHAUL of European Union policy to boost trade among the world's poorest countries is called for today by the Lords' European Communities committee, writes Patricia Wynn Davies.

It says in a report that trying to helping developing countries by allowing tariff-free exports to the EU is failing to help the poorest. It calls for 'technical assistance and aid to the export regimes of developing countries'.
