BAA asks USTR for clarification on U.S.-Canada trade accord.

The Brewer's Association of America has called for a clarification from the U.S. Trade Representative on issues that the association says were not resolved in the recent U.S.-Canada trade accord.

According to an article in the most recent BAA newsletter, "The Trade Representatives of both the U.S. and Canada have made much of the so-called accord reached by the two countries rising out of the controversy from GATT I and II."

However, the BAA says, "No resolution was arrived at concerning GATT Beer II's holding that the small brewer tax differential in the U.S. was in violation of the Treaty.

The BAA statement also noted: "There was no resolution on Canada's claim that the three-tier system of distribution was a non-tariff trade barrier."
