‘Worst nightmare’ Fury as Britain set to KEEP ‘hated’ EU fishing rules beyond March 2019

26 Oct

Theresa May has pledged to pursue a two-year transitional period “on current terms” and the EU is likely to insist the UK does remain within its fishing policy during that period. 

And some EU countries, including Germany and France, are already making noises about demanding permanent access for their vessels to British waters as part of any future trade deal. 

The CFP, which allows EU vessels access to UK fishing grounds and imposes strict quotas, is despised by many British trawler men who blame it for decimating what was once a national industry. 

And Ukip MEP Mike Hookem, whose Yorkshire and the Humber constituency includes the major shipping port of Grimsby, said any such delay in scrapping the CFP risks diluting one of the major economic benefits of Brexit.
