Is May selling fishermen down the river?

Following the announcement of the Brexit White Paper, North East MEP Jonathan Arnott said ”As a region with plenty of coastline and a huge fishing tradition, many people in the North East will have considerable unease about the White Paper on Brexit published today.

“When we leave the European Union, we should insist that we regain full control of our fishing stocks as the UK has a huge proportion of the EU’s fish. We can rebuild our once-great fishing fleet, but the 77-page White Paper only provides one paragraph of weasel words on fishing.

“Brexit is a tremendous opportunity to create jobs in the fishing industry; we need assurances from our government that it will not once again let our fishermen down in the way that they’ve been let down every year since 1972.,” said Mr Arnott, UKIP Euro-MP.
