Therese welcomes Fisheries White Paper

Therese has welcomed the publication of the Government's White Paper on the future of Britain's fisheries policy.

Today the Government has set out its plans to promote a more competitive, profitable and sustainable fishing industry across the whole of the UK, setting a gold standard for sustainable fishing around the world.

Therese said: "One of the benefits of leaving the EU is having a fisheries policy that will boost our fishing industry. for the first time in 40 years access to UK waters will be under our control and for the benefit of British fishermen, especially the under 10 fishing fleet along the Suffolk coast. I am sure this will be highly welcomed and I encourage local fishermen to give their views by September 10th.

"We are committed to working closely with our partners to manage shared stocks in a sustainable way and share fishing opportunities."

Therese added: "We will continue to work closely with other nations on ensuring fishing has a sustainable and profitable future.
