Voters Support Boris’s New “Requirement” For EU Fishermen Wanting To Fish In UK Waters

EU vessels hoping to fish in UK waters once the transition period expires will soon have to abide by the governments new “requirements”, according to the Express.

The British government is adamant that once the transitional period is over the UK will become an independent coastal state, in complete control of her fishing waters.

Despite no longer being a member of the EU, European fishermen are still allowed to fish in UK waters under the terms of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

According to a report in the Daily Express, the government is set to make it a requirement for EU vessels fishing in UK waters to be granted a licence to do so. This will then be reviewed and renewed annually.

This is outlined in the new Fisheries Bill which will ensure the UK’s involvement in the CFP ends in 2021.

Environment Secretary Theresa Villiers said: “This new Fisheries Bill takes back control of our waters, enabling the UK to create a sustainable, profitable fishing industry for our coastal communities, whilst securing the long term health of British fisheries.

“Leaving the EU’s failed Common Fisheries Policy is one of the most important benefits of Brexit. It means we can create a fairer system which will allow marine habitats to thrive, with new powers to support our fishing sector and conserve our wonderful Blue Belt at home and abroad.”

The British government wants to rebuild the UK’s fishing fleet and ensure that whatever deal with the EU is struck, British fishermen are put first.

One voter expressed their support for the new requirement on the Express website saying: “That’s excellent news. I have been worried about this.”

Another added: “If they are to be allowed to fish our waters in some licencing scheme, they must be forced to land the fish in the UK for processing”

And: “It is encouraging news that these measures are being included in this Fisheries Bill as it confirms that the government realises the importance of the fishing issue. The EU can be under no illusion now that the UK is determined to be completely sovereign and will not tolerate the EU imposing it’s rules and regulations on us.”
