How do the SNP plan to ensure that Scotland’s fishermen get a fair deal in Europe?
We will continue to demand the scrapping or fundamental reform of the CFP and Scottish control of fisheries – and oppose any attempt to treat the fishing industry as a Brexit bargaining chip.
We will also oppose any attempt by the UK government to treat the fishing industry as a bargaining chip. Having sold out fishing as ‘expendable’ on the way into the EU, a Tory government must not be allowed to betray it again on the way out.
Fishing is fully devolved and we will expect all powers over policy to be repatriated to Scotland when the UK leaves the EU.
