Reacting to the Prime Minister’s announcement of a General Election on June 8th, chief executive of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation Bertie Armstrong said: “The priority of the fishing industry remains crystal clear – we must exit the hugely damaging Common Fisheries Policy and restore control of UK waters.
“Fishermen in all our coastal communities will expect the political parties contesting the election to commit to this route and free us from the present unfair and harmful constraints on their right to make a living from the sea.”
