Commons defeat for SNP

An SNP-led bid to return responsibility for fisheries and marine conservation to national control was defeated in Westminster after a debate which secured the cross-party backing of 175 MPs.

Mr Rumbles MSP (LD) said “The EU Treaty proposed no changes to competence over fisheries. Marine conservation has always been an exclusive competence of the European Union.” and that “The SNP must stop using fishing as a political tool and get on with the job of supporting and growing the industry.”

He added “Ministers would also be well advised to remember that it is constitutionally impossible just to walk away from the CFP.”
