Survival and level playing fields

THE UK Government today failed to show commitment to the survival of the UK fishing industry according to Barrie Deas, the chief executive of the NFFO as Mr Shaw said no to de minimus aid for the UK fishing fleet to help offset fuel costs.

Bertie Armstrong also criticised Mr Shaw who claimed the UK didn’t have the resources to pay out de minimus aid. All parties agree it would not solve the industry’s problems anyway.

The commercial representatives agreed aid would have signaled a Government commitment to ensure the survival of the fishing industry and that it was important to have a level playing field in aid terms across Europe and the UK.
