WHITEFORD CONDEMNS ‘IRRESPONSIBLE’ BBC PROGRAMME

Wednesday, 27 January 2010

SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford has condemned the BBC for screening a programme titled “Britain’s Really Disgusting Food: Fish” which presented a highly misleading and biased view of the fishing industry, when the reality is that Scottish fishermen, backed by the SNP Government, have been leading European efforts to conserve North Sea and west coast fish stocks.

Commenting, Eilidh Whiteford said:

"The programme completely ignores the efforts of the Scottish fishing industry to ensure the sustainability of our fisheries. The Scottish fleet has been at the forefront of pioneering conservation measures, and we are seeing positive results.

“It's totally irresponsible of the BBC to peddle such one-sided nonsense as telling people not to eat haddock, when it is healthy, nutritious food from well-managed stocks."
