Banff & Buchan MP Re-Elected Vice-Chair of Parliamentary Fisheries Group

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

Banff & Buchan MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford has been re-elected as a Vice-Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Fisheries Group.

The meeting, held today in the House of Commons, was attended by MPs from a range of constituencies with fishing interests. It was also attended by UK Government Fisheries Minister George Eustice MP who was questioned on a range of issues by the Banff & Buchan MP.

Commenting, Eilidh Whiteford said:

“I took the opportunity to press the Minister on the implementation of the ban on discards, which comes into effect for the pelagic fleet next January. It’s vitally important that Scottish fishermen are subject to the same compliance measures as the non-EU vessels that fish in our waters. It would be completely unacceptable if Scottish vessels were to be fishing alongside Norwegian vessels which are subject to different rules.”
