Peter Aldous calls on Government to back local and UK businesses on overseas territories fishing licences

27th March 2018

Peter Aldous calls on the Government to back local and UK businesses when the fishing licences in the UK overseas territories come up for bidding.

T6. As fishing licences in the UK overseas territories come up for bidding, will my right hon. Friend make a presumption in favour of local and UK businesses, which is so important both for sustainable fishing and for maximising the economic benefits to such communities? [904612]

Fisheries licensing is generally a matter for the Governments of the individual territories; only in the specific case of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands does the Secretary of State give advice on licensing in respect of foreign policy. In the last round, three of the six licences were given to overseas territories.
