Peter Aldous urges Prime Minister to confirm that Brexit will support renaissance of East Anglian fishing

26th March 2018

Peter Aldous raises local anger at Brexit implementation agreement and calls on the Prime Minister to confirm that Brexit will support a renaissance of East Anglian fishing and Lowestoft's fishing industry.

Brexit provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a renaissance of East Anglian fishing, although the provisions of the implementation agreement have created anger and some doubt about whether the Government share the ambition of the industry locally. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that her Government will work with and support East Anglian fishing communities, such as that in Lowestoft, as they work to revive this great industry?

I am happy to confirm that we will be working with those who are involved in the fishing industry throughout the United Kingdom to ensure that we can rebuild the industry, and that it will have a very good future.
