Yesterday, Anthony took part in a Westminster Hall debate to discuss allocations to UK-EU fisheries following the UK’s departure from the EU.
Anthony spoke of some opportunities and challenges presented by the Brexit deal, as well as the importance of the Specialised Committee on Fisheries.
Anthony also asked Minister Victoria Prentis to confirm when the next pillars of the £100 Million UK Seafood Fund will be launched, and was pleased to learn that details are expected next week. The infrastructure pillar will invest in ports, processing and aquaculture facilities for the fishing industry, while the skills and training pillar will be aimed at attracting new entrants into the fishing industry and encouraging employment opportunities. Both of these pillars will undoubtedly benefit the fishing communities of Brixham, Salcombe.
