National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations (NFFO) Trawler men need their own English Minister to protect their fishing rights


It was reported on the 23rd December 2016 that Fisheries Minister, George Eustice had announced that a chunk of England’s fishing quotas was going to be transferred to Scotland following the vote to leave the European Union (EU).

This would mean that the quota to catch 1,500 tonnes of fish had been removed from the Humberside-based Fish Producers Organisation and handed to Scottish authorities.

After hearing George Eustice’s decision, Eddie Bone, Campaign Director for the Campaign for an English Parliament stated

“Since 1998, the Campaign for an English Parliament has stated that the British government is treating the English badly in its attempt to placate Scottish nationalists. The English need to wake up to the fact that the British government will sell out English industries”.

He continued

“The Campaign for an English Parliament  supports the concerns highlighted by the  National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations (NFFO) when it pointed out that

Devolved administrations have their individual ministers to speak up for them but English industry has no such champion and we urging need one’.

Only English Ministers working within a Devolved administration can protect English jobs. It is clear the British won’t protect English industries. What industry in England will be sold out next to appease Scottish self-interest? Maybe yours!

We must defend English rights before English industry is completely destroyed and with it our children’s futures. Join our campaign and demand Ministers for English industries”.
