STOP BETRAYAL OF FISHERMEN: Petition Nearly Half Way To 100k
British fishermen are in serious danger of being betrayed during the Brexit negotiations as we have seen over the last few days. Donald Tusk, President of the European Council has demanded “reciprocal access” to Britain’s fishing waters be “maintained”.
It is clear that the government needs to be held to account on this issue. You may remember that some time ago, Mike Hookem MEP, launched a petition to stop the Common Fisheries Policy being incorporated into British law. Currently, that petition has 47k signatures which means it is very nearly half-way to the 100k necessary to be considered for a Parliamentary debate.
The petition expires on May 3rd so time is running out to push its support over the amount needed to force a Parliamentary debate on this crucial issue and give MP’s the chance to hold the government to account and ensure it does not betray our fishermen.
You can sign the petition here. Please do get behind this campaign and ensure Parliament is forced to take this issue seriously.
