In towns like Ramsgate fishing is not just a crucial component of the local economy but a way of life. However, the <10m fishing industry - including the Ramsgate fleet - has been systematically dismantled by the EU's CFP policies. Britain has now voted to leave the European Union. Brexit now offers the UK Government the opportunity repair some of the damage done to Britain's small fishermen.
Later, this year I will be publishing a report into what sort of deal the UK Government ought to strike with EU during our withdrawal.
