In towns like Ramsgate, fishing is not just a crucial component of the local economy, but also a way of life. However, the <10m fishing industry - including the Ramsgate fleet - has been systematically dismantled by the EU's CFP policies. Now that Britain has voted to leave the European Union, this offers the UK Government the opportunity to repair 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 should aim to strike with the EU during withdrawal negotiations.
