Sue Hayman responds to Fisheries Bill

Sue Hayman MP, Labour’s Shadow Environment Secretary, responding to the Government’s Fisheries Bill, said:

“It is vital that future fisheries management is put on a sound environmental footing.

“We will need to see how this bill delivers for coastal communities that have been left behind by Tory austerity as well as what the Bill has to offer for smaller fishing vessels and the devolved nations.

“Labour will be cutting through the rhetoric and drilling down into the detail of this bill to ensure that broad objectives are backed up with proper enforcement and resources.”
