Need For ‘More Deals’ Within Brexit Deal?


Fishermen of France are facing uncertainties with the new Brexit deal, notes worries mayor of major fishing port of France.

Even after the trade deal of Brexit, the fisherman of France face uncertainties, noted the “mayor of the major northern fishing port of Boulogne-sur-Mer”. The Prime Minister of Britain informed that as per the “last-ditch accord” the transition period of “five-and-half-year” with the EU fisheries were “reasonable”, as it is longer than the “three years” span requirement of Britain and yet shorter in comparison to the fourteen years’ time “originally” asked by the EU.
However, “Boulogne-sur-Mer Mayor”, Frederic Cuvillier finds the agreement to be “left much” in obscurity; in his words:
“Relief for our fishermen, but what will be the impact on stocks? Who, for example, will be handling the controls? And over what time?”
“The only certainty today is that we need to find, during the transition period, more deals within the deal.”
Moreover, the French politicians, “Loïg Chesnais-Girard and Herve Morin” echoed the views expressed by Cuvillier, while welcoming the avertion of “no-deal” Brexit in a joint statement and calling upon the Prime Minister of France, Jean Castex, for conducting a meeting to analyse the deal in more details.
The fishermen of France petitioned to French President, to not surrender even “an inch over fishing rights”. However the government stepped down from its “initial demands” in order to maintain the “status quo”. Furthermore, Reuters reported:
“French Seas Minister Annick Girardin issued a statement to say the government would set up financial measures to help French fishermen affected by the Brexit trade accord.
“There has also been discontent across the Channel, with Britain’s fishing industry expressing disappointment that the deal did not represent more of a reduction in the access that the European bloc currently has to British waters”.
