Fisheries after Brexit

This is an audio recording of an IfG Live Event: Fisheries has been a major area of contention between the UK and EU during the Brexit process. Both parties are under pressure to reconcile their divergent positions and reach a fisheries agreement by July – but both admit that an agreement is unlikely. How important are fisheries to negotiations? What are the UK and EU positions? Can a deal can be struck? Wwhat are the UK’s priorities as an independent coastal state and how might thus vary across the nations of the UK?
Talking to Maddy Thimont Jack, Senior Researcher at the Institute for Government, are:

Theresa Villiers MP, Former Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

Deidre Brock MP, SNP spokesperson for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

Barrie Deas, Chief Executive of the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations

James Kane, Associate at the Institute for Government
