Industry Heading For Rocks Fishing Monthly Published:  04 December, 2002

A FISHERMEN’s spokesman has warned the British public to wake up to the dangers facing it from Brussels.

Robert Mitchell the Vice Chairman of the Fishermen’s Association, said:”It is becoming more and more apparent that the whole conservation issue is to allow the Commission to introduce emergency powers containing devastating and unviable quota and effort reductions with the intention of forcing British fishermen off the sea so as to complete the European integration process.

“If the Industry and the communities that depend on it are to stand any chance of survival, we must get across to the British public that our problems are directly caused by the politics of European Union integration.”
