The Western Isles branch of the Scottish Conservative Party has unanimously expressed its “dismay and opposition” to the proposal which advocates the extension of the Common Fisheries Policy during the transitional period after the United Kingdom leaves the EU next year.

The UK government's agreed to hand back control of fishing grounds to the EU on Brexit day in March 2019.

That means obeying the despised quotas for 21 months after leaving the European Union.

The UK will not even have a vote at fisheries negotiations, giving it even less control than at present.

The local Conservative association also expressed its “support and solidarity” with the 13 Scottish Conservative MPs who expressed their dissatisfaction to the Prime Minister on the issue.
