Regional Advisory Councils For Fish Stocks

EDM number 995 in 2002-03, proposed by Alistair Carmichael on 01/04/2003.

That this House notes that despite it now being more than three months since the EU Fisheries Council decided to establish regional advisory councils to manage fish stocks, there are still no concrete proposals for the constitution of these councils; contrary to the dilatory approach of the commissioner to this with the disgraceful haste with which it acted to impose draconian and unjustified cuts in whitefish quotas on the UK fishing fleets; and calls on the European Commission to come forward with concrete proposals to establish regional advisory councils as a matter of urgency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
