Britain is pursuing EU fisheries deal based on Norway arrangement - PM's spokesman

Wed, 16th Sep 2020 11:59

LONDON, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Britain is pursuing a deal on
fisheries with the European Union that is based on the bloc's
arrangement with Norway, a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris
Johnson said on Wednesday after two EU sources told Reuters
London had offered tentative concessions.

"Our position on fisheries has been consistent throughout,"
the spokesman told reporters when asked whether Britain had made
concessions.

"We've been clear that we won't accept any proposals which
compromise our sovereignty of our own fishing waters ... The
draft UK-EU fisheries framework agreement is based on the
bilateral arrangement with Norway that the EU already has, that
continues to be our approach."
