All the latest news from the Press Service of the European Parliament: votes, resolutions, debates, parliamentary committees and the plenary.

 

Gordon McGlone‘s insight:

Great News; concerted pressure and support from the public has changed EU fishing policy for the good.

 

Joan Edwards, The Wildlife Trusts Head of Living Seas said:-

This deal could not have been reached without a huge amount of public pressure. In particular, thanks to all of you who wrote to your MEP, signed petitions and supported the campaign. The increased pressure and spotlight that society placed on reform of the Common Fisheries Policy ensures that this policy can make a huge difference to our fish stocks and the sustainability of our seas.’

Public opinion counts, use your voice and vote – it what really counts.
