The Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, my hon. Friend Mr Baker, was pleased to meet the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations yesterday. He is keen to keep engaging with the sector. We have been absolutely clear that when we leave the EU, we will leave the common fisheries policy. Indeed, from 2020 we will be negotiating as an independent coastal state. Let me reassure my hon. Friend David Duguid that our plans for exit from the common fisheries policy are not affected by the backstop discussions.
