Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Sheryll Murray: We have heard 18 speeches by Back Benchers from all around the coast. I thank colleagues very much. I am sure that the Minister has got the message. I have one more for him: please do not sacrifice access to resources because you think you might get access to the market. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered the UK fishing industry.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Sheryll Murray: I do not want to leave out my hon. Friend— the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn)—who is the joint chairman of the all-party parliamentary group.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Sheryll Murray: Is the right hon. Gentleman seriously saying that British fishermen want to stay in the common fisheries policy?

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Sheryll Murray: I beg to move, That this House has considered the UK fishing industry. It is a tradition that MPs debate the UK fishing industry at the beginning of December. Such debates give us the opportunity not only to raise matters relating to the UK industry as a whole, but to reflect on proposals for the following year’s total allowable catch, which are discussed at the December Council of...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Sheryll Murray: As far as I am aware, when we leave the EU, we leave the common fisheries policy. The UK has given notice that it will withdraw from the 1964 London convention, which gave some nations restricted access to the 12-mile limit. The UK 200-mile or median line limit is prescribed in the Fisheries Limits Act 1976 but, once we leave, the rules for the management and conservation of fish stocks, and...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Sheryll Murray: I thank my hon. Friend, who will be interested to know that I will come on to that point. It might be worth considering UNCLOS in more detail. Article 61 says we must be responsible for setting conservation measures, taking account of the scientific information available. Such information often comes from the well-respected International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, with which the...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Sheryll Murray: I take a different view. I think that there is a place for commercial fishermen and recreational sea anglers to work together with us. A lot of people who go into a restaurant and think they are buying British bass are actually ordering farmed bass that has been imported from abroad. We need to make sure that we have a flexible management system that accommodates everybody. I would describe...

Dark Sky Status (Cornwall) (29 Nov 2017)

Sheryll Murray: I thank hon. Members for attending the debate, which has clearly demonstrated that there is complete cross-party consensus. We have had contributions from the official Opposition, the Scottish nationalists, the Democratic Unionist party and the Conservative party. I think we are all speaking with one voice on this issue. Let us hope that we can take this forward in every way possible....

Dark Sky Status (Cornwall) (29 Nov 2017)

Sheryll Murray: I beg to move, That this House has considered Cornwall’s dark skies status. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. As many hon. Members know, Cornwall is a beautiful place. Just saying “Cornwall” brings up pictures of a fantastic rugged coastline, the beauty of the moors, and of course our mining history, which made Cornwall a world heritage...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Major Infrastructure Projects (28 Nov 2017)

Sheryll Murray: Over the last few months, we have seen many accidents on the main artery through my constituency, on the A38. I am currently working with partners to ensure the much-needed urgent improvements on the road. Will the Treasury make sure that the extra investment in our roads can enable this work to get under way?
