Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q You referred to the need for co-ordination between marine and land-based planning. Would you say that the same would apply for economic regeneration and a role for local enterprise partnerships?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q Good science and evidence should underpin sustainable fishing, yet at the moment electric pulse fishing is going on in the southern North sea. How can we devise a new framework that stops such practices and ensures that we pursue a precautionary approach to sustainable fisheries management?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q Before the Dutch built a whole new industry on the back of this, should the science not have come to a conclusion as to whether it was a good thing or not?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q So the new UK fishing policy can be better than the CFP when it comes to sustainable fisheries management.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of witness (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Griffin, you have talked in quite a lot of detail about the reallocation of quota. From my perspective, representing a community that is a have-not, shall we say, that is music to my ears, but I am wary of the legal implications of that. I agree that fishing is a public right, but as we have heard in our evidence sessions, by ill fortune or bad management, it has acquired certain...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of witness (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q The right hon. Member for Newbury (Richard Benyon), when he was Fisheries Minister, fought very hard in the 2015 review of the CFP, and the general consensus was that it was a good deal. One of the main things won was article 17, so you worry me by basically saying that no one takes any notice of it. In transposing article 17 to the Bill, what can we do to give it teeth, so that people...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q There is a scenario at present in the southern North sea where a significant amount of fish is caught, in particular by Dutch vessels, using particularly unsustainable practices such as electric pulse fishing, and it is processed in the Netherlands and then imported back into the UK. That presents three challenges: allowing UK fishermen to catch more of the fish in our waters; promoting...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q Should we have Bills that do not do anything horribly wrong or Bills that promote the best possible practices?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: My apologies for arriving late. In my experience, fisheries management is currently incredibly adversarial. We in this place, parliamentarians, and non-governmental organisations very much promote a more collaborative approach, with the fishermen being the solution. Do you think that that will be achievable in practice, and how do we make it achievable? We talk about collaboration the whole...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q I will not comment on pulse fishing, because I agree with you, Mr Brown. I think the Minister said that the Government are happy to look at an effort-based pilot. I am conscious that there was a pilot in the past. What was the outcome of that? What shortcomings were there, and what lessons might we learn for future pilots?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q Tom, you were expressing concern at how a public asset might have inadvertently become a property right, and how that might constrain more radical reforms of the quota system. Could we go back to the court case of 2012-13 when Lord Justice Coulson put down his determination? I have heard some suggestions that the Secretary of State won that case against the POs, because what he was...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q The Secretary of State has to consult with Welsh and Scottish Ministers and the Northern Irish on this. Are the English put at a disadvantage?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: My question is a variation on the Opposition spokesman’s point. It is commonly recognised that the inshore fleet—the under-10s—has had a raw deal as far as access to quota and fishing opportunities is concerned. The Bill is largely based on the assumption that an increase in opportunities, as a result of taking back control of our waters, will give us an uplift that will provide...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q I have a couple of questions. Mr Salter, the highlight of the Second Reading debate was the vision of my hon. Friend the Member for Broxbourne (Mr Walker) for what recreational fishing might do for local economies. Does recreational fishing need to be mentioned in the Bill for you to actually achieve that objective? Mr Trebilcock, the Bill suggests an enhanced role for producer...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q If I could just come back on that, you said POs function very much for the benefit of their local communities. The Lowestoft producer organisation in my constituency is made up of three or four accountants in the town but seven trawlers that never come near the port. I do not think that that is functioning properly.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: You said that 80% of our exports go to the EUQ .

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: Q Is there any scope for increasing exports outside the EU?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I have two questions. Do you think the Bill will lead to increased fishing opportunities both for new entrants and for what until now have been called the under-10s, although I think it is important we try to get away from that descriptor? Picking up on the Minister’s comments about equal allocation across all UK fisheries for all UK boats, do you think that principle lies comfortably with...

Universal Support: East Suffolk (28 Nov 2018)

Peter Aldous: I beg to move, That this House has considered universal support in East Suffolk. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hosie, and I welcome the Minister. The Government set up the universal support system to assist universal credit claimants in making claims and managing the payments they receive. The full roll-out of universal credit in Lowestoft, in my constituency, started...
