I have had discussions with a range of organisations and people about Common Fisheries Policy reform, including the EU Fisheries Commissioner, MEPs, representatives of the fishing industry, processors, retailers, and non-government organisations.

I will continue to engage with, and seek contributions from, stakeholders in advance of publication of the EU Commission's proposals for reform in early summer.
