Defra Ministers meet with their Channel Island counterparts on an ad hoc basis, most recently at the All Party Parliamentary Group on the Channel Islands meeting on 11th February. In the last six months, Defra officials met representatives from the Channel Islands to discuss EU exit issues relating to the fishing industry on 18th September, 22nd October, 10th December, 17th January, and 13th February and will next meet them on 13th March. Defra supplements these meetings with fortnightly and ad hoc teleconferences. We will continue this engagement going forward.
