Department for Exiting the European Union
To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, pursuant to the Answer of 27 April 2018 to Question 137188 on Marine Protected Areas, whether the derogation under the UK's Treaty of Accession to the EU on exclusive use of the six-nautical-miles and 12-nautical-miles fishing zone will remain in force throughout the implementation period.
Answered by: Mr Robin Walker
Answered on: 03 May 2018

As stated in the answer to Question 137188, on 19 March, the UK and EU reached an agreement on the terms of the implementation period. Under the agreement, the common fisheries policy, including arrangements on the management and access of the six-nautical-miles and 12-nautical miles fishing zones, will continue to apply during the duration of the implementation period.

By December 2020 we will be negotiating fishing opportunities for 2021 as an independent coastal state completely outside the Common Fisheries Policy.
