EU Readies Support For Fishermen In Case Of No-Deal Brexit

Description

The European Union’s executive on Wednesday proposed two laws to support fishermen hit by a no-deal Brexit, an example of how the bloc is stepping up contingency plans as March 29 nears and Britain is undecided about how to move forward. One proposal by the European Commission would allow compensation for those cut off from fishing in British waters as is the practice now. “This will help off-set some of the impact of a sudden closure of UK waters to EU fishing vessels in a no-deal scenario,” the Commission said in a statement.
