Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 09 September 2020 [Draft] : 09 September 2020


Fergus Ewing

I am quite happy if you want to share those documents—which were not shared with me before, although we have answered them so they are in the public domain—to look at any particular issue yo...



Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 09 September 2020 [Draft] : 09 September 2020


Fergus Ewing

Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 09 September 2020 [Draft] : 09 September 2020


Fergus Ewing

Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 09 September 2020 [Draft] : 09 September 2020


Fergus Ewing

Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 09 September 2020 [Draft] : 09 September 2020


Fergus Ewing

Yes, we do. The fishermen are very successful at what they do in catching the fish. We have the enforcement team and we have that capacity. On the UK Fisheries Bill, we played a very signifi...



Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 09 September 2020 [Draft] : 09 September 2020


Fergus Ewing

I think that the industry is well aware of the importance of all those things. In some respects, aquaculture is a type of engineering industry above all. Increasingly, as it goes further off...



Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 09 September 2020 [Draft] : 09 September 2020


Fergus Ewing
