Stevenson In Call For Fish Jobs For The North-East

SNP Scottish Parliament candidate for Banff & Buchan Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the review of civil service jobs dispersal programme announced today by the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Mr Stevenson has written to Sir Michael Lyons, who is heading the review, demanding that UK civil service fisheries jobs should be transferred to Buchan.

Speaking in Peterhead today, Mr Stevenson said:

“Sixty per cent of Europe’s white fish is in Scottish waters. The civil service staff working with our industry should be located close to them. Only then will informed and realistic recommendations on the future of our fishing industry be made.

“The disastrous EU Common Fisheries Policy comes from Austrian Franz Fischler who represents a country with no fishing interests. We can do better in Scotland by linking fishing activity to fishing decisions.

“I have therefore asked Sir Michael Lyons to visit the North-east in early course and ensure that the benefits of such a relocation are reflected in his report.”
