Philippa Whitford – 2021 Comments on Victoria Prentis Not Reading Fisheries Deal

The comments made by Philippa Whitford, the SNP spokesperson on Brexit, on 13 January 2021.

Due to Brexit-induced bureaucracy, Scotland’s fishing communities are already experiencing severe disruption and cannot get their produce to their customers in the EU market on time. For the Tory Government’s fisheries minister to then admit that she did not even bother to read the details of the damaging deal because she was too busy is unbelievable and makes her position untenable.
