EP: Council risks derailing fisheries reform

The the European Parliament voted by an overwhelming majority to postpone a report on Technical Conservation Measures in order to put political pressure on the Council to move forward with the issue of Long Term Management Plans which are currently blocked, and which are vitally important in terms of protecting fisheries resources and ensuring the livelihood of communities dependent on fisheries.
No progress has been made on these important plans since the introduction of the Lisbon Treaty in 2009 by successive Council Presidencies.
"We are now calling on the Irish Presidency to deal with this issue in a pragmatic and realistic manner. Unfortunately, if the Irish Presidency is unable to map an acceptable way forward, this Parliament may have no alternative but to delay the adoption of future reports including the Basic Regulation of the Common Fisheries Policy and the Regulation on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.", Pat the Cope Gallagher, ALDE MEP said.
