June Mummery told Express.co.uk that France and the Netherlands will be crippled without access to the UK’s fishing waters post-Brexit. The founder of community-led group Renaissance of the East Anglian Fisheries outlined that it is time for Britain to rebuild its own industry and create thousands of jobs in the fishing sector across the United Kingdom. 

Ms Mummery said regarding which European countries will be affected the most by a lack of access to UK waters: “The French and the Dutch.

“Oh dear, the Dutch, it will cripple them because they have pulsed fish.

“That will hurt the Dutch but at the end of the day, they have had years and years of abusing our waters.

“They have had years and years of making money off UK waters and now that is it.

“It is over, those days are done.

“We now need to rebuild our industry, creating thousands of jobs for the people in this country.

“They didn’t care about us, they have never worried were are industry has gone and those days are over.”

Last week Michael Gove revealed staying in the European Union for another year could cost the UK between £20billion gross and £10billion net.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster outlined the cost to the UK if the Brexit transition period is extended during the Lords’ European Union committee.

Lord Lamont asked: “Can you be more precisely about what the costs of an extension to the transition period would be?”

Mr Gove replied: “Yes, for every year continued membership the additional cost would be between £20billion gross and £10billion net.

“One additional complicating factor is that the current multi-annual framework of the EU ends at the end of this calendar year.

“There would be a new MFF.

“It would be decided by the EU 27 and we would not have a voice in that process.

“We would find that even the limited say we had in the setting of the MFF when we were a member of the EU would have gone.

“So, we can’t know preciously what bill we may be saddled with were we to agree to another year of continued transition.”
