Normandy Fisheries Back Jersey Over 'Permissive Extent Clause'

The Normandy Regional Fisheries Committee has backed Jersey's government in its decision to fight British attempts to take legislative control of Channel Islands waters.

The UK parliament passed a bill earlier this month, to give Westminster powers to set laws for the Channel Islands as part of Brexit negotiations - through a 'Permissive Extent Clause'.

External Relations Minister, Senator Ian Gorst, said it's 'unwanted and completely unnecessary'.

The Normandy Committee says it wants to continue the joint management of the waters independently, instead of a global agreement that would not take local issues into account.
