Title: Fishing Plans For Scottish Crews ‘Unworkable’ (1 of 2)

Of interest to: Scotland

Script details:
The rules Scottish fishing fleets will have to follow next year are being labelled ‘complicated’ and ‘unworkable’ by UKIP.

The number of days fishermen can spend at sea will remain the same, with some quotas increasing.

But UKIP MEP for Scotland, David Coburn, says control should come back from Brussels:

Title: NI Fish Deal Reached Despite ‘Tortuous Process’ (2 of 3)

Of interest to: Northern Ireland

Script details:
There’s relief for fishing crews in Northern Ireland as annual talks on how much they can catch are concluded.

Despite the European Commission suggesting a 14% cut, fleets here will be able to land 3% more prawns in 2015 than they could this year.

Negotiations concluded late last night in Brussels on quotas for the EU.

DUP MEP, Diane Dodds, says achieving the increase is massively important for the industry in the province:

The results of key talks on how much fish Northern Irish crews can catch is being welcomed – but there's criticism of the process.

But there’s disappointment the quota for cod is again being reduced for 2015.

Diane Dodds, DUP MEP, says they’re broadly happy at the outcome, but it was hard fought:
