Trawlers may face ban in Ir­ish wa­ters

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

IR­ISH trawlers might not have ac­cess to wa­ters off the coast of the North af­ter Brexit, it was re­vealed yes­ter­day.

At the same time the North’s fish­ing fleet could be barred from trawl­ing of the Repub­lic’s coasts, ac­cord­ing to the North­ern Ire­land Af­fairs Com­mit­tee.

Com­mit­tee chair­man Dr Andrew Mur­ri­son has urged the UK govern­ment to “take ac­tion on Ire­land’s uni­lat­eral sus­pen­sion of the Voisi­nage Ar­range­ment”.

There have now been calls for talks be­tween Dublin and London to re­solve the is­sue which could re­sult in job losses on both sides of the border.
