UK Prime Minister gives Jersey full support over French fishermen protest

06 May 2021

The UK Prime Minister has given his full support to Jersey's management of the French fishermen's protest.

This morning Jersey's Chief Minister Senator John Le Fondré, Deputy Chief Minister Senator Lyndon Farnham, and Minister for External Relations Senator Ian Gorst discussed developments with the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.


Senator Le Fondré said: "We updated the Prime Minister on the current position in respect of the French protest and confirmed that Jersey Government representatives were meeting the fishermen to hear their concerns, and that we would ensure that lines of communication remained open and constructive."


Senator Gorst said: "The Prime Minister reiterated his personal support, and the continued assistance of the UK Government in working to resolve the dispute. We agreed that all sides remain committed to engaging with our partners in the EU and France to resolve the concerns arising from the issuing of fishing licenses under the Trade and Cooperation Agreement, which led to today's protest."
