Cod Crusaders to meet Chancellor UK

Cod Crusaders to meet Chancellor – Campaigners fighting to save the fishing industry are due to meet Chancellor Gordon Brown to ask for a “recovery plan” to help save the declining trade.

Cod Crusaders Carol MacDonald and Morag Ritchie, from Peterhead, are travelling to London to discuss the economic impact of the industry’s collapse with Mr Brown at The Treasury.

Accompanied by SNP leader Alex Salmond and members of the United Fishing Industry Alliance, the Cod Crusaders will call on the Government to return control of the fishing industry to Scotland, because, they say, the controversial Common Fisheries Policy has failed to conserve fish stocks
