Scottish Conservative leader warns over Brexit fishing rights

EDINBURGH, March 19 (Reuters) - Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said on Monday she would not support a Brexit deal which failed to deliver full control over fish stocks and vessel access.

“That we now have to wait until 2020 to assume full control is an undoubted disappointment,” said Davidson, who leads British Prime Minister Theresa May’s party in Scotland. “Having spoken to fishing leaders today, I know they are deeply frustrated with this outcome.

“I should make it clear today that I will not support a deal as we leave the EU which, over the long-term, fails to deliver that full control over fish stocks and vessel access,” she said. (Reporting by Elisabeth O’Leary in Edinburgh; writing by Guy Faulconbridge; editing by Michael Holden)
