UK says it will not budge on fishing rights in Brexit talks

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Tuesday it would not waver over fishing rights in Brexit talks and that progress would only be possible when the European Union recognised that.

“There are some very tough areas, one of them is fishing,” Paymaster General Penny Mordaunt told parliament.

“We are asking for our rights enshrined in international law to be upheld and we are not wavering from that point. The EU needs to recognise that,” she said.
