Catherine Stihler (PSE), rapporteur. – Mr President, I wish to speak briefly on my report on access restrictions to fisheries under the common fisheries policy.
I call on colleagues to give their full support to this report on access restrictions to the CFP, which cover the Shetland Box and the Plaice Box. This report is good news for sustainable EU fisheries policy as it recognises the need to make sensitive use of access restrictions.
I should like to thank the PSE Group for its invaluable backing. The restrictions covered by this report are of obvious importance, and I call on all colleagues to vote for paragraph 8 and for the resolution as a whole.
