“The idea that the EU should continue to occupy British waters as it pleases makes a mockery of our new position under international law.”

Mr Collins added: “Our negotiators need to stand firm in the face of such arrogance and deliver what they have promised – a coastal state with control over the fish in UK waters and the right to manage stocks in a proper, sustainable fashion.

“That way, we can revitalise our hard-pressed coastal and island communities through jobs and investment.”
