When I was first elected in 2010, I carefully chose the subject for my Maiden Speech which is always a terrifying moment for an MP. I chose to make it about jobs - of the present and the future - and specifically about protecting our fishing industry. Since then, I have been fighting for our fishermen to get a fairer share of quota allocation. I have often met with Minister George Eustice MP and had local fishermen raise their concerns directly to the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to see what Government can to do help. The quota is now significantly more than it was in recent years.
