As this blog reported Lord Stoddart of Swindon asked HMG whether they intended to discuss repatriation of agriculture and fisheries (the last a potentially very popular move in this country) in their negotiations about EU reform and got a very evasive answer.
Not satisfied with that he went back into the fray and asked HMG:
further to the Written Answer by Lord Gardiner of Kimble on 11 June, whether the Prime Minister has yet discussed with other European Union leaders the repatriation of agriculture and fisheries policies to member states, and what position he has taken in those discussions.
Um, no, is the answer though phrased somewhat differently by Lord Gardiner of Kimble or, to be quite precise, his minions:
Discussions are at an early stage. My reply of 11 June referred to some of the areas where the Government believes the EU needs to change.
It did not mention fisheries. Does that mean that it might be raised as a subject at some later stage?
