The European Union is reportedly considering a new fishing rights proposal from the United Kingdom as Prime Minister Boris Johnson makes an effort to secure a last moment trade deal. According to the sources of knowledge, the latest proposal indicates that Britain has agreed to let the boats from EU to retain two thirds of the catch. Apparently, the United Kingdom was insisting that the EU must agree upon 60% cut last week.
It has been reported that the EU recently offered a 25% cut over a span of six years. However, France is not very comfortable with this proposal and this has fueled an outrage from the bloc’s fishing industry.
