  • Press Release - Meeting with Robin Walker MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for DExEU

    Thursday 10 August 2017

    For Immediate Release: 10 August 2017

    Alderney President, Mr Stuart Trought and Alderney's Policy and Finance Committee Chairman, Mr James Dent had talks yesterday, 8th August, with Robin Walker MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for DExEU.

    Alderney's position on Brexit and the general desire of the SoA to work with the other Crown dependencies and in particular with Guernsey and Sark was highlighted.  It was however also stressed that Alderney wanted to have a voice on anything that matters only to the island, or significantly more to Alderney than to the other islands.  With this in mind a number of issues of particular importance to Alderney were highlighted. These included Brexit policies on: population and residence; e-gaming; continued access to non-Schengen ports for both Alderney residents and its visitors; continued rights to land fish without undue bureaucracy in France; and the implications of extending the Alderney territorial waters to 12-miles - these included the consequent risks associated with the Hurd DEEP and Channel Shipping Lanes.

    The meeting concluded with an invitation to Mr Walker to visit Alderney.  Mr Walker described the meeting as "very useful" and thanked the Alderney representatives for their time.
