The talks on the granting of fishing licenses have continued today (Monday) between the European Commission, France and the UK.
We have seen the first signs from the British authorities of speeding up the discussions and a response to the latest French proposals is expected by Wednesday.
I have also conversed with David Frost, the UK minister responsible for relations with the EU. I have invited him to Paris on Thursday for an in-depth discussion about the problems in implementing the EU-UK agreements.
In order to facilitate open discussions, the measures announced and prepared by France will not be put in place before this meeting and before the British responses on the issue of fishing licenses have been considered.
