task and finish group to undertake an inquiry into the proposed reforms to the
Common Fisheries Policy.

Welsh Fisheries Zone and the to consider the wider implications for Welsh
Territorial Seas of the proposals for the European fisheries sector;
make recommendations to the Welsh Government on what it should prioritise
in its negotiations on the reform process;
act as a forum for stakeholders in Wales to engage with the debate on the
future of the policy;
influence the wider debate on CFP Reform, the Task and Finish Group will
seek to share its conclusions with UK parliamentary bodies, the European
Commission and the European Parliament and with other relevant European
bodies such as the Committee of the Regions.
