star this property answer text <p>On 26 February, two Northern Ireland fishing vessels were detained in Dundalk Bay. The skippers of the boats appeared in court on 1 March. They have since been released without conviction and the boats returned.</p><p> </p><p>The Voisinage Arrangement between the UK and Ireland provides for reciprocal access to fish in the 0-6nm zone. However, the arrangement has been suspended by Ireland following a decision by the Irish Supreme Court in 2016. As a result, fishing by Northern Ireland vessels within Ireland’s 0-6nm zone is currently not permitted. The UK has continued to respect the arrangement but cannot allow this unequal treatment to continue indefinitely.</p><p> </p><p>The UK Government has made numerous representations to the Irish Government since 2016 to push for the reinstatement of the arrangement as soon as possible. Following the seizure of the two vessels, the Irish Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, committed on 1 March to changing the law to restore the status quo to what it was before 2016, and has indicated that he is confident the legislation can be passed quickly. Government officials are seeking confirmation from the Irish Government of the timetable for this.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The sheep sector plays a vital role in contributing to rural life, local economies and the iconic landscapes of the UK. With over 50% of the national flock being in Wales and Scotland, the sheep sector is an important sector across the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The climate and topography of the UK mean that much of it is unsuited to commercial crop production, especially in Wales, Scotland and the north and west of England, where livestock production is the main use of agricultural land. Sheep are a major part of that, with breeds adapted to thrive in areas of harsh climate, topography and low feed-value vegetation. Furthermore, grazing of sheep has a key role in maintaining open habitats, primarily grasslands and heathlands, by hindering succession to scrub or woodland in the lowlands and sub-montane zone. In doing so they are an important land management resource.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently developing our own farming policies as we prepare to leave the EU. Our intention, as laid out in the Agriculture Bill, is for our future policies to primarily reward farmers for providing environmental benefits. We are currently working with farmers, land managers and representative bodies including the National Farmers Union, Tenant Farmers Association and National Sheep Association to ensure that our future Environmental Land Management system can work with livestock farms including sheep farms in lowland and upland areas.</p><p> </p><p>Defra undertakes and coordinates research across the whole food production system, looking at factors including environmental impacts, productivity, efficiency, waste reduction etc. This includes research into sustainable diets, local and seasonal produce, environmental labelling, supply chain efficiency, and sustainable consumption.</p>
