Seafish allowed to appeal

UNITED KINGDOM
Monday, July 19, 2010, 12:40 (GMT + 9)



The Sea Fish Industry Authority (Seafish) announced on Thursday that leave to appeal to the Supreme Court had been settled in the matter of Bloomsbury International Ltd and others versus Seafish and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

Judge Nicholas Hamblen QC had decided in favour of Seafish in the High Court a year ago, but this verdict was overturned by the Court of Appeal. The new announcement will allow for an appeal against the Court of Appeal’s decision, led by DEFRA, to now take place.

Seafish has been given permission to get involved in support of DEFRA’s claims.

“We are pleased that the Supreme Court has granted us leave to appeal and remain convinced that the grounds for our appeal are sound,”  said John Rutherford, Chief Executive at Seafish, “We are hopeful that this process will eventually lead to the restoration of a levy on imports.”
 
“In the meantime, we will continue to collect the domestic levy and seek to use it to provide value to the industry. We continue discussions with our government sponsors on the support needed in the interim and on our longer term future,” he concluded.

Back in March, Seafish announced its intent to fight the High Court’s shock ruling on the fish levy. The organisation then applied for permission to appeal the decision to the latest decision to the Supreme Court, as is DEFRA.

In 2008, some companies from the British Seafood Group (BSG) launched proceedings against Seafish to contest the legality of the sea fish levy in its application to imports. On 24 July 2009, Justice Hamblen judged favour of Seafish and the claims were defeated -- before the Court of Appeal overturned Hamblen's verdict.

The High Court’s ruling to allow an appeal by Bloomsbury International Ltd and other companies in BSG to recover GBP 2 million (EUR 2.2 million) in levy paid on foreign fish, means that Seafish could not enforce the levy on any seafood imports, which deprives it of the majority of its income.
