A Tory MP last night warned of further cuts in fishing quotas as the Royal Navy patrolled the Irish Box in readiness for an expected Spanish invasion.

David Harris, the Tories' Fisheries Committee chairman, said allowing in the Spanish boats would lead to further cuts in quotas. Mr Harris, who has the major fishing port of Newlyn, Cornwall, in his constituency, has written to the Prime Minister calling on him to take the lead in sorting out the Common Fisheries Policy under which foreign boats are admitted.
