Brexit: Gibraltar

Question for Department for Exiting the European Union

UIN HL4360, tabled on 20 December 2017

To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they intend to take to protect Gibraltar's special position as the only UK Overseas Territory within the EU, following the transitional arrangements outlined in paragraph 5 of the Annex to the Recommendation for a Council Decision (COM (2017) 830 final).

We are clear that Gibraltar is covered by our exit negotiations and we are committed to fully involving them as we leave the EU together. As the Prime Minister said on 18 December, we are not going to exclude Gibraltar from our negotiations for either the implementation period or the agreement for the future. We are entering into these negotiations on behalf of the whole UK family, and will take account of the particular interests of Gibraltar and its unique relationship with the EU.
