The UK Government continues to work side by side with the Government of Gibraltar to prepare for negotiations between the EU and UK in respect of Gibraltar based on the Framework agreed with Spain on 31 December 2020. At the UK-Gibraltar Joint Ministerial Council on 29 March 2021 the UK Government and Government of Gibraltar set out our joint approach to negotiations. We remain in constant contact with them as we make preparations, waiting for the EU to agree its mandate. The UK will stand fully behind Gibraltar, its people and its economy in any scenario.
