Gibraltar included in latest UK Brexit paper

The United Kingdom Government has today published its latest paper on Brexit entitled “Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union”.

This includes a reference to Gibraltar as follows:

11. The Agreement will apply to the whole of the UK, and to the extent applicable to the Crown Dependencies, Gibraltar and the other UK Overseas Territories. The Government is working closely with these governments to ensure their priorities are taken into account in the UK-EU negotiations on withdrawal, the implementation period and future relationship. The Government will continue to engage with and keep these jurisdictions informed as the Bill is developed. The Crown Dependencies, Gibraltar and the other UK Overseas Territories will implement the Withdrawal Agreement as required in their own legislation, in line with their ordinary legislative processes.

The Government welcomes this latest reference which reflects the position as already explained to the Gibraltar Parliament.
