Alec pledges support to overseas territory on Gibraltar Day

The Gibraltar Government has invited Alec and a cross-party group of 27 other Members of Parliament to Gibraltar for talks on the economy and Brexit.

The visit coincides with this year’s extra-special National Day, marking the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum when 99.64% of Gibraltarians voted to remain under British sovereignty.

In a statement the Gibraltar Government explained that  a full working programme has been prepared for the group. This includes a briefing with the Chief Minister Fabian Picardo, a Brexit briefing with the Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia who is responsible for work related to EU exit, a briefing from the Ministry of Defence and a call on the Governor and the Commander British Forces.

There will also be a technical briefing on financial services matters.
