​Gibraltar to be represented at UK political party conferences

Representatives of the Government are to attend the party conferences in the United Kingdom, as its political lobbying work resumes.

The Queen's passing meant that the Liberal Democrats' conference was cancelled, after arrangements were made for the Deputy Chief Minister to participate in a panel discussion on the future outside the European Union.

However, Joseph Garcia will host a reception at the Labour Party conference, which begins this Sunday in Liverpool.

The Chief Minister will then host the traditional Gibraltar Government reception at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham in October.

Fabian Picardo will next fly to New York to address the 4th Committee of the United Nations, while Dr Garcia will remain in Birmingham to network with new UK Ministers, senior Tory MPs and others.

Gibraltar will also be represented at the conferences of the Democratic Unionist Party and the Scottish National Party in October.
