Private Members’ Bill on Gibraltar tabled for 19th June

A Private Members’ Bill calling on the UK Government to give Gibraltar the opportunity to elect its own representative to the UK Parliament has been tabled for Tuesday, the 19th June. MP Craig Mackinlay will now give a ten minute speech, after it was postponed to allow for Government business.

Mr Mackinlay claims the UK has no wish to impose representation in the UK parliament on Gibraltar. He believes it would not change the devo-max settlement of Gibraltar’s Constitution but would rather signal a perpetual and lasting bond of shared interests.
