Representation in Westminster Movement calling on incoming Government to debate petition it handed in to Downing Street

The Representation in Westminster Movement is calling on Gibraltar's incoming Government, to debate the petition it handed in at 10 Downing Street this summer.

The petition, which was signed by over 14,000 people, calls for every citizen's right to be democratically represented in a Parliament where issues that can concern them are sometimes debated.

The Movement is now once again calling for the Gibraltar Parliament to debate the petition. It also seeks guarantees from a future Government that the Movement has representation at any future Constitutional Reform Committee.

The Committee for the Movement considers any new relationship with the UK is the most crucial short and long term issue for Gibraltar at these elections, and that it should supersede all other issues.
