Sir Alan Duncan reaffirms support for Gibraltar

Sir Alan Duncan has reaffirmed the UK Government's support for Gibraltar during a Foreign Office Question and Answer session in the House of Commons.

The Minister for Europe said he completely disagreed with language used in recent EU documents describing Gibraltar as a "colony", and stressed that Gibraltar is a full member of the UK family, and has a mature and modern constitutional relationship with the UK. However, Sir Alan said he hoped the good relationship with Spain can continue in a harmonious way once the UK leaves the EU.
