Unidas Podemos MEP calls on Barnier to keep in mind consequences of Brexit for Campo de Gibraltar

An MEP for the left-wing Spanish political grouping Unidas Podemos has called on the EU’s Chief Brexit negotiator to pay special attention to how Brexit could affect the Campo de Gibraltar.

Sira Rego said that in a meeting with Michel Barnier, she communicated the worry felt by her party over the possible consequences of Brexit for the area and for the cross-frontier workers affected. She highlighted the Campo’s economic dependence on the Rock. Ms Rego added that Mr Barnier did not reveal a concrete calendar for negotiations, but that he agreed that the issue should be kept in mind in the talks during the Brexit transition period.
