Brexit: Gibraltar non-negotiable

Downing Street said May reiterated that Britain “remains steadfastly committed” to its support for Gibraltar, its people and its economy, in a call with the territory’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo.

“The Prime Minister said we will never enter into arrangements under which the people of Gibraltar would pass under the sovereignty of another state against their freely and democratically expressed wishes, nor will we ever enter into a process of sovereignty negotiations with which Gibraltar is not content,” a spokeswoman said.

“The Prime Minister said we remain absolutely dedicated to working with Gibraltar for the best possible outcome on Brexit, and will continue to involve them fully in the process.”
