  • A cross-party delegation of German MPs visited the Rock to find out more about the political and constitutional relationship with the UK and the EU

Amid the arguments and confusion about Spain's veto over Gibraltar during the Brexit transition period in the agreements made by the UK and EU this week, a cross-party delegation of German MPs visited the Rock to find out more about the political and constitutional relationship with the UK and the EU, Gibraltar's economy and the implications of Britain's withdrawal from the European Union.

The MPs were from the Saxony-Anhalt parliamentary committee on Federal Affairs, European Affairs and the Media. They were briefed by Gibraltar's deputy chief minister, Dr Joseph Garcia, who also holds the Brexit portfolio, and were given a guided tour of the Rock, its attractions and places of interest.
