Theresa May confirms UK's commitment to Gibraltar with regard to Brexit

  • She also took the opportunity to pass her best wishes to the people of Gibraltar on their National Day

During PM's Question Time in the UK Parliament on Wednesday, prime minister Theresa May reiterated her government's commitment to fully include Gibraltar in all aspects of the Brexit negotiations.

Speaking in response to a question from Conservative MP Bob Neill, who had asked if that were the case, she said she was very happy to confirm that, and that Britain would accept no veto over it. She also took the opportunity to pass her best wishes to the people of Gibraltar on their National Day on 10 September.

The Gibraltar government has maintained a close relationship with the UK regarding Brexit since the EU referendum in 2016.
