Mr. John D. Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proposals there are for Gibraltar to become a separate state within the European Community; and if he will make a statement on negotiations with Spain about the future of Gibraltar.
I am not aware of any such proposals. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs plans to meet his Spanish counterpart to discuss Gibraltar later in the year, in one of the regular bilateral meetings under the Brussels negotiating process.
