The interests of the people of Gibraltar are being defended and sustained. What I have said, and I hope the House agrees, is that we do not consider that a situation has been reached where we should start to take it out on Spain with any kind of direct attack on Spain.

For reasons we all appreciate, his own Government were falling over themselves to supply frigates to Spain at that time.
