My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs has had no discussions with Spain on the sharing of sovereignty of Gibraltar. Any communication that we have with the Spanish Government about Gibraltar reflects our clear position on sovereignty, which is that the UK will never enter into arrangements under which the people of Gibraltar would pass under the sovereignty of another state against their wishes and, furthermore, the UK will not enter into a process of sovereignty negotiations with which Gibraltar is not content.
