Since June 2016, the British Government has engaged constructively with our European partners to address the practical implications for Gibraltar arising from EU exit, including for the more than 8,000 Spanish frontier workers crossing into Gibraltar daily. As the Prime Minister reiterated in the House of Commons on 21 November, the UK has fully involved the Government of Gibraltar throughout. Our commitment to Gibraltar’s sovereignty, its people and its economy remains absolute, including in any discussions regarding the future.
