Foreign Office officials have not had discussions with trade unions in Gibraltar to discuss EU Exit. The Government of Gibraltar is responsible for its own contingency planning. The United Kingdom Government regularly engages with the Government of Gibraltar to provide expert advice and support to ensure that robust plans are in place. The Prime Minister has assured the Chief Minister that, as a member of the United Kingdom family, we will protect Gibraltar's interests as we leave the EU.
