Gibraltar has begun laying out its position in favour of the UK remaining in the European Union.
The government on Tuesday said it had made a submission to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons on the consequences for Gibraltar of the Brexit referendum.
The document explains that Gibraltar entered the European Economic Community, as it was then, in 1973 as a European territory for whose external relations a Member State is responsible. It outlines Gibraltar’s terms of membership and traces the sequence of events that led to the opening of the border in 1985.
