ONLY three labour MPs have turned out for the House of Commons debate on Gibraltar.
The debate has been scheduled on the back of a report from the Foreign Affairs Committee entitled, ‘Gibraltar: Time to get of the fence’.
The report looks at the relationship between Spain and Gibraltar and summarises that ‘the behaviour of Spain toward Gibraltar is unacceptable’.
It continues: ‘A NATO and EU ally is, as a matter of policy, deliberately impacting the economy of a British Overseas Territory. It is time for the government to get off the fence and take a tougher line’.
A six-month ultimatum set by the Foreign Affairs Committee required Spain to clean up its act in regards to water incursions and border controls.
The deadline passed last week and the committee declared that ‘there was no improvement’.
