THE Government of Gibraltar is claiming that the Spanish authorities are now denying export permission for the supply of rock, sand and aggregate destined for projects on the Rock.
The Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, will raise the issue with the Foreign Secretary William Hague in London tomorrow, in addition to the other recent instances of action being taken by the Spanish Government at the frontier and at sea.
The Government of Gibraltar has already identified and sourced alternative sources of supplies and, as a result, there should be no delay to any project as a result of these restrictions.
Gibraltar has threatened legal action and has indicated that complaints to the EU Commission will follow if the restrictions are not removed.
