A UK Prime Minister is to visit Gibraltar for the first time in 47 years.
David Cameron will address a rally in support of Europe tomorrow afternoon.
It is the first time a British leader has visited the Rock since 1968.
Tory leader Cameron will address a Stronger in Europe rally alongside First Minister Fabian Picardo.
“I am also going to address the crowd to give the event the Gibraltar angle also,” said Picardo this evening.
“This is a great and historic event for Gibraltar. It demonstrates the commitment to Gibraltar that Mr Cameron has displayed since we were first elected.”
“Gibraltarians now need to turn out massively to support this visit. We need to fill Casemates completely, however hot it may be tomorrow, with Gibraltarians of all generations to show our support for the Remain campaign and for David Cameron himself.”
Reaction from Spain has so far been muted, in particular because the country is keen for the UK to stay in Europe.
