May to meet Rajoy

Prime Minister Theresa May will meet Spain’s caretaker Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, in Madrid on Thursday for talks on a range of issues including Brexit.

The visit to Spain is part of a string of meetings in European capitals as Mrs May appeals for a fair "divorce deal" from Brussels for the UK.

Spanish media speculated that Gibraltar will figure on the agenda for discussion, although this has not been confirmed by either the UK or Spanish governments.

If Gibraltar does come up, Mrs May will almost certainly reflect the British position set out at the United National last week.

Britain told the UN Fourth Committee there would be no change or discussion on sovereignty against the wishes of the Gibraltarians, and that Gibraltar will be fully involved in the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
