UK and Gibraltar set for first joint ministerial Brexit meeting

The British and Gibraltar Governments will today hold the first formal meeting of a new joint ministerial committee on Brexit.

The structure is the same format used by the UK in its discussions with the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Gibraltar is being dealt with separately to other UK overseas territories because of its membership of the EU.

The meeting in London will be chaired by the UK’s Permanent Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Exiting the European Union, Robin Walker, and will also include the Minister of State for Europe and the Americas, Sir Alan Duncan.

The Gibraltar delegation will be led by Chief Minister Fabian Picardo and includes the Deputy Chief Minister and Gibraltar’s Brexit minister, Dr Joseph Garcia; the Attorney General Michael Llamas; and UK Representative Dominique Searle.
