“Without prejudice to the United Kingdom’s responsibility for Gibraltar’s compliance with European Union law, matters which under this Constitution are the responsibility of Ministers shall not cease to be so even though they arise in the context of the European Union.”
The Chief Minister Fabian Picardo and the Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia have held a number of political meetings in London throughout the day. This follows the EU Referendum last week in which Gibraltar voted overwhelmingly to remain.
In the light of the outcome of last week’s Referendum, the Government considers it important that people understand the procedure that exists for the withdrawal of a Member State from the European Union. The procedure confirms that it is very much a case of business as usual for a number of years to come and that therefore people should not expect any dramatic change for a considerable period of time.
Gibraltar Cultural Services, on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, has been working closely with GibMedia in order to provide a very entertaining programme for this year’s 2016 Summer Nights. HM Government of Gibraltar is pleased to offer a wide variety of activities, with something for everyone to enjoy.
