The Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia CMG MP this morning briefed Opposition Members on the Brexit Select Committee on the developing plans for No Negotiated Outcome (NNO) to the negotiations for the future relationship of Gibraltar with the European Union. The detailed briefing lasted nearly two hours.

The Opposition Members present were Hon Marlene Hassan Nahon MP, Hon Damon Bossino MP and Hon Daniel Feetham MP. The Deputy Chief Minister was accompanied by the Civil Contingencies Coordinator Ivor Lopez MBE, Principal Secretary Ernest Francis and PA Stephen Britto.

The Government remains fully committed to the negotiations for an agreement on the future relationship of Gibraltar with the European Union based on the New Year’s Eve Agreement. However, it is only prudent and responsible to prepare for the possibility of no agreement at the same time.
