EEC Legislation in Gibraltar

Gibraltar’s application of EEC law is one of the first major issues that Mr Bossano, as Chief Minister, highlighted this year. The Government encountered a number of difficulties in the area of financial services, as Gibraltar did not follow UK practice in this area. In order to combat these problems, the Government agreed to the creation of an EEC legislation unit in Gibraltar.

We are expecting to be setting up the EEC legislation unit, within a few weeks, which will be funded by the United Kingdom and which will be staffed by the UK with expertise on a temporary basis to help us deal with the backlog that there is in terms of legal drafting.
