The Lagan Valley MP said, “There is strong affection and support for Gibraltar both across the House of Commons and across the United Kingdom. It is important there is complete clarity that Gibraltar is included within the Article 50 negotiations and withdrawal agreement.

The Prime Minister was very clear in her commitment today and that will be warmly welcomed both here and in Gibraltar. We know that opinion in Gibraltar supported the campaign to remain within the European Union, but many here could learn from representatives there who are now determined to ensure the best possible outcome and will work in support of the government to deliver that outcome.”
