‘PRODUCTIVE’ discussions have taken place between British and Spanish officials over Gibraltar.

No Gibraltarian officials were present at the meeting in Madrid, but the government was aware that the meeting was happening and they have been working alongside Number 10 on Brexit issues.

No information about the outcome of the talks has been released but the Gibraltarian government has been updated.

“Officials discussed a wide-range of technical exit-related issues, agreeing a constructive approach to addressing these, including where relevant to Gibraltar,” a spokesman for the UK government told the press.

“The UK is committed to fully involving Gibraltar as we prepare for negotiations to leave the EU, to ensure that their priorities are taken properly into account.”
