HC Deb 20 May 1954 vol 527 c2290 I am sure we shall gain nothing by offering to ' discuss' Gibraltar at the end of the war. Spaniards will know that if we win, discussions will not be fruitful; and if we lose, they would not be necessary. I do not believe mere verbiage of this kind will affect the Spanish decision. It only shows weakness and lack of confidence in our victory, which will encourage them the more.
