HC Deb 20 May 1957 vol 570 c844
18. Mr. G. Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reply he has received to his note of 16th April to the Spanish Government on the subject of Gibraltar frontier restrictions.

Mr. Ian Harvey

No reply has yet been received. At the same time, no further incidents have been reported on the frontier.

Mr. Jeger

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that his information from the frontier regularly varies from the information I get, and that my latest information, which is only two days old, is that the situation on the Gibraltar frontier is exactly the same as it was when we discussed this matter and which caused the Government to send a note to the Spanish Government? Is he determined to allow both ends of the Mediterranean to get into the same mess?

Mr. Harvey

If the hon. Gentleman would care to discuss his information with me, I should be very glad to take appropriate action, but I can only say that the information available to me at present is that there have been no further incidents on this frontier since our debate in the House before Easter.
