HC Deb 08 November 1966 vol 735 cc242-3W
42. Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will consider offering Gibraltar in the near future British county status, in order to assure the Gibraltarians of remaining permanently British.

Mr. Frederick Lee

The people of Gibraltar are British and will remain British. Nothing can alter that. As far as constitutional changes are concerned, I invite the: hon. Member's attention to the reply which my hon. Friend gave on 1st November. [Vol. 735, c.58.]
