§ Q24. Sir W. Teeling
asked the Prime Minister if he will offer Gibraltar integration with the United Kingdom, similar to that offered to Rhodesia last year; and whether he will arrange for a referendum in Gibraltar as to whether this is desired or not in view of the unwillingness of the Gibraltar Government to put this to a test.
§ The Prime Minister
No. I agree with the views expressed over the last two years by the elected representatives of the people that, in their circumstances in Gibraltar, integration would not be in the best interests of the people.
