HC Deb 12 March 1980 vol 980 c581W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he intends to discuss with the Council of Ministers the removal of all restrictions on the territory of Gibraltar before Spain's accession as a full member of the European Community.

Sir Ian Gilmour

Neither my right hon. and noble Friend nor I propose to raise the matter in the Council of Ministers for the time being. In the Government's view, progress in solving this problem can best be made through discussion with Spain.
