HC Deb 29 November 1988 vol 142 c185W
Mr. Squire

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, in the light of the recent judgment of the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Norrisv. Ireland, re-affirming that the complete illegality of consensual homosexual acts between males violates article 8 of the European convention on human rights, what steps Her Majesty's Government proposes to take to ensure that the law outlawing consensual homosexual acts between males in Gibraltar is brought into line with the court's ruling.

Mrs. Chalker

We have brought the Norris judgment to the attention of the Gibraltar authorities, who are considering the matter.
