HC Deb 11 July 1994 vol 246 c427W
Dr. Marek

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how Gibraltar's interests will be represented in the European Parliament.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

Gibraltar does not have an MEP because annexe II of the 1976 EC Act on Direct Elections limits the franchise in European Parliament elections to the United Kingdom. Her Majesty's Government are responsible for representing Gibraltar within the European Union.
