§ Lord Merrivale
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What steps they are taking for Spain to conform with its 5 February 1985 agreement to open fully the land frontier with Gibraltar, bearing in mind present restrictions, and its agreement to operate red and green customs channels.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean)
We continue to urge Spain to provide sufficient staff to ensure that delays are kept to a minimum, and to implement its proposal in 1985 to establish red and green channels. Spain has the right to carry out customs checks because Gibraltar is outside the Community Customs Territory.
