HL Deb 15 October 1999 vol 605 c96WA
Lord Merrivale

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether any exchanges are taking place between themselves and the Governments of Gibraltar and Spain towards an agreement with Spain on the joint use and commercial development of Gibraltar Airport. [HL4112]

Baroness Scotland of Asthal

The subject of Gibraltar airport has been raised in discussion with the Governments of Spain and Gibraltar, but there have been no detailed exchanges aimed at a new agreement on the joint use and development of the airport. We would welcome a fresh look at the issue. Her Majesty's Government continue to see potential benefits to the people of Gibraltar and of the neighbouring regions of Spain in such an agreement.
