Lord Kilclooney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether British residents in Gibraltar will have the right to vote in the next election at the European Parliament. [HL1053]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

Her Majesty's Government are actively working to ensure Gibraltar's enfranchisement in time for the 2004 elections to the European Parliament. We unequivocally accept the obligation to give effect to the judgment of the ECHR and are continuing our efforts to this end.
