Lord Hoyle

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the invitation to the Chief Minister of Gibraltar to participate in the talks in Gibraltar about its future between Britain and Spain will allow him to have a voice on any decisions which may be reached. [HL2317]

The Minister for Trade (Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean)

At the Brussels Process ministerial meeting held in London on 4 February my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and the Spanish Foreign Minister reiterated their invitation for the Chief Minister to participate in future meetings under the Brussels Process, on the basis of the Two Flags Three Voices formula with his own and distinct voice as part of the British delegation.
