All–Party Support

The Chief Minister met with the all- party Gibraltar Group at the CPA Room at the House of Commons, yesterday. The meeting was well attended.

The Chief Minister explained the MoD contractorisation issues and set out the position of the Gibraltar Government and Gibraltar Trades unions.

The Gibraltar Group decided there and then to support the position of the GoG and Trades unions and decided to send a letter to the Secretary of State for Defence before parliament rises on Monday, expressing their support for the position and calling on the MoD to engage in negotiations with the Gibraltar trade unions to achieve efficiency savings in an agreed manner.

The Chief Minister commented that he was delighted MPs had immediately understood and accepted the reasonableness of the position deciding to act immediately notwithstanding their obvious pre-occupation with the Elections in the UK.
