UK statement following the meeting of the Withdrawal Agreement Specialised Committee on the Protocol on Gibraltar, 27 May, via video conference.

The first meeting of the Withdrawal Agreement Specialised Committee on implementation of the Protocol on Gibraltar was held today, co-chaired by officials from the UK Government and European Commission.

The Government of Gibraltar was represented by the Attorney General.

The Committee was established by the Withdrawal Agreement to facilitate the application and implementation of the Protocol on Gibraltar.

The UK and EU exchanged updates on progress against the key elements of the Protocol: Citizens’ Rights, Environmental Matters, Police and Customs cooperation and Fiscal Matters.

The UK is committed to ensuring the implementation of the Protocol to provide continued security and prosperity to Gibraltar and the region.

The UK and the EU reaffirmed their commitment to continued progress towards the commitments outlined in the Protocol.

The co-chairs agreed that the Committee will meet again towards the end of the year to follow the progress of implementation.

Today’s discussions in no way affect UK sovereignty over Gibraltar, which remains unchanged.
