The GSD’s view on the BREXIT referendum – as was the majority position in Gibraltar – was that we
should remain in the EU. Post the BREXIT referendum the dynamic has shifted to negotiating the best
outcome for Gibraltar that would see us get the benefit of any good transitional and permanent
arrangements agreed between the UK and the EU. Those efforts should continue and they deserve the
greatest focus.

If in the context of the ongoing political process in the UK a so-called People’s Vote acquires momentum
which would allow people to choose between accepting the deal worked out by the UK or remaining
within the EU we would support such a referendum. We recognise, for the moment, that this appears to
be politically unlikely as circumstances presently exist in the UK. We do not therefore set our political stall
on this but would welcome it if it means that we would have the chance to have a second vote to seek to
remain in the EU.
