Status: rolling inquiry
The Committee maintains a ‘rolling inquiry’ into the FCO’s responsibilities for the UK’s Overseas Territories and periodically takes evidence from the relevant FCO Minister.
The Committee held an evidence session in December 2012 which focused on the Government’s Overseas Territories White Paper, and a further, follow-up, session in December 2013 following the second annual Overseas Territories Joint Ministerial Council.
The Committee held an evidence session on 5 March 2014 with the Chief Minister of Gibraltar, during the Committee’s visit to Gibraltar in March 2014. The evidence session fits into the Committee’s rolling inquiry into Overseas Territories. It followed an evidence session held with the FCO Minster Mark Simmonds in December 2013, and sought to explore some of the issues that were raised in that session, including the overall UK-Gibraltar relationship, and the current situation with regard to ongoing disputes with Spain.
