Royal Navy In Gibraltar

EDM number 679 in 2013-14, proposed by Jim Dobbin on 06/11/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces, International politics and government and Western Europe.

That this House condemns the recent activity of the Guardia Civil in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters during which the Guardia Civil manoeuvered in a dangerous and provocative manner, causing a collision with HMS Scimitar, whilst she was on regular escort duty for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary; points out that the actions of the Guardia Civil resulted in an armed stand-off; recognises the restraint and professionalism of the Royal Navy, Royal Gibraltar Police and Royal Fleet Auxiliary in the face of Spanish aggression; notes that the aggressive activity at the land border resulted in delays of up to four hours for hard-working people of Gibraltar and Spain; and expresses concern that Spain, a democratic member of the European Union, is acting in this manner.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
