Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster David Lidington visited Madrid, Spain to discuss the relationship between the UK and Spain on the 18 May 2018.
He met the Spanish Foreign Secretary Alfonso Dastis to talk about the deep bilateral relationship between the UK and Spain and to reiterate the UK’s commitment to forge even greater ties after the UK left the European Union.
The Ministers discussed the practical implications of the UK’s departure, including for Gibraltar where the priority remained to provide certainty to the thousands of people and businesses affected. Mr Lidington reiterated that the UK was confident that by engaging in regular conversations with the Government of Gibraltar and other EU partners - including Spain - all parties would find a way forward that benefitted everyone living and working in the region.
