The Minister for Europe, David Lidington MP.

07-06-2010

Palma.—David  Lidington PC  is a  Conservative Party politician, who has been the Member of Parliament for Aylesbury since 1992.
He is currently a Minister of State at the Foreign Office, serving as Minister for Europe and  this responsibility includes the overseas territories of Gibraltar and Akrotiri and Dhekelia in Cyprus.
Yesterday, he admitted to the Bulletin that the dispute between Spain and Britain over Gibraltar is a “long standing one” but said that Spain’s current attitude to The Rock is “regrettable and misguided.”
Only last week, he had to call the Spanish Ambassador in London into the Foreign Office to explain why two Spanish vessels, one of which,  the research vessel Ramon Magalef was in Majorca over the weekend, entered British territorial waters around Gibraltar and began carrying out surveys.
