Question for written answer E-000786-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Catherine Bearder (ALDE)

 Subject:  Border checks in Gibraltar
 Answer in writing 

1. Is the Commission aware that the primary reason for the delays to EU nationals and others wishing to enter or exit Gibraltar through its land frontier with Spain is not the physical infrastructure on the ground, but the manner in which the Spanish authorities conduct their controls by stopping vehicles in the green lane?

Therefore, the infrastructure works currently under way on the Spanish side of the border will achieve nothing without a change in procedures.

2. How does the Commission propose to ensure that the Spanish authorities fine ‐tune their risk-based profiling , and how does it propose to ensure that Spain proceeds to the 100% elimination of checks on vehicles?
