Parliamentary questions
31 October 2013
E-010034/2013
Answer given by Mr Barnier on behalf of the Commission

1. Currently there are no infringement proceedings pending against the United Kingdom concerning the non-transposition of Directives on financial services in Gibraltar.

2. Council Directive 2011/16/EU of 15 February 2011 on administrative cooperation in the field of taxation and replacing Directive 77/799/EEC was transposed in Gibraltar by means of the Income Tax Act 2010 (Amendment) Regulations 2013, which were published in the Second Supplement to the Gibraltar Gazette No 3977 of 17 January 2013. The said legislation entered into force on 1 January 2013.

3. Directive 2005/60/EC on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purpose of money laundering and terrorist financing and Directive 2006/70/EC laying down implementing measures for Directive 2005/60/EC were transposed via two legal acts (No 37 of 2007, and No 38 of 2007, both published in the Gibraltar Gazette on 20 December 2007).

4. As regards all Directives, the Commission points out that, pursuant to the Treaties, it initiates infringement proceedings only against Member States. This being so, it can state that in this instance, as at 30 September 2013, there were 14 cases pending against the United Kingdom for failure to notify national transposition measures.
