Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
James Nicholson (ECR)

 Subject:  Border between Gibraltar and Spain
 Answer(s) 

The Commission recently announced that Spain had not infringed the rules on border controls after it sent observers to investigate the lengthy border queues between Gibraltar and Spain. However, the Commission admitted that the additional checks introduced at the border are ‘nevertheless challenging’ and pose ‘technical problems’.

Although the Commission plans to review the situation in six months, can it state already what measures it will take to ensure that the single market is not compromised by unnecessary restrictions on the free movement of people, goods, services and capital between Member States?
