Gibraltar Minister in London for Brexit discussions

The Gibraltar delegation and Sir David Attenborough

THERE seems to be at least one Gibraltar Minister travelling somewhere all of the time in this Brexit Year countdown.

The latest is Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, Dr John Cortes who has chaired a working session of the Gibraltar-UK Brexit Environment Working Group at Gibraltar House in London where a large number of matters were discussed with officials from DEFRA and the Foreign Office.

That evening, the Minister and the CEO of his Department of the Environment Dr Liesl Torres were guests at an event at the British Museum of Natural History hosted by Secretary of State for the Environment Michael Gove to promote the protection of the oceans.

Minister Cortes took the opportunity to talk to Sir David Attenborough, with whom he had worked in Gibraltar on the Life of Birds TV series. Sir David recalled the visit fondly and showed great interest in progress being made in environmental protection in Gibraltar.
