Bill for referendum to be put to Parliament says Picardo

The Chief Minister stated in his New Years message that “January, Parliament will also deal with a Bill to create a law in Gibraltar for the Referendum on membership of the European Union.
I have today written to the Speaker, Mr Canepa, informing him of my intention to deal with that Bill as an urgent one so that it can be passed this month.
Gibraltar will therefore be ready to hold a referendum at any time that the Prime Minister, David Cameron, may decide.
In this respect, we are continuing our work of preparing our strategy should the result of that referendum be that the UK decides it will negotiate its exit from the European Union.”
