This government has watered down the arms control legislation that we introduced, which I as a Foreign Office minister drove forward. I think a tightening of that would be welcome. An ethical foreign policy is popular. They are common sense popular policies.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Gibraltar

I tried to negotiate a co-sovereignty arrangement with Spain in 2002. This is still the best way forward. In the latest ratcheting up of tensions over Gibraltar, the Royal Navy has ordered a Spanish warship out of the peninsula’s disputed territorial waters.

This is an issue which, as Europe minister, I tried to resolve 15 years ago.feedback
