GIBRALTAR AND UK

DISCUSS QUARANTINE PROPOSALS The United Kingdom Government has announced the implementation of a 14day quarantine regime for all air arrivals, with very limited exemptions. The quarantine measure applies to all UK citizens, regardless of their point of origin, and therefore as presently applied will include air arrivals from Gibraltar. There is an exemption for passengers travelling into the UK for medical treatment and for an accompanying escort. Those who travel to the UK for work on a weekly basis are also excluded. The Chief Minister spoke to the Minister for the European Neighbourhood Wendy Morton MP, in advance of the announcement, and has made specific proposals for the possible exemption of Gibraltar and these will now be discussed further. The UK plans to apply the measure starting on 8th June.

ELECTRIC SCOOTERS COMMAND PAPER Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar has today published a command paper for a bill for an Act to “regulate the operation of personal light electric transporters, to penalise their unlawful operation, to provide for the seizure and detention of such transporters in cases of unsafe operation, and for related purposes”. The legislation seeks to define and regulate the proper use of personal light electric transporters such as e-scooters.
