Guernsey’s relationship with EU will change if UK’s does, says chief minister
Thursday 24th January 2013, 2:00PM GMT.
CHANGES to the UK’s relationship with Europe could have an impact on Guernsey, the chief minister has said.
His comment follows Prime Minister David Cameron’s pledge that the UK will hold a referendum on its future in Europe before 2018.
Deputy Peter Harwood said the UK’s relationship with the EU was a matter for its government and its people.
‘We will watch any developments closely, and where appropriate we will discuss them with the UK Government,’ he said.
Guernsey’s special relationship with the EU was formed in protocol three of the UK’s Treaty of Accession.
The island is not a separate member state or an associate member of the European Union.
