On this occasion it was the turn of the British delegation to advance four proposals: 1 The internal self-government granted to Gibraltar should be exercised by municipal authorities instead of by an Executive Council and a Legislative Council. 2 2 Spain would be offered facilities at the airport, both for civil and military planes, and in the dockyard. 4 If nothing else, the two rounds of direct talks between the British and Spanish Governments over the future of Gibraltar had ended the exchange of Notes which had been so prominent a feature of the previous year and facilitated a clear statement of the respective positions that each Government had adopted over the Colony’s future.

On 6 November, the British Embassy in Madrid asked the Spanish Foreign Ministry for an explanation of the new frontier restrictions only for the British Ambassador, Sir George Labouchere, to be informed by Señor Castiella, on 9 November that the frontier delays were not the deliberate result of policy.
