Gibraltar squadron?

The British nuclear submarine HMS Tireless approaches the port of Gibraltar on April 2nd.

Spain's ambassador to the UK has been summoned to the Foreign Office following a "serious incursion" into British-controlled waters off Gibraltar. David Lidington, a Foreign Office minister, said that the activities of two Spanish ships off the coast of the British territory were not only "unlawful" but also dangerous. "According to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the waters around Gibraltar are indisputably British territorial waters, under United Kingdom sovereignty, in which only the United Kingdom has the right to exercise jurisdiction," he said..........................................................................................
Spanish activity in Gibraltar waters has led to calls by British MPs for the Royal Navy to boost its presence around the Rock. (Today's Telegraph)

Q. Does this mean that an FTRS post is about to be established in Gib??
