Another Side to Paradise
As thousands of Brits head off on holiday in Greece, Chris Bryant, Foreign Office Minister with responsibility for consular affairs, visited Athens and Corfu on 14 and 15 July to look at the preparations British consular staff have made to help Brits who find themselves in trouble, and to keep up the strong and vital relationship Britain enjoys with the Greek authorities in this area.
In advance of the visit, Chris Bryant said: “Every year millions of British holiday makers come to Greece and have a great holiday, but every year some have bad experiences which could have been prevented. With the close co-operation of the local authorities, we are distributing thousands of posters, leaflets, beer mats, and information cards across Greece and the wider Mediterranean. The key message is enjoy your holiday, but stay aware and take care”.
