§ Mr. Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make further representations to the Greek Government regarding the security aspects at Athens airport; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Eggar
We have been in touch with the Greek authorities on a regular basis over security at Athens airport and earlier this year offered them assistance in improving security. We will continue to keep in close touch, but note that a number of inspections in recent weeks have confirmed that security measures at the airport conform to the internationally recognised standards set down in annex 17 of the Chicago convention.
