President Armengol and the minister for social services and co-operation, Fina Santiago, yesterday visited the hostel in Playa de Palma that is being adapted to receive refugees due to be allocated to the Balearics. They were looking at how work on the hostel is proceeding, but the government hasn't as yet received any formal notification from the national department for immigration and emigration requesting that the Balearics assist with the refugee effort. Nevertheless, the president pointed out that preparations were being made and that the Balearics would be acting in accordance with the management of the refugees by the state and Europe.
