Broadcaster IB3 covered Simon Manley's speech in Palma. | IB3


Majorca's media, in addition to the Bulletin, was out in force this morning to report on the speech by British ambassador Simon Manley at the Bulletin's breakfast at the Meliá Palma Bay Hotel. Brexit was the main topic, and for the television broadcaster IB3, it was mainly concerned with any impact of Brexit on tourism. Manley suggested that tourism will not be affected.

An issue unrelated to Brexit was the situation with false claims for sickness compensation made by British holidaymakers. Manley was asked about this by two members of the audience at the breakfast and noted that the UK ministry of justice is planning legislation to tackle the scams.
