UK Transport Secretary confirms Canaries on amber list as part of Spain

Just for actual confirmation of what we really already knew anyway … UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has confirmed today that the Canaries are not on the green list, they are included with Spain on the amber list. The Canaries will be considered, he said, for green list status next month. Up for consideration are various Greek islands, the Canaries and the Balearics, any of which could be put on the green list even if Greece and Spain remain on the amber one. The list is reviewed every three weeks and no decision has yet been made nor will be until the next review probably on 7 June.
