Letter: A little something for Rhodes scholars

Sir: Your comments on Bath Council's dilemma over the choice of street names ('Street name stirs up social unrest', 15 June) reminds me of a recent visit to Rhodes, where there is a street bearing the name E. Bevin in Greek and English.

Rhodes is part of the Dodecanese group of islands that been part of the Ottoman empire, and was ceded to Italy after the First World War. The islands were united with the rest of Greece in 1947 at the end of the last war.

Naming the street was an honour bestowed on Ernie Bevin, who was British Foreign Minister at the time.

Yours faithfully,


Lymm, Cheshire
