HC Deb 10 December 1998 vol 322 c282W
Mr. Mackinlay

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if any officials in his Department saw a copy of Peter Penfold's letter of 30 December 1997 to Miss Grant prior to 6 April 1997. [63269]

Mr. Tony Lloyd

Sir Thomas Legg's Report (paragraph 5.29) states thatin spite of searches there, it [Mr. Penfold's letter of 30 December 1997] cannot be traced at the FCO, and seems never to have arrived".

Legg records (paragraph 6.59) that the FCO (Equatorial Africa Department) finally obtained a copy from Freetown on 6 April.
