HC Deb 18 December 2001 vol 377 c207W
Mr. Fallon

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps UK posts abroad are taking to ensure that copies of the Home Office pack for Victims of Homicide, 3rd edition, are being made available to families of UK subjects murdered abroad. [23386]

Mr. Bradshaw

The FCO does all it can to help the families of British nationals murdered overseas. The needs of each family are different. We will usually give the families leaflets published by the FCO on "Victims of Crime Abroad" and "Death Overseas" and put them in touch with relevant agencies in the UK who may be able to help them (such as the local police and victim support). The Home Office pack Victims of Homicide, 3rd edition is designed for the relatives of those murdered in the UK and is handed out at the discretion of the police.
