§ Mr. Cameron
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations 1175W his Department has made to the Government of Oman about a constituent, Jonathan Lincoln Brown; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
Mr. Brown is involved in a private legal dispute. We have assisted him where we properly can in a number of matters. These included representations to the Omani Government requesting them to consider Mr. Brown's case compassionately because of his mother's ill health and subsequent death. Our ambassador raised the case with the Omani Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The embassy were also instrumental in ensuring Mr. Brown received an appeal date. We remain in contact with Mr. Brown and are providing all proper consular assistance.
