I understand that the Hurndall family is pursuing a private compensation claim. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office cannot get involved in negotiations for compensation, but has raised the case of Tom Hurndall with the Israeli Government on many occasions.
My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary last met the family of Tom Hurndall on 6 July. The Foreign Secretary and the family agreed to wait for an Israeli response to my noble and learned Friend the Attorney-General’s requests for information in May before considering possible next steps.
