I currently have no plans to meet with relatives of Brian Peters and Malcolm Rennie. Following the conclusion of the New South Wales coroner's inquest, Foreign and Commonwealth Office consular officials have been in contact with the families of both men to update them on developments in December 2007, and will continue to liaise with them on any future developments.
In 2002, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) documents relating to the incident were released exceptionally early to permit the relatives of Malcolm Rennie and Brian Peters to see at first hand what the FCO knew about the deaths. The FCO holds no further pertinent information. My hon. Friend the then Minister of State for Trade, Investment and Foreign Affairs (Mr. Mike O'Brien) met the relatives of Mr. Rennie and Mr. Peters in September 2003 and March 2004. In December 2007, FCO consular officials wrote to the families of both men to update them on developments following the conclusion of the New South Wales coroner's inquest.
