To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the remains of the British citizen Mr Alec Collett have been identified in Lebanon; and, if so, what plans they have for their return to his family. [HL183]

The UN has taken the lead on organising and funding this recovery operation including liaising with UK police and Mr Collett's family to ensure that his remains are returned to the UK.
