[The following are questions and answers as recorded in House of Commons Hansard for this date in 2012:]
Mr [Denis] MacShane: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he is taking to ensure that the Lord Advocate's letter to the Libyan Government on Lockerbie is acted upon. 
Alistair Burt [Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs]: Our ambassador in Libya has encouraged the Libyan authorities to respond to the Lord Advocate's letter requesting Libyan co-operation with the Lockerbie investigation under the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty between the UK and Libya when he handed the letter over to the Libyan Foreign Minister on 21 February. The Government will continue to press the Libyan Transitional Government for a positive and timely response.
Mr MacShane: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will ask the Libyan Government to publish all documents, letters, records of meetings and other material relating to the Lockerbie bombing. 
Alistair Burt: The Government will continue to urge the Libyan Transitional Government to co-operate with the Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary's open investigation into the Lockerbie bombing, including allowing access to information and individuals relevant to their investigation.
[RB: Since the statement in February 2011 by former Libyan Justice Minister Mustafa Abdel-Jalil that Gaddafi personally ordered the Lockerbie bombing, increasingly desperate calls have been made for the Libyan authorities to supply the documentary or other evidence demonstrating this. No evidence has been forthcoming.]
