asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress has been made by the Greek authorities in bringing to justice those who, on 8 June 2000, murdered Brigadier Stephen Saunders, the United Kingdom Defence Attaché in Athens; whether they are satisfied with this progress; and, if not, what action they intend to take.
