The legal charity Reprieve is asking the British Government to step in and pay the legal costs for Lindsay Sandiford's representation, so that she might be able to appeal against her death sentence.
The Foreign Office says that it is government policy not to pay for the legal representation of British nationals oversees, but it does help with finding that representation.
It makes the point that it was Consular staff in Indonesia that found the lawyer who is prepared to help Lindsay Sandiford.
