Chances are that if you emailed it, your recipient opened it directly
from his/her email program. This often creates a read-only copy in
temporary storage. This is not a problem with the document. You need to
tell your recipient to *save* the file from within his/her email client
first, then check that the saved file is not read-only (right-click,
Properties, Read-only under Attributes at the bottom, on Windows 7),
and then open it in LO.

Hope this helps.

How do I make the file Read-Write   in order that he be able work the
file at his end.

(I’ve consulted LibreOffice Help… the instructions under Read only
don’t work…. (Select) is greyed out.)
