Is it the case that Libre Office is as 'feature packed' as Ms Office, 
or are there some important features that will be missing from Libre
Office when compared to Ms Office?

This really depends upon your specific use case, and what else you will
be using in conjunction with LibO, or MSO.

If all you are doing is using the basic office suite, with no additional
templates, extensions, etc, then both programs have features that the
other lacks, and both programs have features that are more akin to bugs,
than functional items.

OTOH, if you are using templates for MSO that have an MSRP of
US$100,000, then LibO will be a horrible fail for you.
Likewise, if you are using software that expects to interact with MSO,
the LibO will be a fail, for you.

On the gripping hand, if you are using software that expects to interact
with LibO, then MSO will be a disastrous fail for you.

This is true. I can't trigger the Blue Screen of Death when opening
documents with LibO, when opening the same document with MSO results in
an instant Blue Screen of Death. As such, LibO is obviously
dysfunctional, and inferior to MSO, for doing responding in the
appropriate manner.
(Fourteen years on, and the same documents that gave MSO97 on Win2K the
Blue Screen of Death, trigger the Blue Screen of Death with MSO2013 and
Win 8.0.)
