Iraq: Weapons

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Prime Minister what source of information was cited in intelligence reports to the Government immediately before the decision to go to war with Iraq in March 2003 and subsequently refuted as a reliable source of information; what assessment he has made of whether this source of information existed; whether this source was a case of the UK intelligence service being misled; what the nature was of the subsequent inquiries which led to the refutation of this source of information; and if he will make a statement. (152615)

These matters have been examined during the course of the Butler Review and other inquiries, and covered during debates and statements on Iraq and in briefings by my predecessor's official spokesman. All relevant information has been placed in the public domain in as far as that could be done without prejudicing national security.
