Iraq: Detainees

Volume 479: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what proportion of the contents of the review of detention practices in Iraq and Afghanistan he disclosed in his letter to the hon. Member for Chichester of 7 July 2008. (219251)

17 per cent. of the report on the review of detention practices was disclosed in my letter of 7 July. If the annexes are added, then about 4 per cent. of the overall review concerning detention practices was disclosed. As I explained in my letter, much of the information requested was exempt from release under the Freedom of Information Act.
