Iraq: Weapons

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 28 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs with reference to the answer of 11 November 2008, Official Report, column 883W, on Iraq: weapons, what reports he has received from the International Atomic Energy Agency of its discussions with the orginators of the intelligence. (244151)

As I said in my answer to my hon. Friend on 11 November 2008, Official Report, column 883W, we understand that the originators of the intelligence discussed the issue with the International Atomic Energy Authority (IAEA), but have not received any further reports on this matter. Intelligence is exchanged on a confidential basis and we would not expect the IAEA to discuss with us such information it had received from a third country.
