To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what position each official in his Department seconded to the Iraq Committee of Inquiry held between January 2001 and December 2003; and for what matters each was responsible in each such year. (303146)

I refer the right hon. Member to the answer given to him by the Minister for the Cabinet Office (Tessa Jowell), on 3 December 2009, Official Report, columns 974-75W.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether his Department has provided briefing papers to the Iraq Inquiry for its oral evidence sessions. (305778)

The Prime Minister has said that the inquiry will have access to all Government papers. My Department has provided papers and information to the inquiry, including, at the inquiry’s request, a briefing paper on the no fly zones subsequently used at the inquiry’s opening hearing. It is for the inquiry, which is independent, to decide how it uses these papers.
