Iraq: Weapons of Mass Destruction

Volume 690: debated on Wednesday 21 March 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their current assessment of Iraq's ability to deploy weapons of mass destruction before March 2003. [HL2682]

As my noble friend knows, the Government's policies on Iraq have been scrutinised at great length by four separate inquiries, along with a great deal of discussion in both Houses of Parliament.

The Government have acknowledged that Iraq did not possess stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction in March 2003 and therefore could not deploy them.
