Iraq — Set up of judicial inquiry — rejected — 22 Oct 2003 at 18:40
Desmond Swayne MP, New Forest West did not vote.
The majority of MPs voted against a comprehensive independent judicial inquiry into the Iraq war.
The majority of MPs voted against the motion:
- This House
- is concerned at growing public confusion since the summer adjournment as a result of increasingly conflicting accounts of intelligence relating to and events leading up to the recent Iraq war and what has happened since; and
- calls for the setting up of a comprehensive independent judicial inquiry into the Government's handling of the run-up to the war, of the war itself, and of its aftermath, and into the legal advice which it received.
An alternative motion was proposed in its place and voted through immediately afterwards.
