Iraq — Judicial Inquiry — Not necessary — 22 Oct 2003 at 18:59
The majority of MPs voted against a further inquiry into the war in Iraq.
Those voting Aye passed the motion:
- This House
- notes that the Intelligence and Security Committee, established by Parliament by statute, and the appropriate body to consider the intelligence relating to Iraq, and the Foreign Affairs Committee have both carried out inquiries into matters relating to the decision to go to war in Iraq; further notes that substantial oral and written evidence, by and on behalf of the Government, was provided to both inquiries;
- believes that there is no case for a further inquiry, including a judicial inquiry; and
- further believes that, following the passage of UN Security Council Resolution 1511 on 17th October 2003, attention should now be focused on building a better future for Iraq and its people, and on offering full support to the coalition, including British military and civilian personnel, and the United Nations in this endeavour.
