Opposition Day — Iraq Inquiry — 11 Jun 2007 at 19:45

Desmond Swayne MP, New Forest West voted in the minority (No).

Those voting Aye passed replaced the words of the previous motion which read:

This House notes the Resolution of 31st October 2006; recognises that there have already been four separate independent committees of inquiry into military action in Iraq; further recognises the importance of learning all possible lessons from military action in Iraq and its aftermath; and therefore declines at this time, whilst the whole effort of the Government and the armed forces is directed towards improving the condition of Iraq, to make a proposal for a further inquiry which would divert attention from this vital task.

This then passed automatically.
