Iraq — Weapons of Mass Destruction Inquiry — 4 Jun 2003 at 16:31

The majority of MPs voted against an independent inquiry into the handling of intelligence on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. A replacement motion noted the Intelligence and Security Committee is the appropriate body to carry out any inquiry.

The majority of MPs voting voted against the motion:[1]

  • This House
  • recalls the Prime Minister's assertion that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction capable of being used at 45 minutes' notice;
  • further recalls the Government's contention that these weapons posed an imminent danger to the United Kingdom and its forces;
  • notes that to date no such weapons have been found; and
  • calls for an independent inquiry into the handling of the intelligence received, its assessment and the decisions made by ministers based upon it.

A new motion was proposed in its place:[2]

  • This House:
  • believes that the Intelligence and Security Committee[3] established by Parliament is the appropriate body to carry out any inquiry into intelligence relating to Iraq; and
  • notes in relation to Iraq's disarmament obligations the terms of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1483[4]

And this passed without a vote.
