Iraq — Select committee inquiry — to be set up — 31 Oct 2006 at 18:53
The majority of MPs voted against an inquiry into the Iraq war by a select committee of Privy Counsellors.
Those voting No rejected the words of the motion, which read:
- That this House believes that there should be a select committee of seven honourable Members, being members of Her Majesty's Privy Council, to review the way in which the responsibilities of Government were discharged in relation to Iraq and all matters relevant thereto, in the period leading up to military action in that country in March 2003 and in its aftermath.
They replaced it with a new motion in Division 331
