Opposition Day — Iraq Inquiry — 11 Jun 2007 at 19:45
The majority of MPs voted against the principle that there should be an inquiry into the Iraq War by an independent committee of Privy Counsellors.
Those voting No rejected the motion which read:
- This House supports the principle that there should be an inquiry by an independent committee of Privy Counsellors 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 and to make recommendations on the lessons for the future.
The words were replaced by an alternative motion in the next vote.
