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

The majority of MPs voted against holding an inquiry into the Iraq war at this time.

Those voting Aye passed replaced the words of the previous motion with the following:

  • 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 amended motion then passed automatically.
