I don't know how to access the Library material, but if it is anything like the answer to the second PQ, one won't be any the wiser! Yet again there is no accountability. Julian Lewis (New Forest) has been one of the MPs pursuing the vetting of Al. Campbell.

(See warmwell on the vetting procedure and how Alastair Campbell appears never to have been adequately vetted.)

Butler Report

Dr. Julian Lewis: To ask the Prime Minister when he will fulfil the undertaking he gave in the House on 20 July 2004, Official Report, column 204, to write to the hon. Member for New Forest, East stating (a) the reason for the lack of substantive mention of GCHQ in the Butler Report, (b) whether signals intelligence relevant to the Iraq crisis was received and (c) why such intelligence was not included in the report. [189719]

The Prime Minister: I have written to the hon. Gentleman. Copies of the letter have been placed in the Libraries of the House.

Mr. Marshall-Andrews: To ask the Prime Minister pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for East Carmarthen and Dinefwr (Adam Price) of 21 July 2004, Official Report, column 285W, on Iraq, on what date and at which stage during the Butler Report he was informed of the withdrawal of the Iraq Intelligence Reports to which paragraph 405 of Lord Butler's Report refers. [190426]

The Prime Minister: I have nothing further to add to my answer to the hon. Member for East Carmarthen and Dinefwr (Adam Price) on 21 July 2004, Official Report, column 285W.


More ducking of the issue here. Thank goodness MPs are still pursuing this, but Blair just makes a mockery of the PQ procedure.

Llew Smith: To ask the Prime Minister if he will instruct the Attorney-General to evaluate the statement made by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan on 15 September that the invasion of Iraq was illegal and contrary to the Charter of the United Nations. [190140]

The Prime Minister: The Attorney-General has made his view clear on this matter. I refer the hon. Member to the Solicitor-General's answer of 17 March 2003, Official Report, columns 515516W, which set out the Attorney-General's view of the legal basis for the use of force against Iraq. I also refer the hon. Member to the press notice issued by the Attorney-General's office on 14 July 2004.
