Early Day Motion 1088

Uncovering the truth about the Iraq war

CONDUCT OF GOVERNMENT POLICY IN RELATION TO THE WAR AGAINST IRAQ

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.

MPs from all main parties have come together to put forward a motion to review government policy in relation to the war against Iraq.

A committee will be set up, consisting of seven Members of Parliament and, leaving no leaves unturned, they will look into the central question that neither the Hutton and Butler Inquiries addressed – were the Parliament and country misled?

Too many questions remain unanswered and the people have been misled time and time again – this conduct cannot continue to go unchecked. The Members of Parliament backing this motion believe it is their duty to do all they can to hold this Government to account in order to restore the people’s faith in the democratic process.
