That should set things up nicely for the commons debate next Wednesday in which the Tories will again call for an inquiry.
A full public inquiry into the decision to invade Iraq is needed because "a lot of facts still have to come to light", a former diplomat has told MPs.
Carne Ross said it was "disgraceful" of ministers to "pretend" the Butler and Hutton inquiries told the full story.
Rather worryingly, the Guardian says that:
Gordon Brown has promised to consider an inquiry after all the troops come home from Iraq next year.I think this is a mistake, as Brown has never said that all the troops must come home. Nearly all of them are due to leave in the next four months, with a contingent staying on long term. Surely Brown won't use a long-term deployment as an excuse?
