Andrew questions Chilcot Report

Andrew, who defied the whip to vote against the Iraq War in 2003 and later served there, has tabled a series of questions to the Cabinet Office today in advance of the long awaited Chilcot Report expected on 6 July.

Andrew said:

'Chilcot has become a byword for delay and missed opportunity.  His recommendations must now be handled quickly and comprehensively.

'Any political leader or public servant judged to have been at serious fault by Chilcot must be dealt with appropriately given the scale of human misery caused by the Iraq war. Options should include, for example, the removal or denial of honours, given recent precedent in banking.

'It's important to establish what will be done to support veterans and families who may be distressed by Chilcot's revelations.'
