Prime Minister announces Iraq war inquiry

16 June 2009

Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, made a statement to the House of Commons on the achievements of British troops in Iraq, the new relationship being built with Iraq and on plans for an inquiry into the conflict

Oral statements are made after Question Time (or at 11am on a Friday). The statements normally relate to matters of policy or government actions. At the end of a statement MPs can respond or question the government minister on its contents. Commons statements will normally be repeated in the Lords at an appropriate time to fit in with the main business.
