Statement on the death of Dr David Kelly

10 June 2011

Attorney-General, Dominic Grieve, made a statement to the House of Commons on Thursday 9 June on whether an application should be made to the High Court for an inquest into the death of Dr David Kelly.

Dominic Grieve told MPs that he had concluded that '...the evidence that Dr Kelly took his own life is overwhelmingly strong', and therefore he would not be making an application to the High Court for an inquest.

Watch and read the statement and the views expressed by MPs on Parliament TV and in Commons Hansard.
