Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Chilcot Inquiry

Mike Wood: Will the Minister assure the House that he remains committed to the independence of the Chilcot inquiry and that he will provide any resources that the inquiry needs to complete its work without further delay?

 

Matthew Hancock The Paymaster General and Minister for the Cabinet Office

Yes, we have offered extra resources to the Chilcot inquiry in case they are needed. We now have a timetable for a timetable for the release of the inquiry, and Sir John will write to the Prime Minister by 3 November to set out that timetable.
