Motion text

That this House notes that in response to concerns raised by honourable Members about the validity of the case made for war, the Prime Minister referred to House to the findings of the Iraq Survey Group (ISG), for example stating on 21st January that it was the job of the Iraq Survey Group to find out what has happened, which it will do; notes that the ISG makes it clear that it found no evidence that Iraq sought uranium abroad after the first Gulf War in 1991, stating that it has uncovered no information to support allegations of Iraqi pursuit of uranium from abroad in the post-Operation Desert Storm era; further notes that the ISG report goes on to state it it had found only one offer of uranium to Baghdad since 1991, an approach which Iraq appeared to have turned down; further notes that the Government has provided no evidence to rebut this finding but is now relying on the conclusion of the Government appointed Butler Committee; but notes that Lord Butler's conclusions on the uranium claim only refer to the credibility of UK and US assertions made prior to 7th March 2003, the date the International Atomic Energy Agency revealed forged intelligence documents; and therefore calls on the Government to provide new evidence to counter the Iraq Survey Group findings or withdraw their isolated claim that Iraq sought to procure uranium from Africa.
