Chilcot inquiry into Iraq war to be published after general election

By Gavin Cordon

The long-awaited Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war will not be published until after the general election in May, it has emerged.

The inquiry chairman, Sir John Chilcot, will set out his reasons for the further delay in an exchange of letters with Prime Minister David Cameron tomorrow, according to Government sources.

The inquiry was originally set up by the then prime minister Gordon Brown in 2009 and took public evidence from its last witness in 2011.
