Parliament Loose Vote on Iraq Inquiry

The Tories used their opposition day to debate and vote on the Iraq Inquiry being heard in public, their motion was defeated 39 votes. This is of course a debate the government should have had in order to set out the remit of the inquiry, yet alas just created a mess of it.

As a nice touch the government added an amendment, welcoming it's announcement of the "wide ranging and independent" inquiry and was won by 54 votes. They certainly "get it".
