The PMOS advised journalists that Jack Straw would be fronting FCO Questions in the House tomorrow and would also make a Statement on Iraq in which he would refer to the current situation on the ground and the ISG report. No doubt the murder of Ken Bigley would also be raised.

Asked for a reaction to remarks attributed to the former Malaysian Prime Minister who had reportedly said that the Prime Minister had been too impatient to wait for Saddam Hussein to die, the PMOS said that he wasn’t aware of the precise comments. That said, we had set out the reasons for going to war many many times. In fact the last time he had done so had been this morning when he had explained again that we had taken action as a result of Saddam’s continued defiance of UN Resolutions, including Resolution 1441.
