Asked if the Prime Minister agreed with the Deputy Prime Minister that there needed to be an inquiry into the Iraq Wikileaks, and if the Prime Minister could potentially ask Sir John Chilcot to extend the Iraq Inquiry’s remit and look in to specific cases involving British troops, the PMS said that what the Iraq Inquiry looked at was up to them. Our longstanding position was that there was no place for mistreatment of detainees, and we investigated any allegation made against our troops as a matter of course.

Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned that the information made public by Wikileaks could endanger British troops, the PMS said that he would not talk about the specifics of these documents, but clearly this kind of leak could put the lives of UK service personnel or those of our allies at risk; this was why we condemned these sorts of leaks.
