HC Deb 28 January 2004 vol 417 c293 11.34 am
Mr. Speaker

I have a statement to make.

Right hon. and hon. Members will be aware that Lord Hutton is due to publish his report later this morning on his investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Dr. David Kelly. I am aware of the considerable interest in Lord Hutton's findings. In those exceptional circumstances, I have agreed that the Prime Minister may make a statement on this matter this afternoon. The statement will take place at a convenient moment after 2 pm.
