HC Deb 22 July 2004 vol 424 cc463-4W
Llew Smith

To ask the Prime Minister what the source was for the statement he made on 20 November 2003 that the remains of 400,000 people had been discovered in mass graves in Iraq [186040]

The Prime Minister

Human rights organisations, forensic groups and the UN have estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of people believed to be buried in mass graves. What is clear is that until a systematic investigation of Iraq's 259 reported mass gravesites is completed we are unlikely to know the complete picture.
