To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the US Central Intelligence Agency comments on the 10 September 2002 draft of the UK Government's Dossier, Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction, included comments on the claim that Iraq sought to procure uranium from Africa. 
§ Mr. Rammell
The US Central Intelligence Agency did offer a comment, just before the September dossier was finalised, noting that they had concerns about the credibility of the reference to the supply of uranium from Africa. But they provided no explanation for their concerns. UK officials were confident that the statement in the dossier was based on reliable intelligence. A judgment was therefore made to retain the reference.1085W
