£767 bill for Chilcot report copies waived for families of Iraq war dead

Updated: 

The families of service personnel killed in the Iraq War will not have to pay for copies of the long-awaited report into the conflict, Downing Street has said.

A Number 10 spokesman said there was "no question" of families having to pay for copies of the Chilcot report, which will be published on July 6.

Families had been told they faced being charged £767 for full hard copies of the 2.6 million word, 12-volume report.

But a Number 10 spokesman said: "There is no question of families of service personnel who died in Iraq having to pay for copies of the Chilcot report."
