'Disappointed' David Cameron tells Iraq inquiry head to 'expedite' report


Cameron 'Frustrated' by the Iraq Inquest Report Delay

David Cameron has told told the head of the inquiry into the Iraq war he is "disappointed" that the findings will not be published until next summer and urged him to "expedite" the final stages.

Sir John Chilcot announced earlier that his team expects to complete the text of its two million word report by the week commencing April 18 and aims to publish it by June or July 2016.

But in a letter to the inquiry chairman, the Prime Minister said the families of those who served in Iraq would share his disappointment at the timescale.

He wrote: "I recognise that you have a significant task, but would welcome any further steps you can take to expedite the final stages of the inquiry."
