Select Committee on Foreign Affairs Second Special Report


Letter to Rt Hon Robin Cook, Foreign Secretary, from the Chairman of the Committee, 14 March 2001

At its meeting yesterday the Committee decided that I should write requesting your observations on allegations made in the forthcoming book by Nicholas Jones, extracts from which were printed in last Sunday's Mail on Sunday newspaper, in the light of the answer to a written Parliamentary question from a then member of this Committee, David Wilshire, with particular reference to the phrase "In advance of the publication of the report on 9 February, we made no comment to the media about the report, except in response to leaks by others to the press." (Official Report, 23 February 1999, column 259.)
