* Sir John Chilcot must wait for issue of 'sensitive documents' to be resolved
* Home Office minister has accused former PM of 'disgrace to democracy'
* Iraq records have yet to be revealed almost a decade on from start of war
14 May 2014 - Tony Blair was blamed yesterday for a delay in publishing an official report into the Iraq War.
Norman Baker, a Home Office minister, accused the former premier of trying to block the release of secret communications between him and George W Bush.
He has told Sir John Chilcot, who is heading the inquiry, of his deep concern at the length of time it is taking.
A letter from the former Whitehall mandarin – seen by the Daily Mail – shows that publication of notes sent by Mr Blair to former US president Bush, and records of their conversations, is an issue.
'We continue to work toward delivering our report to the Prime Minister at the earliest possible date,’ he told Mr Baker, adding that discussions ‘about the disclosure of sensitive documents are not yet concluded’.
Mr Baker said he was dismayed by Sir John’s confirmation that Mr Blair’s messages to the White House are causing a delay. read more>>>
