8 September 2014 - The Iraq Inquiry report will "not be a cover-up in any shape or form", the UK's top civil servant has insisted.
Sir Jeremy Heywood told MPs that the report would be "more transparent" than people were expecting and would include material that would not normally be disclosed "in a million years".
The cabinet secretary said the inquiry was "happy" with the documents it could publish after a "delay of sorts".
