The Government have asked the United Nations special commission and the International Atomic Energy Authority for confidential details of any evidence of involvement by British companies in Iraq's weapons for mass destruction programmes. Any indication of wrongdoing will be urgently investigated and if export controls have been breached, it will, if appropriate, be a matter for the courts.
