1 - preparing the dossier

Hutton states he does not claim to distinguish tactical or strategic weapons. States that the allegation the government used "45mins" knowing it to be false, is false, as the source provided the information in good faith.

However, does say that the wording was misleading and that No. 10 Downing St attempted to word it as persuasively as possible. Further, Alistair Campbell did take part.

He further says that it was not improper for John Scarlett to have accepted suggestions from No.10, but that the desire of the Prime Minister to have as strong a dossier as possible might have subconsciously influenced the drafters!
"Sexed up" - says the phrase is unclear but the allegation was unfounded.
