Now we shall see what there is to see. The Government has been ordered to release the minutes of 2003 Cabinet meetings when the invasion of Iraq was discussed. Skip related content Order to release Iraq Cabinet minutes The Information Tribunal upheld a decision by the Information Commissioner that details of the sessions on March 13 and 17 should be disclosed. The meetings considered the highly controversial issue of whether the invasion was allowed under international law. In its ruling, the Tribunal said: "We have decided that the public interest in maintaining the confidentiality of the formal minutes of two Cabinet meetings at which ministers decided to commit forces to military action in Iraq did not... outweigh the public interest in disclosure." The arguments in favour of keeping the formulation of Government policy secret and preserving the principle of collective responsibility were defeated in this "exceptional case", the ruling said. The Tribunal said its decision had been "difficult" and carried by a majority rather than unanimously.
