BBC hid Kelly statement that Saddam had WMD

Independent:

"Dr David Kelly believed Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction and might have used them, it was revealed today.

"But government weapons expert Dr Kelly said it could take 'days or weeks' to deploy them and suggested the Iraqi leader would only do it if attacked.

...

"Speaking to BBC's Panorama a month later, in October 2002, Dr Kelly said the Iraqi dictator did pose an 'immediate threat.'

"On WMD, he said: 'Even if they're not actually filled and deployed today, the capability exists to get them filled and deployed within a matter of days and weeks.'

"At Westminster MPs questioned why the BBC had not produced the previously undisclosed interview to the Hutton inquiry or before.

"Labour's Chris Bryant questioned whether the Corporation's governors could have seen it before rushing to defend correspondent Andrew Gilligan's accusations about Number 10."
