On 5 March 2010, the ISC sent its Review of the Government's Draft Guidance on Handling Detainees to the Prime Minister. It was intended that the Report would be published, along with the finalised Guidance, before the debate in the House on 18 March. In the intervening period however the Foreign Secretary sought an opportunity to discuss further with us some of the issues in our Report before it was published. That discussion has now taken place, and the Committee has today sent a letter to the Prime Minister reflecting the supplementary evidence which he and the Home Secretary provided. The letter will form an addendum to our Report when it is published in order to provide a full account of the Committee's deliberations and conclusions on the draft Guidance.
