The publication of the long-awaited Chilcot inquiry is to be delayed until after the EU referendum, it was reported last night.
David Cameron’s decision to postpone publication of the report into the Iraq War sparked accusations that he was deliberately deferring controversial announcements.

The PM had suggested his plans were to publish the report within two weeks of receiving it.
Reg Keys, whose son Lance Corporal Thomas Keys, 20, died in the war, said the delays were causing further pain.
He said: ‘It has gone on far, far too long and it is just dragging out the agony of the families who want to draw a line under it.’
