Another Attempt to Delay Release of David Kelly's Autopsy Records/ Daily Mail

In January, the Daily Mail revealed that Lord Hutton ordered David Kelly's post-mortem records to be barred from public access for 70 years. Hutton then responded that he would make the records available to physicians conducting a public inquiry on the death.

Instead, the UK's Ministry of Justice said the request for information would be treated under the UK's Freedom of Information Act, which gave the government the right to refuse access.

After questioning of the MoJ by the Daily Mail, the UK government has now said it will deal with the request "under normal terms."
