Witness: General Sir John Reith
Subject/Role: Chief of Joint Operations Aug 2001-Jul 2004
After considerating representations from General Sir John Reith, the Committee decided that there was a genuine personal reason he would have difficulty appearing in a broadcast evidence session. The Committee agreed to see General Reith in private and to publish the evidence. Five words have been redacted on the grounds of national security. This is unrelated to the reason why the hearing was held in private.
