The highly regarded medical research journal, The Lancet, has published an analysis of government under-reporting of British casualties in the Iraq war. The research was conducted by Professor Sheila Bird of the MRC Biostatistics Unit at Cambridge, and illustrates the difficulties in trying to obtain accurate information from the government. It also confirms that casualty figures are almost certain to be much higher than stated by John Reid, the Minister of Defence.
