Sir John Chilcot served on the Privy Council until 2004, when he retired. From 1999 through 2004, he worked for MI5 and MI6 as a “staff counsellor.” Despite his involvement in the discredited Butler report, he was nominated to oversee the Iraq War Inquiry in 2009. Sir John Chilcot was the president of The Police Foundation, the UK’s independent policing think tank. In the 1994 New Year Honours, the Queen awarded him the Knight Commander (KCB) and Knight Grand Cross (GCB) for services to policing.
Sorry to hear of the death of John Chilcott. He
made a very positive contribution to starting to improve the prison service
in England and Wales.

Sir John Chilcot obituary. They thought he was a safe pair of hands, he turned out much better than that. He lived a life of public service and his nation is grateful.
