London: A UK parliamentary panel wants access to information not made public in a US Senate report that may pertain to Britain's role in the interrogation and rendition of terror suspects following the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Malcolm Rifkind, chairman of Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee, told the BBC today that the panel would request access to the findings related to Britain on these matters.

Prime Minister David Cameron's Downing Street office has acknowledged that some parts of the report were blacked out for national security reasons, but says none of it related to British involvement in the mistreatment of prisoners.

The Senate Intelligence Committee's report on CIA interrogations released this past week exposed years of misrepresentations that seem designed to boost the case for the effectiveness of brutal interrogations.
