Did anything actually happen with this after all the years and the millions of pounds spent?

Doesn't your OP rather mss the point of an inquiry? To answer the need for questions but not to question the answers.

I see your point. I wasn't questioning the answers, more so the practical outcomes.

I think the idea is that it is a reference in the future for learning from and endevouring not to repeat the mistakes of the past.

The practical outcome is that some lawyers made a vast amount of money, several people found they could tell lies and get away with it, an important issue was kicked into the long grass, and no one did anything wrong at all (allegedly!)

BBC gave it 36hrs and no detailed analysis. NOT the STATE BROADCASTER.

But is any future Prime Minister when contemplating taking us to war going to actually have the time or inclination to read it?
Like most public enquiries, it is a complete waste of time and money, we haven't really learnt anything we didn't already know and almost nobody will have changed their opinion as a result of it, largely because almost nobody will have ever read it.

Stuff will filter down to those making relevant decisions.

Its not intended for them. Its intended for the civil servants etc. Whether it will achieve that I have no idea.
