A report into whether Russia has interfered in British elections won’t be published until after the Dec. 12 general election.

Parliament’s cross-party Intelligence and Security Committee, which has oversight of the U.K.’s secret agencies MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, has been investigating the threat posed by Russia. The committee’s reports have to be cleared by the prime minister’s office for publication, and chairman Dominic Grieve last week accused Boris Johnson of delaying its release.
