Iraq

One of the Conservative commitments for the next general election is to restore cabinet government to our foreign policy decision-making and establish a national security council.

We need to learn the lessons from Iraq so that we do no repeat the mistakes in places such as Afghanistan.

I support the - long delayed - decision to hold an inquiry. The inquiry must cover the decision to go to war, and examine the mistakes that were made in its conduct and its planning. There is also concern that the remit should be set out in a statement to Parliament and that the Leader of the Opposition, and Privy Councillors in Opposition parties, are consulted properly.
