“These issues go right to the heart of the deliberations and the responsibilities of the committee, this is why clarification is key," said the Former Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

Commenting on reports that Alastair Campbell has written to the Chilcot Inquiry to clarify his previous evidence in relation to the forward of the dossier published in September 2002 by the Government, Sir Menzies Campbell said:

“The efforts at clarifications have not been effective.

“In fairness to Mr Campbell and in the interest of the Inquiry itself, he should be recalled to give further evidence on these matters and to allow members of the Inquiry to question him again.

“These issues go right to the heart of the deliberations and the responsibilities of the committee, this is why clarification is key.”
