"Gordon Brown should explain his role in this disastrous foreign policy failure," said the Liberal Democrat Leader.

Commenting on reports that Gordon Brown is to appear before the Iraq Inquiry in advance of the General Election, Nick Clegg said:

"It is well known that the Prime Minister was a key figure in Britain's decision to invade Iraq.

"It is only right that Gordon Brown should explain his role in this disastrous foreign policy failure before asking the British people for their vote."
