The former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell has said he believes "it would be in the interests of the Government" to recall Parliament over the crisis in Iraq.
"I think the Government would be well advised to recall Parliament and to give Parliament the opportunity of sharing with Parliament everything that the Government has done and at the moment at least is intending to do," he told BBC Radio 4's The World At One programme.
He added that if MPs were to be recalled "both Parliament and the country will be better informed."
