Prime Minister David Cameron has said Britain could step up its involvement in Iraq.
Writing in the Sunday Telegraph he said: "True security will only be achieved if we use all our resources- aid, diplomacy, our military prowess- to help bring about a more stable world."
But one of his own MPs, who is in Iraq, has urged caution and said we need "much more information" before doing anything.
