The retired head of the British Army has said that "the nation would expect" Parliament to be recalled to debate Britain's continued involvement in Iraq, adding to the mounting criticism of David Cameron's decision to take a second summer holiday.
I think the nation would expect that. Everyone has private points of view, I think they need to be aired publicly, I think they need to be aired in Parliament and then I think the PM is going to have confidence that he has got Parliament behind him and hopefully a consensus across the political parties that we are doing the right thing.
