A key ally of Jeremy Corbyn has ruled out backing a motion declaring Tony Blair guilty of "contempt" over the Iraq War, a motion the Labour leader has said he would "probably" back.
Emily Thornberry, who was promoted to shadow foreign secretary after Hilary Benn was sacked from the post before dozens of others resigned from the shadow cabinet, warned the move would turn Parliament into a "kangaroo court".
Speaking in a discussion on the findings of the Chilcot report in the Commons, she said: "In my view the question is whether or not the House was deliberately misled.
"And Chilcot has said that although the intelligence may have been flawed and although, therefore, the House was misled, he did not conclude that the House had been deliberately misled."

The Labour party is "culturally adrift" from its traditional core voters, a former minister has warned in the wake of a row over alleged snobbery.
London mayoral hopeful David Lammy said politicians from "liberal, professional backgrounds" were finding it hard to identify with ordinary working people.
Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Lammy said a heavily-criticised tweet by then shadow attorney general Emily Thornberry was merely a symptom of the party's problems.
"The Labour Party feels culturally adrift, not just from large parts of Britain, but from its own traditional working class base," he wrote.
Large parts of the country feel that Labour not only disagrees with them, they think we disapprove of them too.
A sense of mutual disdain between the mainstream parties and working class England is driving voters away from politics, or towards so-called 'anti-politics' parties such as Ukip.
