It was reported this morning that the Law Lords have ruled that the Government are not to be forced into holding a Public Inquiry into the Iraq war.
Responding to the news Lib Dem Federal leader Nick Clegg said:
"This ruling will be extremely disappointing for the families involved.
"It is simply adding insult to injury after Gordon Brown recently promised to hold an inquiry, but just not yet.
"Whatever the Prime Minister or the Law Lords say, natural justice demands that a full public inquiry is held without further delay.
"How can our brave troops and their families ever trust the Government again unless they are sure lessons have been learnt from the disastrous decision to invade Iraq?"
