MS 6 - Iraq Next Steps
#6
Mr Speaker,

I think it would help the House rather if the Foreign Secretary could outline the estimated duration of each forthcoming phase of our involvement in Iraq, whether measured in month or in years. I'm sure such an assessment has been made by his department. Similarly, an understanding of the financial cost would benefit the House.

While Winston Churchill did not stand before the House and declare the plan for D-Day, the war was frequently discussed in this place. Indeed, Churchill because leader after just one such debate, the Norway Debate, in which the House expressed its dissatisfaction with the conduct of the war up to that point.

If it were possible in those times, Mr Speaker, I have no doubt in the capacity of the Foreign Secretary to do likewise in these rather less trying circumstances.
