6:00pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
HARWICH and North Essex’s MP has called for an inquiry into Britain’s military involvement in Afghanistan.
Public Administration Committee chairman Bernard Jenkin said more than twice as many servicemen and women had died in Afghanistan than in Iraq and operations there had cost twice as much.
He called for an investigation similar to the Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq conflict.
