Tony Blair has been ordered to appear before a parliamentary committee to explain his involvement in the IRA “comfort letters” scandal after repeatedly refusing to attend.
The former Prime Minister was accused of being “extremely disrespectful to the House” for his “continuing lack of response” to requests for him to give evidence.
