On 12 October 2011, the defence committee began its inquiry into UK operations in Libya.
Rebel forces have taken control of much of the country after months of fierce fighting against forces loyal to the former dictator Colonel Gaddafi.
In March, the UN Security Council passed a resolution authorising "all necessary measures" to enforce a no-fly zone and protect civilians.
The UK and France had led the calls for a tough stance on the Gaddafi regime, with RAF warplanes deployed to the Mediterranean to enforce the no-fly zone.
British forces bombarded government defence targets in Libya before Nato took control of military operations in the country.
In September, Prime Minister David Cameron announced a £1m package of support to aid the reconstruction of the country, as well as the deployment of two military advisers.
Evidence was taken from:
• Sir Mark Lyall Grant, UK Permanent Representative to the United Nations
• Mariot Leslie, UK Permanent Representative to the North Atlantic Council
• Sir Christopher Harper, UK Military Representative to NATO and the EU.
