'War of words' over Brown Iraq evidence

Senior military figures have challenged Gordon Brown's claims that when he was Chancellor the military was properly funded. Two former heads of the armed forces, Lord Guthrie and Lord Boyce, have said the PM was being "disingenuous" by insisting at the Chilcot inquiry that he provided military chiefs with everything they asked for. Political correspondent Louise Stewart discusses how the PM insisted the armed forces had always got what they wanted while defence chiefs claim he dramatically cut costs.
