Former Labour prime minister Tony Blair is to make his second appearance before the Iraq inquiry on Friday January 21, it was announced today.
Mr Blair is one of a number of witnesses to be recalled to give evidence to the inquiry headed by former Whitehall mandarin Sir John Chilcot.
The 60 public seats in the hearing room in the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre have been allocated through public ballot, with a third going to family members who lost loved ones in the conflict.
Mr Blair's hearing will start at 9.30am and is scheduled to last around four-and-a-half hours.
Stop the War Coalition convener Lindsey German said: "Blair will be met with demonstrations and protests at the Chilcot inquiry.
"Military families, former soldiers, peace campaigners, students and trade unionists will all be there.
"Blair should not be allowed to get away with lying again. We are determined to hold him to account and believe he should be indicted for war crimes over his wilful determination to back George Bush and take Britain into this war."
