'I think there are genuine questions to be raised right now about the British Government's behaviour, I say this as a supporter of the Government,' he told the Andrew Marr Show.

'They were not taken up at the point and I want to know why, with only one ship as it appears there, and no accelerated attempt at assets.

'This is a major failure and the Government has to answer that charge very quickly indeed.'
