Prime Minister John Howard must explain the conflict between his public comments and advice he received from the UN weapons inspector Hans Blix about the likelihood that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction, Greens Senator Bob Brown said today.

A report in today's Sydney Morning Herald refers to advice that Mr Blix gave Mr Howard during a private meeting in New York in February and which Mr Howard would not discuss with journalists travelling with him at that time.

"The Prime Minister must explain his misleading of Australians with the view that he didn't know anybody who didn't believe Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the world expert on the matter had serious doubts and conveyed these to Mr Howard," Senator Brown said.

Meanwhile, Senator Brown said Mr Howard should be invited to appear before the Senate inquiry into the new evidence about the 'children overboard' matter.
