A military chief and defence officials will face MPs' questions over a security breach at an Afghan base in which Taliban fighters killed two US Marines.
One of two American generals forced to retire in the wake of the incident at Camp Bastion told a Pentagon investigation that the British ''knew that they had screwed up''.
But Defence Secretary Philip Hammond insists there was no initial evidence of "systemic failure" by UK forces over the attack in which eight American Harrier jump jets were destroyed.
Papers released with the American report showed US officers complained the British had refused to pay for a new security fence.
It followed an earlier attempted suicide attack on the runway where a plane carrying US defence secretary Leon Panetta had just landed.
In the later attack, 15 Taliban fighters dressed in American uniforms walked past an unmanned watchtower on to the airfield and opened fire with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades.
The Taliban claimed it was targeted at Prince Harry - who was serving at the time at Bastion, the main British base in Afghanistan.
A UK review by Chief of the Defence Staff, General Sir Nick Houghton, was called to examine among other issues whether British commanders properly reported any concerns they had about security at the base through the UK chain of command.
In October Mr Hammond told the defence select committee: ''Our understanding of the incident at the moment on the basis of our own review and on the basis of the published version of the US report is that we do not believe that there is a systemic UK failure that we need to address.
''If the conclusion of the report was that it was our fault, it isn't obvious why two US Marine generals would get fired as a consequence.''
The findings of the UK investigation will not be published but the committee has called senior figures from the MOD's Permanent Joint Headquarters for an evidence session to investigate the incident.
They are: Chief of Joint Operations Lieutenant General David Capewell, Chief of Staff (Policy & Finance) Paul Rimmer and Head of Afghanistan/Pakistan Current Commitments Team John Noble.
