Labour seek recall of Parliament over Syria

26th August, 2013 7:56 am

Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander has called for a recall of Parliament if the UK is considering military options against Syria.

Mr Alexander said:

“In light of on-going international developments, it is right that the UK works with the international community to try and find an agreed way forward in Syria.

“If, in reality, the Prime Minister is now considering military options involving UK personnel then of course I would expect him to seek a recall of Parliament and to come to the House of Commons and make his case in advance of a decision being made.”
