Hilary Benn today said his thoughts are with the "brave men and women of the RAF" after being praised for his Commons speech calling on Labour to back extending military action against IS in Syria.
Speaking outside his home, the shadow foreign secretary refused to comment on the praise he had received for Wednesday night's speech, which Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said would "go down as one of the truly great speeches made in this House of Commons".
Hull's MP says she will give her full backing to armed forces carrying out airstrikes in Syria - despite voting against them in the Commons tonight.
Diana Johnson was among around 223 MPs who voted against the raids after a 10 hour debate in the commons.
Hilary Benn received huge applause and cheers from all sides of the House of Commons following his speech in favour of carrying out airstrikes against so-called Islamic State in Syria.
Britain has a "moral and practical duty" to carry out airstrikes against IS in Syria, the shadow foreign secretary told MPs.
Mr Benn asked MPs whether they could stand aside and refuse to act fully, passing the responsibility for defending the UK's national security to other nations, when "we know they (IS) are plotting more attacks".
The Labour MP said: "I believe we have a moral and a practical duty to extend the action we are already taking in Iraq to Syria.
"We must now confront this evil. It is now time for us to do our bit in Syria."
Mr Benn said MPs should not "walk by on the other side" and must show solidarity with Britain's allies.
Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond praised Mr Benn's "outstanding" speech, saying it would "go down as one of the truly great speeches made in this House of Commons".
The Conservative MP for Haltemprice and Howden, David Davis has told the Commons that he remains unconvinced that British involvement in air strikes on Syria is a good idea.
He told MPs debating the issue ahead of tonight's vote that the so-called Islamic State had grown stronger since a bombing campaign began in Syria.
The Labour MP for Batley and Spen, Jo Cox has announced she will be abstaining from tonight's Commons vote on British air strikes on Syria.
The Labour MP for Hull West and Hessle Alan Johnson has been stating his case for supporting British involvement in air strikes on Syria.
Mr Johnson told the Common that he believed that tonight's vote would not alter the so-called Islamic State's ability to plan and execute a terror attack on Britain.
Emergency services from across Yorkshire are today testing procedures for dealing with multiple ‘major incidents’ in South Yorkshire.
‘Exercise Keep Valley’ will simulate the decontamination of people who have been covered in poisonous chemicals as part of a suspected terrorist attack.
The main activity will take place at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium- but another major incident simulated elsewhere in the county will test how fire services respond to more than one large scale event.
The exercise will involve staff and vehicles from all four fire and rescue services in Yorkshire & Humber, plus other partner agencies, to test the arrangements those organisations already have in place for supporting each other across traditional county borders.
The ‘incident’ will include the deployment of the fire service’s Detection, Identification and Monitoring and Mass Decontamination vehicles which carries showers-tents and emergency clothing.
A small area around the Keepmoat Stadium will be closed to the public so the specialist equipment can be deployed.
The Labour MP for Hull North, Diana Johnson has taken to social media to reveal that she has received an e-mail threatening MPs who vote for air strikes in Syria.
In a post on her Facebook page, she said she is saddened to have been sent an e-mail by an anonymous individual who claims to be a Labour Party member. The e-mail outlines a campaign of deselection against any MPs who support air strikes.
