Shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander has said the Prime Minister must make a case for military action over Syria in Parliament should the crisis reach that point.
In light of ongoing 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.
