Sir Menzies Campbell, also a member of the Commons Foreign Affairs committee, said: "Amidst the euphoria at the UN in New York one significant issue remains unresolved.
"Is it now universally accepted, as all the evidence points to, that the Assad regime used chemical weapons against its own citizens?
"It would be quite wrong and contrary to principle if the result of the rapprochement over Syria between the USA and Russia were to wipe a very dirty slate clean."
