David Cameron has told ITV News he will "return instantly" from his next holiday if needed to deal with the crisis in Iraq.
The Prime Minister has so far declined to recall parliament, and he explained that he "didn't think it was necessary", but has kept it under "under review".
But Mr Cameron told ITV News' Chris Ship that he always manages situations with his BlackBerry just a "few feet away" while he is on holiday.
Asked Cameron about recall & leaders being in holiday. Answer: Recall "under review". Holiday: I don't hand over & I always manage things
On holiday: PM says I won't be far away this time/I am always a few feet from my BlackBerry/I ensure govt properly represented at all levels
Cameron promises to "return instantly" should the need arises on his next holiday.
