Maidenhead MP to attend security meeting on Syria crisis

Prime Minister David Cameron will chair a meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) today to discuss possible military action against Syria.

Ahead of tomorrow's recall of Parliament, the NSC, which includes Maidenhead MP Theresa May among its members, is expected to discuss the intelligence gathered by UN inspectors from their visit to Mouadamiya, where last week's suspected chemical weapons attack is believed to have taken place

The council will also consider whether or not to push ahead with a military strike against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

Mr Cameron said before the meeting that any intervention in Syria would not be about the conflict itself, but preventing the use of chemical weapons by any regime.
