The Deputy Prime Minister said he could not "foresee any circumstances" that the Government would go back to Parliament for a second vote on military action in Syria.

He said: "We did it last Thursday, the answer was very clear, it was not the answer I was hoping for.

"I personally think there was a case for Britain, on humanitarian grounds, to participate in deterrent action to stop the further use of these abhorrent and illegal weapons but Parliament did not agree and I think there is no point to keep asking the same question."
