Wrexham’s Member of Parliment Ian Lucas has said today’s parliamentary vote on Syria needs ‘the fullest possible consideration of evidence’.
Parliament will be voting on whether to back the principle of military intervention in Syria.
Mr Lucas has said he will “oppose a Tory/Lib-Dem proposal on the UK using military force in the Syrian conflict while evidence is still being collected by the United Nations.
He said: “The use of chemical weapons is a breach of international law. Those enforcing international law should use the UN, the established forum for international action. It is right that evidence collected by the UN weapons inspectors be considered before the UK seeks to make its case at the United Nations.
“We must also make sure we consider all the consequences of any action in Syria fully before it is taken, and that is what I hope Parliament will do today and in the days to come.”
