When asked about the use of intelligence and surveillance assets in Syria, the Prime Minister?s Official Spokesperson (PMOS) said that these were being deployed to gather intelligence that could help to protect Britain from the threat posed by ISIL. The PMOS added that the aircraft were authorised to gather intelligence, not strike. The PMOS added that ministers had been clear we would return to Parliament for a separate decision if we proposed to take military action unless there was a critical British national interest at stake or the need to act swiftly to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, in which case we would act immediately and explain to Parliament afterwards.
