Asked whether there would be a vote in Parliament before any decision would be taken to arm Syrian rebels, the PMS said the Prime Minister had been clear that he had never been someone who wanted to stand in the way of the House having a say on any of those issues. He made the point that the issue itself had not arisen because a decision had not been taken to arm the rebels. Asked a follow up question on whether the Foreign Secretary had previously talked about legislation to make it a requirement for Parliament to authorise military action, the PMS confirmed the Foreign Secretary had spoken about that issue in the past.
