- Theresa May’s statement on Syria air strikes – Highlights
The Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen says the War Powers Act proposed by Jeremy Corbyn would amount, in practice, to a No War Powers Act.
May agrees. She says even when the UN did back air strikes in Syria (against Islamic State), Corbyn was opposed, she says.
The Labour MP Thelma Walker asks how it can be right to bomb Syria but then not take in Syrian refugees. How does that reflect British values?
May says the UK has been helping Syria refugees. Walker should be proud of what the UK is doing to support them, she says.
