House of Commons Committee Warns Cameron Against Voting on Further Meddling into Syrian Fiasco

An influential conservative majority committee in the House of Commons has strongly warned Prime Minister David Cameron against a second vote on military involvement in Syria.

A second vote on expanding bombing ISIL targets was expected this Autumn and the prime minister had made it amply clear that such a task would only be undertaken if the vote is passed with majority. However, about 20-30 conservative MPs are expected to rebel if a vote were held.

Mr. Cameron was defeated in a previous vote on the issue in 2013, following which he promised to rule out military action by British forces – although it was known later that British pilots participated in bombing operations against IS targets in Syria.
