LONDON – Prime Minister Theresa May is about to face British lawmakers to clarify her choice to launch airstrikes in opposition to Syria with no vote in Parliament.
Britain, the USA and France hit targets in Syria Saturday in response to a reported chemical assault in Douma.
Parliament returns Monday after a spring break, and was not consulted concerning the motion. The federal government is just not legally certain to hunt Parliament’s approval for army strikes, although it’s customary to take action.
Could plans to inform lawmakers that the airstrikes had been “in Britain’s nationwide curiosity,” had been carried out to cease additional affected by chemical weapons assaults and had broad worldwide assist.
The federal government says it is going to search an emergency parliamentary debate on the airstrikes Monday, although that’s unlikely to fulfill indignant opposition lawmakers.
