Graham tables amendment declining military action in Syria

Posted on 1 December 2015 (Permalink)

Graham has placed an amendment down on the Government's motion on Syria, which declines to authorise military action. He has already secured wide, cross-party support and will continue to build this up.

Below is an email Graham sent round all MPs, which includes the text of the amendment.



Dear , We are asking all MP’s to sign this  all party reasoned amendment on Syria which we have put  down for discussion and vote tomorrow.


Delete after ‘House’ and insert,

‘while welcoming the renewed impetus towards peace and reconstruction in Syria, and the Government’s recognition that a comprehensive strategy against Daesh is required, does not believe that the case for the UK’s participation in the ongoing air campaign in Syria by 10 countries has been made under current circumstances, and consequently declines to authorise military action in Syria.’
