Devizes MP votes with Government in Syria debate
Devizes MP Claire Perry said she voted with the Government to consider military action against the Assad regime in Syria having listened carefully to the debate last night.
She told the Gazette: “I was very aware of the concern of some of my constituents who sent me some very well-thought-out objections to military action.
"This was not about sending in our troops but enforcing a global ban on the use of chemical weapons that has been in place since the 1920s.
“There was a lot of politicking going on yesterday but how would we feel if we saw the United States doing our job for us? We got involved in the Balkans with good effect and we could do the same here.”
