Commenting in advance of today’s emergency debate Parliament’s powers in relation to military action, Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable said:
 
“Today’s debate on Parliament’s powers is welcome.  Liberal Democrats have long argued that powers exercised under the Royal Prerogative need to be brought within the power of Parliament. 
 
“Yesterday’s exchanges in the Commons showed broad support for upholding international law on chemical weapons, exposing a serious error of judgement on Theresa May’s part in not presenting her case to MPs for a vote. 
 
“But we should be in no doubt that Jeremy Corbyn is using this procedural device to cloak his ideological hostility to British armed forces involvement in more or less any military action, and to distract from his presumption of support for a morally bankrupt Russian regime.”
