Local MP welcomes Commons vote on Syria

Clywd South MP Susan Elan Jones has warmly welcomed last night’s House of Commons vote that Britain should not enter military conflict in Syria.
 
Ms Jones, who is a Labour whip and who voted against David Cameron’s proposal, said: ‘The House of Commons rightly stopped the Government in its dangerous tracks in a way that has not happened since the Suez Crisis in 1956.
 
"People do not want war. The international community must deal firmly with the issue of Syria and chemical weapons but David Cameron’s plans would have made things much worse.
 
"I am delighted that the House of Commons and the Labour Party had the guts to do the right thing on this and to allow the common sense views of most British people to be heard."
