LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister David Cameron is recalling members of Britain's lower house of parliament from their summer break to give them a chance to discuss how best to respond to a suspected chemical attack in Syria, a spokesman from his office said on Tuesday.

"There will be a government motion and a vote," the spokesman told Reuters, adding that parliament would convene on Thursday. Holidaying lawmakers had not been due to resume their work until Monday, September 2.
