British PM recalls parliament from summer break to discuss Syria

LONDON, Aug 27 (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, Sept. 2. (Reporting By Andrew Osborn; Editing by Stephen Addison)
