Vernon's statement in the House of Commons regarding embedded UK troops involved in Syrian air strikes

Following the revelation last week that UK troops embedded with the Canadian and American air forces had taken part in air strikes over Syria, Vernon challenged the Defence Secretary in parliament today over the government's decision to keep this information from the public.

Parliament has not approved the use of British military force in air strikes over Syria, and there was some debate as to whether the involvement of embedded troops went against the will of parliament.
