Corbyn also asked for the legal advice given to the Attorney General regarding the attack to be published, and called for Britain to work towards a ceasefire.

Labour's shadow home secretary Diane Abbott told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "It would be outrageous for the government not to bring military action in Syria to Parliament - for Parliament to have a vote..."

Corbyn continued: "Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump". They stressed that Syria must be prevented from launching a similar attack on its own people in future.

The UK, US and France have joined in a coordinated attack on war-torn Syria following the chemical attack last Saturday, with Russian Federation vowing to shoot down any missiles and destroy the bases from which they are fired from.

"Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace", the Labour leader said in a withering statement about the strikes, which he labelled "legally questionable".

Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson said: "Why didn't the government tell us what the evidence was that bombing would make life better for Syrians or protect the United Kingdom and why didn't they discuss it in Parliament first?"

Britain should press for an independent UN-led investigation into the suspected chemical attack in Syria rather than wait for instructions from the U.S. President Donald Trump on how to proceed, opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said. "The need to start genuine negotiations for peace and an inclusive political settlement of the Syrian conflict, including the withdrawal of all foreign forces could not be more urgent". The humanitarian priority must be to halt the killing on all sides. "We must do everything we can, no matter how challenging, to bring that about".

Labour leader calls for United Nations investigation into alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, as government weighs up options for military intervention.

Mr Corbyn said it is "vital that parliament has the chance to debate and decide in advance" of any military action, which he warned "risks a unsafe escalation of the conflict".
