Defence Questions: Syria

In Defence Questions today, I quizzed the Secretary of State if he is able to defend the Prime Minister’s figure of 70,000 freedom fighters willing to fight the ground assault on our behalf in Syria.

The nation was told that 70,000 people were armed and willing to fight on our behalf in Syria, a figure that the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Defence have both been able to defend.

The Secretary of State today argued that these figures were established by the Joint Intelligence Committee, but was unable to pinpoint exactly where these fighters are coming from.
