UK declines to comment on report that May ready for Syria action

LONDON (Reuters) - A spokesman for British Prime Minister Theresa May declined to comment on a BBC report that May was ready to approve military action in response to a chemical attack in Syria and that she would not seek prior parliamentary approval.

The BBC reported earlier on Wednesday that May would not turn to parliament because she favoured taking action quickly.
