Reassurance about Syria

I signed a letter to the Prime Minister before the recess seeking reassurance that the UK is not about to arm the rebels in Syria. I know some constituents share my concern about this.
The PM has now replied :

“We are committed to achieiving a political solution and acting to save lives in Syria. I can assure you no decision has been taken by the UK government on arming the oppositon. As the Foreign Secretary outlines in his statement to the House on 10 July, if such a decison is taken, it would be put to the House on a substantive motion.”
