William Hague says war powers act not viable

Former Foreign Secretary William Hague has said a war powers act would not be compatible with the safety of the armed forces and “maximum security of the country”.

He told the Today programme: “There are circumstances where a pre-emptive attack is necessary to defend the country.”

In 2011 he had said: “We will enshrine in law the necessity of consulting Parliament on military action”.
