Opposition Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable told the BBC that parliament "can and should be recalled immediately" to hold a vote on the latest possible action.
"Parliament must be consulted on this", he said.
Trump has slammed Russian Federation for its partnership with "Gas Killing Animal" Assad, spurring concerns that a U.S. strike could lead to a conflagration with Russian Federation, which has major military facilities at Tartus and Khmeimim and works cheek-by-jowl with Syria forces that could be targeted.
The same officials say Syria has continued to produce or procure chlorine, which also has industrial and agricultural uses. "We are continuing to assess intelligence and are engaged in conversations with our partners and allies".
Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May tours Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, April 11, 2018.
"Cabinet agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons..." "It is to drive this to a United Nations -brokered peace but, at the same time, keep our foot on the neck of ISIS until we suffocate it", referring to the Islamic State extremist group.
At a congressional hearing in Washington, defence secretary General James Mattis also signalled caution, saying the president had not yet decided whether military force would be part of the USA response in Syria. In another tweet on Thursday, Trump wrote that an attack on Syria "could be very soon or not so soon at all!"
Later Thursday he was noncommittal.
May has said that Russia's veto at the Security Council of a vote to create a new inquiry on chemical attacks meant the United Nations could have no role in investigations. He said he has been talking regularly this week with U.S. President Donald Trump about the most effective response.
"France will shoulder its responsibility to end an intolerable threat to our collective security", he added, before calling for an end to the "chemical weapons escalation in Syria".

Later on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron said his country had proof that the Syrian government launched the gas attacks.
After May met with her Cabinet, a spokesperson issued a statement saying it is highly likely that Syria's President Bashar Assad was responsible for Saturday's attack that killed dozens outside Damascus. "Following a discussion in which every member present made a contribution, cabinet agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged", it read.
Russian Federation has warned the West against attacking its Syrian ally President Bashar al-Assad, who is also supported by Iran, and says there is no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma, a town near Damascus which had been rebel-held until this month. Initial reports indicated the use of chlorine gas, possibly in addition to the nerve agent Sarin. Trump said Thursday on Twitter.
"There has been no decision to take military action at this point".
At the House hearing, Democrats grilled Mattis on the wisdom and legality of Trump ordering an attack on Syria without explicit authorization from Congress. Mattis argued it would be justified as an act of self-defense, with 2,000 US ground troops in Syria; he insisted he could not talk about military plans because an attack "is not yet in the offing".
Asked about the risks of USA military retaliation, Mattis cited two concerns, starting with avoiding civilian casualties.
The U.S. stance on striking Syria is no clearer, even after President Trump tweeted that missiles "will be coming". More broadly, he doubted the wisdom of bombing. "Not to react is to prove to the rest of the world that what we say does not matter".
The drumbeat of military action appeared to grow louder, as Russian Federation stonewalled diplomatic efforts at the United Nations and France declared "proof" that Moscow's Syrian ally carried out a deadly chemical weapons attack that killed more than 40 Syrians.
"I think it is important to have a common line, without Germany participating militarily", Merkel said.
