Labour MPs have lined up in the Commons to support David Cameron, criticise Jeremy Corbyn and condemn the Stop the War Coalition.

Shadow Europe minister Pat McFadden was joined by former front benchers Chris Leslie, Chuka Umunna and Emma Reynolds in sharp attacks.

Backbench MPs Mike Gapes and Ian Austin also signalled some Labour support for Mr Cameron's bid to join the bombing of the so-called Islamic State in Syria.

The MPs recalled an apparent Stop the War statement blaming French military action for the attacks in Paris. Mr Corbyn was chairman of the pressure group for four years.

Mr Corbyn's apparent reluctance to support the right of police to shoot to kill when confronting terrorists was also highlighted.

The series of contributions won noisy cheers on the Tory benches during Mr Cameron's Commons statement on the Paris attacks and G20 summit.

Mr Leslie, the former shadow chancellor, said: "The Prime Minister is right, the police and security services need our full support at this time.

"Shouldn't it be immediately obvious to everyone that the police need the full and necessary powers, including the proportionate use of lethal force if needs be, to keep our communities safe?"

Ms Reynolds, who quit as shadow communities secretary when Mr Corbyn won the leadership, said: "Does the Prime Minister agree full responsibility for the attacks in Paris lies solely with the terrorists and any attempt by any organisation to somehow blame the West or France's military intervention in Syria is not only wrong, disgraceful, but also should be condemned?"

Mr McFadden, a current frontbencher, added: "Can I ask the Prime Minister to reject the view that sees terrorist acts as always being a response or a reaction to what we in the West do? Does he agree with me that such an approach risks infantilising the terrorists and treating them as children when the truth is they are adults entirely responsible for what they do.

"No one forces them to kill innocent people in Paris or Beirut and unless we are clear about that we will fail even to be able to understand the threat we face let alone confront it and ultimately overcome it."

Mr Cameron replied: "It is that sort of moral and intellectual clarity that is necessary in dealing with terrorists."

Mr Umunna said: "I agree with all the comments about the number one priority of this Government being the safeguarding of the national security of those we represent.

"That extends to every single member of this House."

Ilford South MP Mr Gapes said: "The Prime Minister's content and tone spoke not just for the Government but for the country."

Mr Gapes said on Saturday he had been near the front line with Kurdish forces, adding: "Those forces are brave, they are putting their lives on the line every day. They did so at Sinjar along with the Syrian Kurds."

Former Labour minister Mr Austin said: "I agree with everything the Prime Minister said about Syria and about terrorism.

"Does he agree with me that those that say Paris is reaping the whirlwind of western policy or who want to say Britain's foreign policy has increased, not diminished, the risks to our own national security are not just absolving the terrorists of responsibility but risk fuelling the sense of grievance and resentment which can develop into extremism and terrorism."
