Labour frontbench spokesperson Lord Touhig responds briefly to say that Labour does not support the amendment because, although he sympathises with its aims, it does not ensure operational security.
Earl Howe responds to the debate by outlining the process by which targets are assessed and fired upon by UK forces.
The defence minister says "all military targeting is governed by strict rules of engagement in accordance with both UK and international humanitarian law".
"We will not use UK military force unless we are satisfied that its use is both necessary and lawful."
With these assurances, Baroness Smith withdraws her amendment and that brings the day's proceedings to an end.
Peers return bright and early at 11am tomorrow - but until then, good night.
