Is the House of Commons debate on Libya to descend into farce?

The House of Commons is being asked this afternoon to agree that it "acknowledges the demonstrable need, regional support and clear legal basis for urgent action to protect the people of Libya" without, so it seems, seeing the whole legal advice provided by the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve QC.

If MP's aren't shown the full legal advice from the Attorney General they are in no position to vote on whether or not there is a "clear legal basis" for military action.

You can be sure that the summary won't include the more dodgy aspects of the Attorney General's advice.

It's enough to make you think that the House of Commons is expected merely to rubber stamp David Cameron's State Hidden International Terrorism in Libya without MP's seriously engaging their brains.
