Security minister Ben Wallace said the threat of a chemical attack was the potential realisation of “everybody’s worst fear.”
The extremist death cult has alread been accused of using chemical weapons in Syria and Iraq, where it controls large swathes of land.
And in February, Moroccan authorities swooped on a cell which was allegedly storing substances that could be used to make a bomb or deadly ‘“toxin”.
Now security services fear Britain could be the next target for chemical warfare, following a year in which hundreds where killed across Europe in a string of deadly attacks.
Mr Wallace said: “Experts have warned that their ambition is a mass casualty attack and they have no moral barrier to using whatever means possible.”
He also warned that he believe ISIS’s ambition was “mass casualty attacks” designed to harm and “terrorise as many people as possible.”
Mr Wallace added: “They have no moral objection to using chemical weapons against populations and if they could, they would in this country.
