From what I can tell, this story probably relates to the licences referenced in the following written parliamentary question - 
http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201314/cmselect/cmquad/205/205we19.htm

This would mean the licences were granted in January 2012 rather than this year - this is consistent with the date being ten months into the Syrian conflict.

From what little I know re chemistry, I think sales of potassium flouride are more likely to look questionable than sodium flouride. However, if the EU knew by later that year of the possible uses of these agents, I am sure the UK government did as well.

Solidarity,
Ian
