Prevent Scottish MP’s voting on English legislation

Comment 2nd July 2010

English MP's are not allowed to vote on matters in Scotland that are governed by the SCottish Assembly and yet Scottish MP's can vote in parliament on all matters affecting England.

Why does this matter?

If we are to enjoy a healthy and close continuing union in the UK we must address the unfairness that simply fuels resentment. Scotland has its own Assembly – it is now long overdue that Parliament is reviewed to reflect this fact and give ENgland the representation it deserves too. Scotland receives a disproprtionate share of govt funding (higher than ENgland) and yet its MP's have the right to vote on matters in England which ENglish MP's have no authoprity over in Scotland. How can this be fair?
