ABSTRACT
THIS week a report said only MPs in English seats should be allowed to vote in the Commons on matters solely affecting England. When one or two of us suggested this at the time of devolution in 1997, we were howled down, so it was good to see the general acceptance now of the righting of this profoundly anti-democratic wrong. Why should Scots or Welsh MPs influence matters that do not affect their constituents? It means a Labour government would have terrible trouble getting some legislation through — but since they invented devolution, that would serve them right.
