English votes for English issues

The government has set out its proposals and will debate and vote on them on July 15th. I promised to speak for England and to seek ways in which English matters can be settled by English MPs. These changes to the way the Commons will consider English laws, English budgets and English taxes are a good start which I will support next Wednesday.

    The only true way is full devolution for all Countries in The UK, thus an English Parliament for English Matters.

    To underline that need:

    I see that the SNP are already saying they are going to do a “U Turn and vote on English Fox hunting modifications, which will have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Scotland.

    Thus their promise not to vote on English matters will be broken after just a couple of weeks.

    I predict 5 more years of chaos unless we get an English Parliament.
