The English question.


We believe there is a legitimate question to answer and we find the attempts by government ministers to answer this issue pathetic.Devolution and the setting up of separate assemblies and parliaments within the UK has led to the other nations awarding themselves favoured status in regard to prescription charges, care for the elderly etc. we are concerned that Scottish MPs can vote on matters concerning England whilst English MPs cannot vote on Scottish issues. It is sad that the issue is now being picked up by the Conservative party in the form of establishing a grand committee of MPs to vote on English affairs only. It is very sad that Labour has not completed the devolution scheme in establishing an English parliament. Happily, the idea of English regional assemblies is a dead duck as such an experiment would be too costly, bureaucratic and confusing. We hope that ministers look again at the existing constitutional settlement and legislate for an English parliament.
