“ENGLISH votes for English matters.”
That’s the call from Dewsbury MP Simon Reevell.
The Conservative has tabled an Early Day Motion in Parliament demanding that Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish MPs are banned from voting on issues which only affect England.
Policy areas like health and education are devolved to the assemblies in Belfast and Cardiff and the Parliament in Edinburgh.
However, policies for English schools and hospitals are still decided by MPs from across the United Kingdom.
Mr Reevell believes this is unfair.
He said: “The English question needs to be resolved sooner rather than later.
“It’s bad for our democracy to have such obvious unfairness at the heart of our constitution.
“We’ve had plenty of examples before – most famously for the last tuition fees vote in 2004 – where Scottish and Welsh MPs were critical in forcing through a change which affected only English residents.
“I’m in favour of an English Star Chamber which could sit for one or two days a week in Westminster to vote on laws which affect only English residents.”
