I was asked last week “will the Conservatives carry on with New labour’s asymmetric devolution that makes the English 4th class citizens in their own country?”. This question was posed in relation to my recent posting on asbestos compensation.
We are committed to making devolution work across the United Kingdom but believe there is still work to be done in relation to the West Lothian Question.
We do not want expensive regional assemblies or an English Parliament.
The government continues to use MPs who serve Scottish constituencies to get it’s legislation affecting England through Parliament; this is not fair and undermines the Union. We have more work to do on these important issues and will continue to consider how best to fix the mess that Labour’s constitutional meddling since 1997 has created.
