See the Telegraph have received a slap on the wrist for printing this story, breaking the editors code by not checking with Sturgeon whether the story was true or not

In Topic: English Votes For English Laws

How will an English vote on the NHS affect NHS Scotland ? Is that budget not given from a block grant and preumably that block grant/Barnett would require the vote of all MPs ?


If there was an 'English vote' to reduce funding to the NHS, funding to the independent NHS Scotland would be reduced as well, as a consequential of the Barnett formula, without 'Scottish' MPs getting any say on it at all

It's a pile of pish - the Tories want English votes for English laws (laws that concern England only) in a UK parliament. What English only laws will be discussed? As Flora mentioned above - cuts to health etc will have a knock on effect to the rest of the UK, so all UK MPs should have a say on it.

Yet on Scottish issues at Westminster - such as amendments to the Scotlamd Bill, FFA etc - 100% of MPs serving Scottish constituencies could agree on something, but it won't matter, they can always be outvoted by English constituent MPs.

The "Scottish Affairs Committee" of 11 MPs has 7 MPs from English constituencies!
Why the feck is a Tory MP from Christchurch, Dorset getting involved in Scottish only affairs, and at the same time asking for EVEL?

That said, I'm all for it if it shows more folk up here that the UK isn't working for Scotland
