UK Puts A Little More English On Its Parliament
The U.K. House of Commons has changed its rules to favor the votes of English MPs on English-only issues.By Matt Picht | October 22, 2015
The U.K. Parliament is officially EVEL! Sorry, that's E-V-E-L: English Votes for English Laws.
The House of Commons voted Thursday to create a new, English-only voting stage on bills that are deemed to only affect English voters.
The change is an attempt to solve an increasingly pressing issue in Parliament. Representatives from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland make up almost one-fifth of the seats in Parliament.
