Eligibility of Members to vote on certain issues in the House of Commons

Volume 594: debated on Tuesday 24 March 2015

The Petition of residents of Aldershot,

Declares that the Petitioners believe that when Parliament makes decisions affecting only the people of England or England and Wales then those decisions should be made only by the Members of Parliament elected to represent England or England and Wales.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons creates fairness in the devolution settlement by ensuring decisions having a separate and distinct effect on England or England and Wales, are only decided by Members of Parliament elected to represent England or England and Wales.

And the Petitioners remain, etc. —[Presented by Sir Gerald Howarth.]
