Abstract

The Coalition Government has proposed a new measure to counteract some of the asymmetries brought about by devolution, which could see English MPs enjoying what amounts to a ‘Fourth Reading Veto’. Andrew Blick argues that this measure, if successful, could fundamentally change the way the House of Commons deals with legislation, and makes the case for a more inclusive and less partisan approach to constitutional reform.
