The long awaited Commission into the West Lothian Question has finally been unveiled.

Unfortunately the terms of reference do not allow the Commission to consider the only solution to the West Lothian Question – an English parliament – as the Government had previously suggested it would, on two separate occassions.

Lord McNally (Minister of State, Justice; Liberal Democrat):

An English Parliament has been proposed in the past as a solution to the West Lothian question. It would be open to the commission, once established, to consider this as part of its review.

As the noble Lord is aware the coalition programme for government committed the Government to establishing a commission to consider the West Lothian question.

Anyone in England who expected fair dealing from the British Government ought now to support Scottish independence.
