The Government supports the Union of the United Kingdom. The Government recognises that the devolution settlement is an issue of continued public interest, but does not believe that there is a groundswell of support for an English Parliament at present. Consequently, the Government does not believe that it is necessary to establish an English Constitutional Convention.
No "groundswell"? Even a BBC Poll shows that the vast majority WANT an English Parliament!
Most people, including those in Scotland, think England should have its own parliament, a BBC poll suggests.
Newsnight found 61% in England, 51% in Scotland and 48% in Wales agreed with the idea.
So what, in the UK Government's opinion, constitutes a "groundswell of support" for an English Parliament?
Big hat-tip to Tommy English.
