In our manifesto, we committed to English Votes for English Laws – and we’ve now delivered it.
The Housing Bill was the first piece of legislation to be subject to the new system.
It wasn’t fair that Scottish MPs could have a decisive say on laws that only affect people who live in England.
English Votes for English Laws helps ensure MPs throughout the United Kingdom have an equal voice – and will strengthen the Union by giving English people more say over their own destiny.
We’re putting policies into action to deliver security and opportunity for working people.
And by introducing English Votes for English Laws, this Government is continuing to deliver on the commitments we made to the British people at the last election.
