West Lothian Agreement

Douglas Carswell and Daniel Hannan have proposed that all powers currently vested in the Scottish Parliament should also be allocated to English counties and cities. This would mean that the situation of Scottish MPs voting on a policy that only concerns England would no longer occur, because Parliament would no longer be competent for policies that concerned only England. Therefore, Parliament should choose to do politics either for the United Kingdom as a whole or not at all. Carswell and Hannan write: «All policy areas currently under the jurisdiction of the Holyrood Parliament should be transposed to English counties and cities (and, by the way, answer the question of The West Lothian).» [26] The West Lothian Council has signed new agreements with housing companies to reduce the number of people forced to live in B-B`s and the homeless. The Common Housing Register is an agreement between the Council and the housing companies, commonly known as Registered Social Landlords (RSL), Almond and Weslo, to keep a record of all their housing applicants. Their allocation policies are separate. The new agreement, part of the Council`s Rapid Rehousing Transition Policy RRTP, aims to meet the growing demand for housing in the county. These individual agreements range from 50% of their rents to 68%. The new agreement will ensure that the use of temporary housing for the homeless currently in use is reduced. Please note that, based on best practices in the publication of statistics, the «Outcome Measures» table will be a summary of the table to be presented to the CFS.

The full table was drawn up as part of the outcome agreement process, but only the summary table is displayed in the published document. In addition to the Council`s purchasing activities, some products are managed by the Scottish and UK authorities. Lord Falconer, a former secretary of state for constitutional affairs, said he believed an English parliament would «eclipse all other institutions.» [20] Peter Hain, who was campaigning for a Welsh assembly, warned against the creation of an English parliament or the attempt to prevent Scottish and Welsh MPs from voting only for England on issues that would divide the Union. [21] In July 2015, Chuka Umunna proposed that the Labour Party support the creation of a separate English parliament as part of a federal United Kingdom.

In a report to the municipal councillors on the services of the Community PDSP, it is stated that «the Council remains in great demand by those applying for Council housing. At the end of July 2020, there were 8375 applicants to the Common Housing Register and in 2019/20, the City Council received 3,764 new housing applications and leased 1,384 units, including new buildings. In the 2000s, a number of laws that concerned only or primarily England were passed by the British Parliament, whereas the votes cast by Members were such that the legislation would not have been passed if only the votes of Members representing English constituencies had been counted. [15] The Opposition Conservative Party commissioned a report entitled «Devolution, The West Lothian Question and the Future of the Union», which proposed some procedural amendments limiting the participation of MPs representing non-English constituencies in the passage of bills dealing solely with England.
