CAROLINE CHAMPIONS ENGLISH VOTES FOR ENGLISH LAWS

Local MP Caroline Dinenage has been made a Patron of the Fair Votes for All campaign.

The campaign is calling for English votes for English issues to be introduced into the House of Commons as soon as possible.

Caroline commented:

"I am delighted to become a Patron of the Fair Votes for All campaign. This is a basic matter of fairness for people in Gosport, whose voice in Parliament is currently diluted by Scottish MPs. With more powers being devolved to Scotland following the independence referendum last year, it is not fair that Scottish MPs continue to determine issues that do not affect their constituents. We should be able to decide our own priorities in our classrooms and in our NHS."

Graham Stuart MP, Chairman of the Fair Votes for All campaign, said:

"I am glad to welcome Caroline as a Patron of the campaign. Caroline is a fantastic local representative who is standing up for Gosport. As more powers are handed over to the Scottish Parliament, this basic constitutional unfairness cannot be ignored any longer."
