“The Vow” to devolve more powers to Scotland, made by the leaders of the three main political parties in Westminster at the end of the Scottish referendum campaign, has sparked vigorous debate about the future constitutional structure of the United Kingdom, and in particular about devolution in England. This event will offer a wide range of views and analyses on the many ideas for restructuring the Union now being discussed. Prominent in the discussion will be such topics as an English Parliament, a British Constitutional Convention, a written constitution for the United Kingdom and  “English votes for English Laws”. As ever, the Federal Trust will seek to promote debate and understanding rather than to present an illusory certainty on these complex issues.
