It’s all kicking off in the Commons where Chris Grayling has announced plans for English Votes for English Laws. A “double majority” of English and Welsh MPs will be required for legislation and amendments affecting only England and Wales.
To avoid confusion, votes will now be recorded on iPads:
“This new double majority system will use a new system for recording votes in the division lobbies. In future votes will be recorded on tablet computers, so it will be possible to give the tellers an immediate tally of whether a measure has a majority of English MPs as well”
iPads become part of the constitution…
