Harriett Baldwin asks about implementation of recommendations of McKay report on devolution

25th April 2013

Harriett Baldwin questions the Deputy Leader of the House of Commons about implementation of recommendations made in the McKay report on devolution in the next Session of Parliament.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con): What assessment he has made of the Report of the Commission on the Consequences of Devolution for the House of Commons. [153186]

The Deputy Leader of the House of Commons (Tom Brake): The McKay commission reported on 25 March on how the House of Commons might deal with legislation that affects only part of the UK. This is a very important issue, which is why the Government asked this expert commission to look at it. The report makes a helpful contribution, and we will give it very serious consideration before responding substantively.

Harriett Baldwin: I look forward to that response. I would like to know whether the Leader of the House intends to act on those proposals in the next Session of Parliament.

Tom Brake: I thank my hon. Friend for that question. I know that she has pursued this matter vigorously in recent months. Clearly, the McKay commission has produced a serious report. It has a menu of options contained within it, and the Government will want to consider the recommendations very carefully before coming to any firm conclusions.
