DAVID Cameron yesterday met senior Tories about plans to limit the voting rights of Scottish MPs

William Hague said that ministers were ready to open discussions with the other parties on the issue of “English votes for English laws”.

He made it clear more devolution in Scotland would be delivered, even if political opposition made change more difficult elsewhere in the UK.

The cross-party “vow” from all three pro-union leaders to hand more powers to Holyrood appeared to be in danger of unravelling when David Cameron suggested immediately after the referendum that change would be tied to more powers for England, Northern Ireland and Wales..
