Urgent action needed to preserve United Kingdom, thinktank says | Politics | The Guardian

“The roles of the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland secretaries should be combined into a single “Department for the Union”, the UK should get a written constitution, and secession referendums should be held no more frequently than every 15 years, a thinktank has recommended.

The call for a “charter of the union”, initially setting out the powers and principles governing the relationship between the four nations of the UK – England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – has been made by prominent lawyers and academics in a study by the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law.’

There should be English votes for English laws, according to the review, whose authors include Prof Sir Jeffrey Jowell QC, the centre director; the historian Prof Linda Colley; Prof Adam Tomkins, professor of public law at Glasgow University; and Prof Tony Travers, director of British government at the London School of Economics.
