Implications of Devolution for England — Statement (16 Dec 2014)

Lord Taylor of Goss Moor: My Lords, the truth is that we are now three-quarters of the way to a federal system in the United Kingdom, and it is urgent that the matter is resolved now, by whatever means, rather than at a point of crisis, when a decision may be taken to impose on England something which is deeply unpopular in England and for which England has not voted but for which a majority has been created through a...

Banks: Bridging Finance — Question (20 Oct 2014)
