It is the case that MPs from across the UK are able to debate, amend and vote on every piece of legislation that passes through the House of Commons as no legislation can be made without the consent of the whole House. The English Votes for English Laws procedure has provided a mechanism for MPs representing English constituencies to consent to legislation that affects England only.
