Labour to unveil devolution plans 'in coming days'

Labour leader Ed Miliband says his party will lay out proposals for further devolution across the UK in the "coming days".

He said the party already had plans for devolution in England but added "we want to go further".

He appeared to dismiss calls for an English parliament, saying: "I don't think that has actually been proposed but we will look at any proposals the Prime Minister comes forward with."

First ministers to discuss impact of Scottish vote

The first minsters of Northern Ireland and Wales will discuss the implications of the Scottish vote on devolution after Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed powers would be reviewed across the rest of the UK.

A spokesperson for the Democratic Unionist Party leader Peter Robinson confirmed he will phone his Welsh counterpart Carywn Jones later today.

Farage posts English-only vote letters to Scottish MPs

Ukip leader Nigel Farage has begun posting letters to the 59 Scottish MPs in the House of Commons to ask them to give up their right to debate or vote on devolved English issues at Westminster.

English-only votes in Parliament form part of a list of demands Ukip has issued for England should Scotland be given more powers.

Devolution plan 'may be a nightmare for Labour'

David Cameron's decision to devolve voting powers on English issues to English MPs alone could cause a major issue for the Labour Party, reports ITV News Political Editor Tom Bradby.

In the event that Labour wins the next election with a slim majority, it may rely on MPs in Scotland that would then be ineligible to vote on English matters such as a budget.

That may mean major bills such as the Budget could be at risk of failure without cross-party support.

Farage: PM's constitutional plans 'dangerous'

David Cameron's plans to have English devolution presided over by William Hague and a committee are "dangerous", Nigel Farage has told Good Morning Britain.

The Ukip leader said the Prime Minister was "panicking" by saying, "I'm going to put William Hague in charge of a committee and after a few weeks we're going to find a solution to run in a parallel timetable with more Scottish devolution."

Council chief: 'Devolution genie is out of the bottle'

The head of the Local Government Association, which represents councils in England and Wales, has said "the devolution genie is out of the bottle" following the Scottish referendum.

David Sparks said any new powers that Scotland receives "must be given to local areas in England and Wales", adding: "The appetite for devolution does not stop at the border and the rest of the UK will not be content to settle for the status quo."

The LGA called for an urgent meeting of a Constitutional Convention and called on the Government to set out a timetable for devolution across England, with a pledge for immediate new powers to areas which are ready for them.

The Scottish referendum campaign has shown that public trust in the old ways of central control has been shattered beyond repair. That is why establishing an English Parliament, with MPs still calling the shots, would not represent true devolution.

It is locally elected councils - driving their local economies through devolved taxation and greater control over council tax and business rates - which can satisfy the desire of people in England to have greater say in the places they live and work.

'Inconceivable' not to address West Lothian question

It is "inconceivable" not to address the West Lothian question, after further devolution has been promised to Scotland, the leader of the house of commons has told Good Morning Britain.

William Hague, who will chair the committee overseeing devolution, said Parliament had to "grip" the question of Scottish MPs voting on issues which affected only England.

Abbott: London and other cities must be empowered

Labour MP Diane Abbott has said plans for an increased devolution in Scotland "must be reflected" in London and other cities across the UK.
