MPs to debate revised 'English votes for English laws' plan - BBC News
The House of Commons is to debate revised government proposals to give England's MPs a veto over English laws.
Ministers had to amend their plans after criticism from opposition MPs, including over the time for scrutiny.
A final set of proposals will be drafted after the debate, with a delayed vote to be held in September.
The debate comes after
a row over plans to change fox hunting laws
in England and Wales, with a vote being axed after the SNP said it would oppose the move.
The SNP had previously said it would not vote on issues affecting England and Wales only.
But it said its change of heart was partly due to the government trying to make Scottish MPs "second-class citizens" in the Commons through its "English votes for English laws" plans.
