Devolution Department latest

In my weekend Column I speculated that the appointment of Paul Murphy to the Welsh Office might turn out to be rather short-term and that the creation of a Department for Devolution incorporating the territorial posts might still be on the cards. Lee Waters on the Our Kingdom blog poses the same question and comes up with a similar answer.

Why does the UK need a Department of Devolution!?!

Scotland and Wales are quite happy running their own affairs whilst Scottish and Welsh constituents are already over-represented at Westminster.

It's merely an opportunity to waste more taxpayers money on needless bureaucracy and have another cabinet minister.

Scotland and awles are not over represented. England has a far bigger population and the queen ins English. You want to bring in english vote for english laws and cut our mps that does not make sense.
