West Lothian Question # 2

Following the 30th anniversary of the West Lothian Question (or at least the term, not the question itself) last week, today's Scotsman has gone big on the issue once more, this time quoting several not-very-senior Scottish Labour MPs who are telling the PM that something must be done, and that reviving English regional devolution might be that something.

There's also a column written by Tam Dalyell, although I think he's mis-remembering the date on which Enoch Powell coined the phrase 'West Lothian Question'. It was in November 1977, not 1978.
