Devolution

Leaked comments from a private meeting have been quoted in a selective way by the media which gives a misleading impression on the Prime Minister's views on devolution.

The Prime Minister is a strong supporter of devolution, but not when it is used by separatists or nationalists to break up the United Kingdom.

  • The Prime Minister has always supported devolution. What he has criticised is not the principle of local decision-making but the way some people have used it to try to create division between the different parts of the UK.
     
  • Devolution is great - but not when it is used by separatists and nationalists in an attempt to break up the United Kingdom.
