English Constitutional Convention


English Constitutional Convention

The English Constitutional Convention is a pressure group lobbying for a devolved English Parliament.

The English Constitutional Convention aims to bring about the same constitutional changes achieved by the Scottish Constitutional Convention which ultimately secured a devolved Parliament and Executive for Scotland. However, the English Constitutional Convention faces a far greater challenge despite devolution already having been implemented everywhere else in the UK as English devolution is officially opposed by all the main British political parties. Only the Conservative Party has significant support within its ranks for an English Parliament.
