The debate over English devolution is gaining momentum, having been placed squarely in the public arena following the Scottish independence referendum. This briefing provides a background to the debate, considers the governance issues at stake, and summarises recent proposals for constitutional change made by a mix of organisations. It is one of a series of briefings examining developments in the debate around fiscal and constitution devolution.
