GOSPORT MP Caroline Dinenage has been made a patron of the Fair Votes for All campaign.

The campaign is calling for English votes for English issues to be introduced into the House of Commons as soon as possible.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘I am delighted to become a patron of the Fair Votes for All campaign.

‘This is a basic matter of fairness for people in Gosport, whose voice in parliament is currently diluted by Scottish MPs.

‘With more powers being devolved to Scotland following the independence referendum, it is not fair that Scottish MPs continue to determine issues that do not affect their constituents.’
