Sturgeon says SNP will vote on English health laws

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has told the BBC's political editor, Nick Robinson, that the SNP will vote on some English matters at Westminster.

She said her party's MPs would vote on the health service in England, because NHS spending there affected the health service in Scotland.

The SNP has six MPs in the House of Commons and in practice they do not vote on non-Scottish legislation.

Nick Robinson reports.
