'Agree powers to stop UK break-up', says David Davies MP

Wales and Scotland could break away from the UK unless a wide-ranging deal is agreed on the pattern of powers across the union, Conservative MP David Davies has said.

Prime Minister David Cameron called a summit where he promised Tory backbenchers that he would pursue a policy of allowing only English MPs to vote on English matters in the House of Commons.

The main parties have all pledged to consider further devolution throughout the UK after Scotland was promised more powers in the run up to last week's referendum on independence.

Mr Davies, the Monmouth MP who chairs the Welsh Affairs Select Committee, told BBC Radio Wales he was worried that offering powers to different nations in a piecemeal fashion threatened the future of the union.
