Conservative Party vice-chairman Michael Fabricant is calling for a new Act of Union to give equal powers to the four UK nations.

The Lichfield MP proposes giving England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland equal powers - including tax - while Westminster deals with issues like defence and foreign policy.

He told Vaughan Roderick on BBC Radio Wales it would make the union stronger.
