“but I can’t give a blank cheque.”

Whilst everyone is on the same page… Conservative Party leader David Cameron has been commenting on the ongoing row over the devolution of policing and justice powers. From the BBC report

Mr Cameron said there was a great deal of cross-party consensus on the issue. “We all want to see devolution of law and justice as part of the devolution process,” he said. “We’ve always said you’ve got to have confidence on all sides before it can happen properly. “But we want it to happen and generally speaking commitments that are made we will try and agree to, but I can’t give a blank cheque.”
