Stop Scottish, Welsh and Irish MPs voting on things that only effect England

Additional Information

Why do we allow Scottish, Welsh and Irish Mps to vote on things that only effect England, Scotland and Wales have free or subsidised education but their MPs vote for English students to pay, how can this be right?
Scottish and Welsh students will be spared the full £9,000-a-year premium at the expense of English students.
English students will face the higher fees even if they study at a Welsh university, while Welsh students at English universities will not.
Lets get it right, Mps from England.Ireland, Scotlans and Wales should only be able to vote together ifits a matter that effects the whole of the UK, if not they should only be able to vote in their own parliment.
