This paper considers, from an historic and contemporary perspective, what are the options for a federal United Kingdom. It asks why the UK has not yet adopted federalism, what might be the advantages of doing so, and what structure a federal UK might take. It proposes a system in which a series of English regions would operate alongside Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
