Act of Settlement row

Edinburgh: It may not be a big news story south of the border, but the Catholic Church in Scotland is furious that the Coalition Government is not going to repeal the Act of Settlement: Settlement

The Act prohibits a member of the Royal Family marrying a Catholic or converting to Catholicism (as Charles the Second did on his death bed). It was a piece of modernisation that New Labour favoured but David Cameron may think it's not worth the trouble, particularly given the current travails of the Church of England.
