A charter from more than 500 years ago could be used to veto plans for the Duchy and Devon to share an MP.

The Cornwall Stannary Parliament wants to block 'Devonwall'.

It would mean places like Bude, Tintagel and Camelford could become part of a constituency that spans the Tamar.

Secretary Gill Fox says, "Cornwall is extra-territorial to England, always has been, always will be. We're trying to use the charter of pardon of 1508 that specifies by Henry V11 we are able to veto whatever legislation comes from Westminster.

"The Stannary Parliament is the oldest parliament in Britain and I believe that the Westminster government should recognise that and recognise the charters that affect Cornwall because we're not going to lie down and take it. We're going to fight for it".
