No. But I think you're touching on something here worth clarifying: the 'Sewel motion'. The Sewel motion only applies to devolved matters, so abortion as a reserved matter would not count.

These motions are effectively a courtesy - the UK Parliament is free to legislate absolutely for Scotland. Yet when it touches on a devolved matter, as in the recent creation of SOCA (which was an issue as criminal law over organised crime would be a devolved matter) it is good form to await the Scottish Parliament passing one: it doesn't actually do anything or have any legal effect, it just shows that they support the UK Parliament legislating on a devolved issue.

Not sure why people mention the subsidies. No doubt London and the South East subsidise other parts of England.
