Members of the Basque parliament have voted in favour of proposals for more autonomy from Spain.

"The plan, drawn up by the leader of the Basque government, Juan Jose Ibarretxe, calls for a referendum on independence. This vote in the Basque parliament's institutional commission is the first important step for the Ibarretxe plan. The autonomy plan calls for a separate judiciary, police force, financial system and a distinct citizenship for those with Basque ancestry.

The commission voted to support the proposal after more than a year of heated debate. The document needs the endorsement of the regional parliament before it can go to a referendum. "
