Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: West Coast Main Line (19 Apr 2018)

Michael Fabricant: I am slightly reassured by that answer. The Secretary of State talks about moving express trains off the west coast main line, but of course we currently have a very good Pendolino service and the slower West Midlands trains. Several hundred of my constituents commute to London every single day. What assurance can the Secretary of State give them that the Pendolino service—a fast,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Michael Fabricant: My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is a renowned blue-sky thinker, so does he imagine that any time soon, or even some day in the future, people will be able to get on an HS2 train in Manchester or Glasgow and go non-stop to the European continent?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police and Fire Service Collaboration (16 Apr 2018)

Michael Fabricant: Is my right hon. Friend as pleased as I am to hear that Staffordshire fire service is now not going to take to judicial review her decision to merge the governance of Staffordshire’s police and fire services? Does she agree with me—and, more importantly, with Matthew Ellis, our excellent PCC—that this merger will mean that an additional £10 million a year will be saved,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

Michael Fabricant: We have all been shocked by the incidences of knife and gun crime in London, Manchester and other locations. Does my right hon. Friend agree that stop-and-search still has a role to play, especially when it is intelligence-led?

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Parliamentary Press Gallery (29 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: To ask the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington, representing the House of Commons Commission, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of withdrawing Press Gallery passes being issued to (a) Russia TV and (b) RT; and if he will make a statement.

Uk Passport Contract (26 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: May I tell my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg) not only that they make excellent paper down there, but that they make very good plastic notes at De La Rue? May I tell the Minister that my constituents feel that passports are already too expensive and that the last thing we should be doing is choosing a contractor that is not competitive. She is doing the right thing.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric Vehicle Charge Points (13 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: Batteries, of course, are one of the constraints that people consider before buying electric cars, because of their limited range. Does my right hon. Friend therefore welcome the initiative of the Mayor of the West Midlands, along with the Government, for introducing a battery research centre in the west midlands?

Hate Crime: Treatment of House of Commons Staff (12 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: I welcome the Leader of the House’s statement. Does she agree that sometimes the accused can be victims, too, and that is why it is so important that we have an independent inquiry? Does she also agree that the House of Commons Commission would not be an independent judge or jury, and indeed would not be seen to be such, simply because of the very membership of that Commission, and that...

Hate Crime (12 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: This House is at its best when it comes together to condemn evil action and we are not trying to score political points against one another. I think that we can all unite on this letter. We do not yet know who wrote it. For all we know, it is some sad individual in a bedsit playing with his computer, or perhaps it is something far more serious, but we are all right to condemn it as an...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homelessness (12 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: Does my right hon. Friend agree with Catherine Street of the Memorial University of Newfoundland that the causes of homelessness and sleeping on the streets are very many and complex, and that this is not just down to a lack of housing? Will my right hon. Friend also take the opportunity to go to the west midlands to visit Mayor Andy Street to see the work and initiatives that he is...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: New Homes (12 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: She is greedy.

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: The Prime Minister has consistently said that she wants a unique Brexit trade deal for Britain, and she has said again today that Canada and Norway are not the models for us. Is she aware that Angela Merkel has pointed out that Norway has a population of only 4 million, and Canada has a population of only 36 million and trades with the United States? Is the Prime Minister as pleased as I am...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Co-operation (5 Mar 2018)

Michael Fabricant: May I implore my right hon. Friend not to listen to the Trump-bashing from Opposition Members? There is absolutely no indication that President Trump is attenuating his commitment to NATO. Furthermore, NATO, not the European Union, is the backbone of this nation’s defence, and my right hon. Friend should be—I know that he is—going out there to Washington and speaking to his...
