Treasury: Per Pupil Funding (7 Jan 2020)

Michael Fabricant: My right hon. Friend, coming from the west midlands, will know that Staffordshire has historically been one of the most underpaid counties per pupil. How will his changes affect counties such as Staffordshire and others in the f40?

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: UK Soft Power (5 Nov 2019)

Michael Fabricant: What the activities are of staff working in his Department on soft power; and if he will make a statement.

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: UK Soft Power (5 Nov 2019)

Michael Fabricant: Last summer, the Red Arrows went to North America on an 11-week deployment and I happened, by sheer coincidence, to be in Chicago with the Mayor of the West Midlands. There we were, walking along the esplanade and we saw the Red Arrows on display with around a million Chicagoans cheering the Royal Air Force, which was great. That is a great example of soft power, but when does my hon. Friend...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Tree Planting (5 Nov 2019)

Michael Fabricant: What plans she has to increase the number of trees planted each year; and if she will make a statement.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Office for Environmental Protection (31 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: Say, “Question 7.”

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (31 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: The Woodland Trust, of which I am a keen member, believes that we can increase the amount of tree coverage by natural regeneration. That seems to be the best way of doing it, so how can we incentivise that within the new environmental land management scheme?

Church Commissioners: Archbishops of Canterbury and York: Workload (31 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: What assessment has been made of the effect of the workload of the Archbishops of (a) Canterbury and (b) York on their ability to carry out their functions effectively; and if she will make a statement.

Church Commissioners: Archbishops of Canterbury and York: Workload (31 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: But both these men are overworked. My right hon. Friend—indeed the whole House—will be aware that 1,200 years ago, Archbishop Hygeberht was the Archbishop of Lichfield. It seems to me that you, Mr Speaker, could have a future role in your retirement as the Archbishop of Lichfield—

Church Commissioners: Archbishops of Canterbury and York: Workload (31 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: No, Lichfield. We want him in Lichfield and then the hard work done by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York could be shared. We have that precedent; we want you now.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: Is my hon. Friend aware that, if the marvellous Laura Kuenssberg is to be believed—I am sure she is—Britain would have been the only country in the European Union to allow non-nationals to vote in a general election?

Points of Order (29 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: rose—

Points of Order (29 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I would like to take a contrary view and I will tell you why if I may—you and I discussed this actually some months ago. I have stark memories of being a new Member of Parliament and, when we voted as new Members of Parliament, we just voted on party lines; we did not know the individuals involved. I believe it is right that Members of Parliament...

Leaving the EU: Workers’ Rights (29 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: Anyone who has travelled in the European Union will know that conditions of employment in the UK are higher, particularly on contracts of employment, as well as the other points made by my right hon. Friend. Does she therefore share my suspicion that this UQ is motivated not by care for people’s employment rights, but more by the fact that we face, possibly, a general election?

Early Parliamentary General Election (28 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I understand that the annunciators may not have been working in the offices of Labour MPs, because most of them have not chosen to turn up today. Can that be investigated?

Shared Rural Network (28 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: This is very good news for Staffordshire. Even around the Lichfield area we have notspots. What consideration did my right hon. Friend’s Department give to roaming? If roaming were permitted, as it already is for 999 calls, this could be introduced so much quicker.

Transport: HS2 (24 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: What recent discussions he has had with Douglas Oakervee on potential alternative routes for High Speed Two phases 1 and 2a; and if he will make a statement.

Transport: HS2 (24 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: It is not just the cost of HS2, but the route: it does not even connect with Birmingham New Street or Heathrow, or meet its original intention of connecting with the channel tunnel. It does none of those. Doug Oakervee has told me that the amount of time they have to consider all this is very limited—it is very challenging indeed—and there is not enough time to consider alternative...

Cabinet Office: UK Elections: Overseas Funding (23 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: My hon. Friend will be aware that Facebook has recently withdrawn four different networks that were thought to have interfered with elections in the United States and Israel, and perhaps—we do not know—the United Kingdom. Does he think that is a good move or an irrelevant move by Facebook?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: My right hon. Friend will know that the Mayor of the West Midlands is in very close contact with manufacturers in the area, including Jaguar Land Rover. They are saying that the most damaging thing to manufacturing and industry as a whole is the uncertainty due to delay. They—not just me, not just the mayor, but manufacturers—want the deal done and the deal done now.

Speaker’s Statement (21 Oct 2019)

Michael Fabricant: I wish we were.
