Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Youth Unemployment (11 Dec 2018)

Michael Fabricant: It seems the message is simple: it is better to grow up in Lichfield than, say, Limoges or Lyon—does my right hon. Friend agree? If youth unemployment has fallen by 50% since 2010, how will she maintain that?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (10 Dec 2018)

Michael Fabricant: Lichfield, Tamworth and Burton Councils are members of two local enterprise partnerships—the Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP and the Staffordshire LEP. Why is my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State trying to abandon localism and force them to join just the Staffordshire LEP?

Exiting the European Union: US Trade (6 Dec 2018)

Michael Fabricant: Can we have a little bit of honesty in this House? The Minister knows full well that as long as we remain in the backstop, we can talk as much as we like to the United States, and we can sign an agreement with them, but we cannot implement an agreement with them or indeed with anyone else as long as we remain in the customs union. Will my hon. Friend just get up to say, “Yes, that’s true...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Michael Fabricant: It seems to me that both the SNP and the former Director of Public Prosecutions are arguing that if Parliament passes a motion, even if it might not be in the public interest, the Government have to comply with that motion. Does it follow that if Parliament were to pass a motion that MI5 or MI6 were to open their files and make them public, the Government should naturally do that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Child Sexual Exploitation (3 Dec 2018)

Michael Fabricant: The hon. Member for Chesterfield (Toby Perkins) is absolutely right to make that point, but is the Minister aware that the chief constable of Staffordshire, Gareth Morgan, who chairs the committee of chief constables regarding this sort of offence, has told me that there is a growing trend for people accused of such crimes subsequently to wrongly accuse others of such a crime, so that that...

Health and Social Care: NICE Guidance: Head Lice (27 Nov 2018)

Michael Fabricant: In France, where head lice are more common per capita than in the UK, people make good use of pharmacies, because it costs money to visit a general practitioner and because the state promotes the role of pharmacies. May I therefore ask the Minister why do we not advertise that we should be using pharmacies more often than not, instead of going to a GP?

Health and Social Care: NICE Guidance: Head Lice (27 Nov 2018)

Michael Fabricant: But not lice!

Health and Social Care: NICE Guidance: Head Lice (27 Nov 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Relationships and Sex Education (12 Nov 2018)

Michael Fabricant: The Scottish Parliament has recently decided to embed in the school curriculum LGBT issues so that LGBT children can integrate well and, more importantly, that other children treat them well. What thought has my right hon. Friend given to doing the same in England?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism (1 Nov 2018)

Michael Fabricant: Steve Ridgway of VisitBritain, along with Anthony Pickles, together with airlines, hotels and all the rest of it, have pulled together a sector deal. I do not want to bore the House because I have raised this before, but when are the Government going to support it?
