Post Office Closures (South Manchester) (17 Nov 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: Does my right hon. Friend share my utter dismay that although Members on both sides of the House voted for specific money to be allocated to areas of deprivation where sub-post offices were under threat, the Post Office admitted to me that it is closing such sub-post offices, but has passed the buck to my hon. Friend the Minister and to other Departments instead of owning its responsibility...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Light Rail Schemes (16 Nov 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: Will my right hon. Friend accept the thanks of my constituents for the role that the Minister of State, Department for Transport has played in the working party?

Member for Oldham, East and Saddleworth (Mr. Woolas), are concerned, the only right decision...

Business of the House (11 Nov 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: I wonder whether my hon. Friend will find time in the packed agenda between now and prorogation to deal with the sub-post office closures happening in his constituency and mine, with specific reference to the £300 million that the Government allocated, in the urban sub-post offices revitalisation programme, for post offices that would otherwise be shut because they were economically unviable...

Greater Manchester Metrolink (27 Oct 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: May I suggest to the hon. Gentleman and my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Central (Tony Lloyd) that the people of Rochdale and Oldham welcome the Liberal Democrats' support, given the fact that they campaigned for years to include Hazel Grove rather than Rochdale and Oldham? The cross-party consensus is welcome.

Hospice Movement (13 Oct 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Heywood and Middleton for giving way.

Public Bill Committee: Children Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Establishment (12 Oct 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: May I check my understanding? The job that we are discussing is similar to our job. We are meant to be legislators and scrutineers but also caseworkers, and obviously one role informs the other, but we have to get the balance right between our different roles. Does my right hon. Friend want the commissioner to look up, and to look across Government in the widest possible spheres to ensure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Northern Way Growth Strategy (21 Jul 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: I thank my right hon. Friend, whose personal commitment to regeneration in the north is welcome, for that answer.

Public Expenditure (14 Jul 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: The hon. Gentleman may wish to reconsider his comments in the light of published evidence showing that all Sure Start programmes, even the newest ones, have a significant impact.

Public Expenditure (14 Jul 2004)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: I feel rather humble to be following the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr. Clarke), with his august Cabinet history.
