Business of the House (18 Sep 2003)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: As my right hon. Friend will know, we are approaching the party conference season. Is he aware that the Electoral Commission is conducting an inquiry into party funding? Will he allow a debate, as soon as possible after its report, on an issue that is important to all members of all parties?

Domestic Violence: Children (Parental Contacts) (17 Jul 2003)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I apologise to you for missing a previous opportunity to speak by a smidgeon as I made the mistake of going in to the Public Gallery rather than the Members' Entrance. I am grateful to you for giving me a second opportunity to speak. Following the vexed issue of contact orders in the review, is the Department prepared to countenance that the presumption should...

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: Everyone in the House attaches importance to Lord Laming's report and the protection of the most vulnerable children, so I hope that we do not obfuscate our responsibilities by playing a game of personality politics.

Top-up Fees (16 Jul 2003)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: I wish to ask the hon. Gentleman two things. First, does he agree with the direction of travel towards a target of 50 per cent. of people accessing higher education, and secondly, given the thesis that he is advancing, why does he think that when there was no charge for higher education and full grants were available, only 20 per cent. from the lower socio-economic classes went into higher...

Top-up Fees (16 Jul 2003)

Top-up Fees (16 Jul 2003)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: Does my hon. Friend think that his argument is strengthened by the fact that we never changed the 80:20 participation ratio even in the heyday of full grants? Even after the grant was introduced, it seemed that there was a 20 per cent. ceiling, and we did not budge it. That shows that individual finances are not the real issue behind access to higher education.

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: It is crucial for many of our constituents that the balance between further and higher education, in terms of funding, remains an issue in the forthcoming review. The much-needed expansion in access for the non-traditional entrants by whom many of our communities are over-represented must be based on access, via further education, to higher education.

Criminal Justice White Paper (17 Jul 2002)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: As a non-lawyer, but as somebody who has supported a child victim through the criminal justice system, I believe that the most dreadful thing is that the process destroys any concept of justice at such a young age. The proposals should enshrine changes to the process which instil in young people the courage to pursue the high principles of justice. Will my right hon. Friend ensure that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Suicide (18 Jun 2002)

Ms Lorna Fitzsimons: Does my hon. Friend agree that a crucial plank in that strategy, which will help us to meet the target, is to ensure that the children's national service framework on mental health and medical services looks at the way in which vulnerable children are supported?
