Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme (17 Oct 2005)

Sarah McCarthy-Fry: Portsmouth is, of course, the home of the Royal Navy, and I have spoken to serving naval officers and ratings who greatly appreciate the scheme. Their concern is that fewer and fewer MPs have active service experience, and they think that the scheme enables us to understand the lives of servicemen and women and what they have to do. I should like there to be even greater participation: does...

Sarah McCarthy-Fry: I am grateful for the opportunity to bring to the attention of hon. Members and the Minister the very important issue of corporate social responsibility.

Friend agree that it is very important that we keep alive the memory of those who gave their lives in the service of their country, and that our...

Special Schools and Special Educational Needs (22 Jun 2005)

Sarah McCarthy-Fry: Any debate about children with special educational needs is bound to be emotive. We are talking about real children and real families and there are many parents in my constituency whom I admire enormously for their dedication to their children and for the support that they give to the school that their child attends—it does not matter whether it is a mainstream school or a special school....

Home Affairs and Communities (23 May 2005)

Sarah McCarthy-Fry: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for giving me the opportunity to make my maiden speech today. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Denton and Reddish (Andrew Gwynne) and the hon. Members for Newbury (Mr. Benyon) and for Windsor (Adam Afriyie) on the eloquence of their maiden speeches.
