South Africa (Sale of Arms) (22 Jul 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: As the hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. Foley) knows, I respect him very much and his invaluable personal contacts and friendships in black Africa. I would dearly love to follow him in his speech, with much of which I agree, but I must not because the winding-up speeches must start at 9 o'clock. I had intended to say something about trade, which has been a good deal discussed today, but, to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Anguilla (20 Jul 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he expects the Wooding Commission on Anguilla to report; and if the report will be published.

Oral Answers to Questions — Anguilla (20 Jul 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: However wise and reasonable the Wooding Commission's Report is—and I am sure it will be—it is unlikely to be acceptable to both sides, because of the wide gulf between them. In view of that, can we have an indication of my right hon. Friend's views on the problem, which was so badly mishandled by the last Government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Africa (Commonwealth Countries) (20 Jul 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Now that the civil war in Nigeria is over, would not it be useful and indicative of our friendship with Nigeria if my right hon. Friend visited the country this summer or in the autumn to establish personal contact with General Gowon?

South Africa (Arms) (20 Jul 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: As the Government's policy is causing genuine, though I believe groundless, fears in Africa north of the Zambesi, may I ask my right hon. Friend to consider inviting Mr. Malcolm MacDonald to pay a visit to these African countries with a view to explaining the Government's policy to the Presidents of those countries?

Business of the House (9 Jul 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: On a point of order. I am sorry to delay our proceedings. However, as we are considering Motion No. 8, may I say that I have just noticed that my name is printed as having signed the Motion. I certainly did no such thing. I should be obliged if it could be omitted.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Sight-Testing and Optical Appliances (Cost) (13 Apr 1970)

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Sight-Testing and Optical Appliances (Cost) (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: While I accept that there are other sectors of the Health Service which have, rightly, a greater claim upon our resources than this, my information, which I should like the hon. Gentleman to confirm, is that about two-thirds of the total cost is met by individual patients out of their own pockets. Is this not a very high proportion indeed for what is claimed to be a free health service?

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Malta (19 Mar 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether she has concluded her negotiations on aid with the Government of Malta.

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Malta (19 Mar 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Is this not a great reflection on the competence of Her Majesty's Government? I have been engaged in such negotiations and they have never taken a year to complete on a matter of relatively minor financial importance to the United Kingdom. If the right hon. Lady cannot give the whole of what Malta wants, would she direct her mind to a compromise solution to complete this matter quickly?

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Malta (19 Mar 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: In view of the very unsatisfactory nature of that reply, I wish to give notice that I shall seek to raise the matter on the Adjournment.

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Secretary of State for Defence how much public money has been spent during the past two years in modernising the aircraft carriers "Ark Royal" and "Eagle", respectively; and when it is proposed to place these ships to reserve.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Aircraft Carriers (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: How long could the active life of these two ships be after modernisation but for the right hon. Gentleman's decision to scrap them? If he is still determined to scrap them, why has he wasted so much public money in modernising them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Malta (Military and Naval Facilities) (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Secretary of State for Defence what changes he proposes in the establishment and use of the military and naval facilities in Malta, in the light of the agreement reached on the withdrawal of British troops from Libya.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Malta (Military and Naval Facilities) (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Is this not an opportunity to help both Malta and ourselves without increasing the defence forces or reducing our defence capability in the Mediterranean area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Anguilla (2 Feb 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he expects to receive the report of the Commission under the chairmanship of Sir Hugh Wooding upon the future of Anguilla.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Anguilla (2 Feb 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Would the hon. Gentleman accept that many of us who know the West Indies welcome the Wooding Commission and feel that it will tend to associate the whole of the Caribbean in this problem without its appearing that Britain is taking too paternalistic an attitude towards West Indian affairs, and will he keep us in touch from time to time with the progress of the Commission?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Scaffolding (Safety) (29 Jan 1970)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what regulations she has made to ensure the inspection and safety of scaffolding.
