Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Children's Holidays (19 Feb 1976)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Will the right hon. Gentleman say why travel grants of £12 per head are given for holidays in England whereas an allowance of only £1·75 per head is given for holidays in Northern Ireland? Does he agree that in Ireland children of different religions are mixed together on holiday, whereas children going to England are often sent to different individual families and do not get to know each...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: IRA (United States Funds) (18 Feb 1976)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that many Americans of Irish descent give money to NORAID imagining that it will be spent for peaceful and compassionate purposes when in fact it goes straight to the gunmen? Will he invite Mr. Cosgrave, who, I understand, is to visit the United States in the near future, to reinforce his representations, as they may carry even more weight coming from the...

Northern Ireland (Constitutional Convention) (12 Jan 1976)

Mr Nigel Fisher: I have just returned to London after spending the last 10 days in Northern Ireland. Although the theme of this debate is, of course, political, no one with recent experience of the feeling in Ulster could talk about the future there without referring to the escalation of violence in the Province during the last two weeks, especially in South Armagh, where both sets of atrocities were clearly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: South Armagh (4 Dec 1975)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what steps he is taking to ensure that the Queen's writ runs in South Armagh and that troops can enforce law and order effectively in that part of Northern Ireland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: IRA (Fund Raising) (26 Jun 1975)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that many well-intentioned but rather naive people in the United States are giving large sums of money to the organisation called Northern Irish Aid in the belief that it is being used for peaceful and compassionate purposes, whereas it is going directly or indirectly to the gunmen? Will he suggest to his right hon. Friend the Foreign and Commonwealth...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Housing (Loan Sanction) (19 Mar 1975)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Returning to the original Quesion, I put it to the Minister that his policy is unrealistic in practice. Is he aware that in one block of flats in my constituency, bought by the GLC, not a single flat is vacant? All the flats are tenanted. Are the tenants to be evicted? If that is not the case, not one homeless family in the GLC area will be rehoused. Furthermore, does the hon. Gentleman agree...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Mauritius (Cyclone Damage) (24 Feb 1975)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Minister of Overseas Development what information she has as to the extent of the cyclone damage in Mauritius; whether relief aid from Great Britain has been offered; and if she will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Mauritius (Cyclone Damage) (24 Feb 1975)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Since this is the most disastrous cyclone that has hit Mauritius since 1960 will the Minister send further financial aid, especially to help rebuild over 11,000 houses badly damaged or destroyed, and perhaps also some technical assistance to help to assess the damage and advise on the reconstruction which is now needed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Secondary Education (Kingston-upon-Thames) (4 Feb 1975)

Mr Nigel Fisher: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what, if any, changes he wishes to be introduced in the secondary educational system of the Royal borough of Kingston-upon-Thames and why; and by what methods he intends that they should be introduced.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Secondary Education (Kingston-upon-Thames) (4 Feb 1975)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the council and people of Kingston and Surbiton are more concerned with the quality of education in their borough than with its organisational form? On that criterion, we have one of the 10 best records of any education authority in the country with almost double the average number of university places. Should not that be the real test of a secondary education...

Orders of the Day — Capital Punishment (11 Dec 1974)

Mr Nigel Fisher: The hon. Member for St. Helens (Mr. Spriggs) will forgive me for not following his argument in any detail because at this hour I must be very brief. I do not believe in capital punishment unless and until it can be shown to be an effective deterrent, but I shall confine my few comments to the context of Northern Ireland. I know Northern Ireland very well— about as well as any Englishman...

Orders of the Day — Capital Punishment (11 Dec 1974)

Mr Nigel Fisher: At the moment—and I disagree very much with one of my hon. Friends. Let me ask him: what would be the position of the Home Secretary if the IRA kidnapped two or three innocent people—women and children or perhaps British soldiers—and then telephoned the Secretary of State at the Home Office with a demand for the release of the convicted murderers and a threat to kill the hostages if a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Unemployed Persons (5 Nov 1974)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Will the hon. Gentleman substantiate his extraordinary statement that hon. Members on this side of the House have a vested interest in unemployment? Will he produce names and evidence for that extraordinary statement?

Northern Ireland (3 Jun 1974)

Mr Nigel Fisher: The hon. Member for Ealing, North (Mr. Molloy) may well be right that Sunningdale was not broadly enough based, but, of course, the hard-liners could have been there had they not rejected the whole idea of power sharing, which, I agree with the hon. Member, is a fundamental essence of the whole handling of the Northern Ireland situation. The need for this debate is deeply depressing, and few...

Northern Ireland (3 Jun 1974)

Mr Nigel Fisher: That is a fair point. 1 was about to deal with that aspect in my next sentence. I agree with the hon. Gentleman that there is a limit. If we are to stay, we must receive some co-operation from those whose lives we are trying to protect and whose employment we are trying to preserve. Power sharing, which I am sure is the only hope for Ulster, must be resumed. but moderate Catholics in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Grenada (30 Jan 1974)

Mr Nigel Fisher: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has any statement to make about the situation in Grenada.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Grenada (30 Jan 1974)

Mr Nigel Fisher: Will my right hon. Friend tell us whether it is true—we have heard rumours—that many people, including the Governor, have fled from Grenada to neighbouring islands and that some people fear that there may be a danger of civil war in the island? In those circumstances, will he confirm that Prince Richard will no longer go to the independence celebrations? Will he also tell us whether...

MR. Peter Niesewand (9 Apr 1973)

Mr Nigel Fisher: In view of the very severe sentence and the great secrecy that surrounds it, will my right hon. Friend confirm that he will proceed with the utmost caution in any future negotiations with Mr. Smith? Also, can he tell the House that in his own mind the validity of the proposition that there will be no such settlement without the consent of the people of Rhodesia as a whole still applies to...
