Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rural Communities (Recession) (15 Jun 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am enormously grateful to my hon. Friend, who makes a valid point. On occasions, there is more gas in this place than we in Norfolk are able to secure! Households face a double blow: they face higher costs, while having no proper infrastructure for services. The local community is sometimes literally dying on its feet: young people cannot get jobs and business people cannot secure the loans...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rural Communities (Recession) (15 Jun 2009)

Christopher Fraser: The hon. Gentleman misunderstands what this debate is about. If he looked at the monitor, he would see that it is about rural communities in recession—a recession caused by the lack of attention by this Government to the infrastructure that communities such as Norfolk, and South-West Norfolk in particular, need. As such, it is the responsibility of this Government— [Interruption.] The...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rural Communities (Recession) (15 Jun 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am not taking another intervention from the hon. Gentleman, but I will allow him to write to me, as I first suggested. [Interruption.] No, he has had his chance; I am not giving way to him again. Finally, I want to deal with the effect of rural crime. My constituency suffers from many farm thefts. There are opportunists coming into the area from far and wide, who think that they can easily...

Business of the House (30 Apr 2009)

Registration of Births and Deaths (Welsh Language): Geneva Conventions and United Nations Personnel (Protocols) Bill [ Lords] ( 1 Apr 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Does the Minister accept that using various symbols in different areas gives rise to the problem addressed by my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr. Chope)? In the future, more symbols may well be introduced because of the circumstances that are presented, and that could cause more confusion, rather than coherence in what the Red Cross is trying to achieve.

Registration of Births and Deaths (Welsh Language): Geneva Conventions and United Nations Personnel (Protocols) Bill [ Lords] ( 1 Apr 2009)

Registration of Births and Deaths (Welsh Language): Geneva Conventions and United Nations Personnel (Protocols) Bill [ Lords] ( 1 Apr 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I thank the Minister for giving way again. I am asking my questions in interventions rather than in a speech as I have to attend a Select Committee very shortly. When the UN's sixth committee proposed the terms of the optional protocol to the convention on the safety of UN personnel, there was some concern that the term "peace building" was not properly defined. What does she understand the...
