Written Answers — Home Department: Illegal Immigrants: Car Washes (24 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many civil penalties were issued by the UK Border Agency to hand car wash operators for employing illegal workers in 2009.

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Higher Education (16 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: On that point, does my hon. Friend agree that what the Minister said to me earlier was an insult to the 158,000 students who were refused a place at university last year? In response to my intervention, the Minister said they should return to sixth-form college. Does that not show a complete lack of understanding of the problem, and of understanding and sympathy for the problems that students...

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Higher Education (16 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: Will the hon. Gentleman answer this question? The politics page on the bbc.co.uk website claims that the overall costs of the Liberal Democrat policy over six years is £7.5 billion. Who is right-the Liberal Democrats or the BBC? Who should these great students in this great nation of ours believe-the BBC or the Liberal Democrats?

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Higher Education (16 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: Will the Minister give way?

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Higher Education (16 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: The Minister talks about students understanding things, and perhaps he could explain something to some students. UCAS published some figures on 22 January that show that last year, 158,000 of those students who applied for a place at university failed to get one compared with 110,000 the year before. That suggests that without action that number will increase. What message does the Minister...

Christopher Fraser: No, answer it.

Opposition Day — [6(th) Allotted Day]: Higher Education (16 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: With all respect to the Minister, I asked a perfectly civil and polite question about those students who have been turned down already. I was not asking about those who are currently doing exams, but about those who failed to get into university last year. I gave the figure, saying that 158,000 students cannot get a place at university or a job. I would prefer it if the Minister could answer...

Christopher Fraser: What does the Minister say to them?

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Deaths: Cancer (16 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer of 22 February 2010, Official Report, column 159W, on death: cancer, for what reasons age-standardised mortality rates for 2008 are (a) unavailable by parliamentary constituency and (b) available for primary care trusts; when she expects the 2008 data for each parliamentary constituency to be made available; and if she will...

Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill: Northern Ireland Assembly Members Bill [ Lords] (11 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: Does the hon. Gentleman agree with Sir Christopher Kelly, who told the Assembly's Standards and Privileges Committee that any new body appointed to regulate salaries and allowances should also have the power to investigate any alleged wrongdoing without a formal complaint being made? That will add to the transparency and accountability to which the hon. Gentleman refers.

Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill: Northern Ireland Assembly Members Bill [ Lords] (11 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: They do take their expenses, however.

International Women's Day (11 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: Given what the hon. Lady has just said, is she as disappointed as the rest of us that not one female Liberal Democrat Back Bencher is present for this afternoon's debate?

International Women's Day (11 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: We have got some on our Benches, and so have the Government.

International Women's Day (11 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: He is not a woman!

Business of the House (11 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: Representatives of the care home industry have told me of the regulatory difficulties that they face, which get in the way of prioritising care for those people who, in the words of the Leader of the House, are not wellderly. Those representatives criticise the Government and say that they could do more to help. In light of that, and because of the debate about the future care of those...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: HM Revenue and Customs (10 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: The Minister's point about tax bands is valid in relation to emissions, but even accepting that, somebody who lives in a rural area and has to use a four-wheel-drive vehicle is doubly penalised unless we have a scheme based on geographic area in the way that my hon. Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr. Hollobone) set out.

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: HM Revenue and Customs (10 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: I want to make two or three specific points about the problems that we face in Norfolk. I have said in the House before, and am not embarrassed to say again, that Norfolk is the only county in England without a carriageway linking it to a national trunk road network. If Norfolk is to play its part in the economic success of our nation as we pull out of recession, it is incumbent on the...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: HM Revenue and Customs (10 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: Compounding the problem that my right hon. Friend mentions is the fact that Norfolk has struggled over the years to get a roads infrastructure that is fit for purpose. I share the ends of the A14 with my hon. Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr. Hollobone)-he has the other one. Whether Norfolk is able to put forward a plan for two or three lanes, the consequence of its endeavours so far is...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: HM Revenue and Customs (10 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: The first thing that my constituents want is fairness in pricing when using the road, which includes fairness in the provision of fuel. In places such as Norwich, fuel is a lot cheaper than it is in rural areas and so elderly people on fixed incomes are disproportionately penalised. In a debate in Westminster Hall a couple of weeks ago, in which I participated, we considered fuel pricing...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: HM Revenue and Customs (10 Mar 2010)

Christopher Fraser: I thank the hon. Lady. I am not here to make party political points, because I do not think that this issue needs to be party political. I accept what she says, I know what she is referring to, and I rather hope that the Government will walk up to this problem. The report articulates brilliantly some of the problems that have been mentioned in the debate, and I look forward to hearing the...
