Financial Services Bill (30 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the Bill does too little too late to deal with the fundamental problems of financial regulation, that it does not deal with his point about consumers, and that it provides inadequate protection for those who have been affected by the financial crisis? Does he agree with that point?

Business of the House (26 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I have called for a debate on the 2012 Olympics on many occasions, and each time the Leader of the House fobs me off. Given the astronomical cost of the event and the fact that the chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority has said, "Next year is set to be our toughest yet as activity on site reaches a peak", will the Leader of the House give time for this important debate as early as...

Debate on the Address: Energy and Climate Change and Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (24 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: We all have sympathy for the hon. Gentleman's story, but can he clarify his view of the Flood and Water Management Bill? Does he agree with the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, which has been critical of the Bill? It said: "The current draft is a confusing mix of measures, many of them poorly drafted; a patchwork that seeks to address individual identified problems, rather than...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Health Inequalities (12 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Will the Minister give way?

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Health Inequalities (12 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. I know that my hon. Friend the Member for Wellingborough (Mr. Bone) wants to pick up on the point that she just made, but I am picking up on an earlier point about health inequalities. Does she recognise that there are great inequalities across the country in relation to prostate cancer-an issue that I have raised with her before? Research...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Health Inequalities (12 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am listening to my hon. Friend carefully and listened to the other contributions while I was in my office. Does he agree that there is an obligation on supermarkets and food retailers to be more explicit about issues of obesity on the labelling of products that they sell, so that people have a proper idea of what they are eating and the consequences of doing so?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (10 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: The Ministry of Justice is spending £4 million installing vending machines in prisons to allow prisoners access to methadone, through the iris or fingerprint system. Why are the Government spending more on prisoners' drug habits than on abstinence-based rehabilitation?

Olympics: Energy National Policy Statements ( 9 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: In South-West Norfolk there is a growing number of wind turbines, without any tangible local benefit. Will the Secretary of State allow communities that host wind farms to keep all the business rates, to ensure that there is true local benefit from the local energy supplied?

Olympics: Energy National Policy Statements ( 9 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Say yes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions ( 9 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: During business questions last week I called for a debate on the legacy of the London Olympics and was told to bring up the subject today, so I am. Given that there is genuine concern about the promise of increased grass-roots participation in sport not being delivered upon, and the fact that there are 1,000 days between now and the Olympics, will the Secretary of State join my call for a...

Business of the House ( 5 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I have called for a debate on the legacy of the Olympics before, but there are now real concerns that the promise of increased grass-roots participation in sport is not being delivered. There are now 1,000 days until the Olympics. Does the Leader of the House accept that we need time in this House to debate the legacy of that event?

Supermarkets and Regional Farming ( 2 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: The hon. Gentleman has a great passion for this subject. Does he agree that, if a local supermarket uses the word "local" and truly wants to do some good, it has an obligation to put something back into the community where the goods were produced?

Supermarkets and Regional Farming ( 2 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Does the hon. Gentleman agree?

Supermarkets and Regional Farming ( 2 Nov 2009)

Christopher Fraser: On that point, the farm-gate price that Waitrose pays for milk is at least 2p to 3p more than that of other supermarkets, so if some can do it, others can join them.

Business of the House (29 Oct 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Given that recent research by the Prostate Cancer Charter for Action shows great inequalities still existing in the NHS for prostate cancer services, will the Leader of the House find time for a debate in the near future on that important issue?

Business of the House (29 Oct 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I have done that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Bees (Pesticides) (29 Oct 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Given the international aspects and origin of some of the diseases that affect our bees, how much contact has the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs or the National Bee Unit had with our counterparts abroad?

Opposition Day: REgional Select Committee (South West) (27 Oct 2009)

Christopher Fraser: That is illiberal! They are objecting first.

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Parading in Northern Ireland (27 Oct 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am clearly not standing here as a Northern Ireland Member of Parliament, but I serve on the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee and the Northern Ireland Grand Committee, and I am chairman of the all-party group on Northern Ireland. This issue has come up many times in debates held by those different groups when they have met in this House. I have been listening to the contributions from...
