Christopher Chope: Does my hon. Friend know whether the Prime Minister has invited the UK Youth Parliament to sit around the Cabinet table?
Lord de Mauley: ...communities and the public generally should not be unduly restricted, stigmatised or criminalised. During the debate in another place on the Manchester City Council Bill, my honourable friend Mr Christopher Chope argued that, "the Bills seek to penalise the lawful pedlar and take away the rights that he has had since legislation was introduced in 1871".—[ Official Report, Commons,...

There was an article in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine in March 2007 entitled, "The Falun Gong, organ transplantation, the holocaust and ourselves".

He said: "Consultation will take place with you, Mr. Speaker, and through the Leader...
Christopher Chope: Further to the points of order, Mr. Speaker. Have you heard from the Government as to when they will give Government time for a proper debate on the Youth Parliament issue? When the Prime Minister announced the proposal, he said it would be subject to proper discussion and consultation with all Members of this House. Because that consultation has not taken place, a number of us are concerned...
