Michael Fabricant today signed and authorised the Libyan Asset Freezing Regulations 2011 in the House of Commons. See photo.
Michael says: "Although my primary role is that of The Government Pairing Whip, my official title is that of Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury. In that capacity I sign Government cheques and Orders. Today, I played a very minor role in history by signing the Government Order which will seize all Libyan assets within the United Kingdom and Overseas Territories. I asked a colleague to take a photo to record the event."
