  • Foie Gras Imports (13 Jun 2018)
    on 13th June 2018 at 9:39 pm

    Michael Fabricant: Is it not an irony that “faux gras” is available? Many chefs say that it tastes exactly the same as foie gras, yet the animals are brought up humanely and killed humanely. There really is no excuse for the import of foie gras. […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (13 Jun 2018)
    on 13th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: But I won’t; does my hon. Friend agree that the tourism offer in south Wales will be enhanced by the removal of tolls on the Severn crossing? […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (13 Jun 2018)
    on 13th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretaries of State for (a) Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and (b) Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on promoting Wales as a tourist destination; and if he will make a statement. […]

    on 13th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: Diolch yn fawr, Mr Speaker. […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (13 Jun 2018)
    on 13th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: Whether it be the beautiful beaches of the Gower peninsula, on which I entice my hon. Friend to join me one day, the Clink restaurant in Cardiff prison, or whitewater rafting—I could go on and on&mdas […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Agricultural Sector (7 Jun 2018)
    on 7th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: Would my hon. Friend be surprised to learn that farmers in my constituency, while hoping that there will be a trade deal with the European Union, say that Brexit will provide a marvellous opportunity regardless of whether there is any such deal? In particular, specialist food manufacturers such as cheese manufacturers feel that if we can do free trade deals with countries such as the United... […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: LGBTQ Community (7 Jun 2018)
    on 7th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, what steps the Church of England and Anglican communion are taking to promote a more tolerant attitude towards members of the LGBTQ community; and if she will make a statement. […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: LGBTQ Community (7 Jun 2018)
    on 7th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: My right hon. Friend will understand that the whole question of gay marriage has not exactly endeared the Church of England to gay people. Nevertheless, I am encouraged by what she says. Perhaps she could expand a little more on what is happening in the Lichfield constituency, which extends all the way to the border with Wales. […]

  • Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)
    on 5th June 2018 at 3:01 pm

    Michael Fabricant: Does my right hon. Friend think the time has come for a referendum on this subject in Northern Ireland, just as there has been in the Irish Republic? […]

  • Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)
    on 5th June 2018 at 2:39 pm

    Michael Fabricant: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way, and I too congratulate her on securing the debate. Does she agree that it is surprising but rather wonderful that the Republic of Ireland is leading the way on this and also on gay marriage, and that, notwithstanding devolution, Northern Ireland should look now to the south and say, “They are leading the way, and we should follow”? […]

  • Proposed Media Mergers (5 Jun 2018)
    on 5th June 2018 at 2:07 pm

    Michael Fabricant: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right to praise Sky and Sky News. He will recall that it opened in 1989 and almost bankrupted, through its costs, the Murdoch family. What concerns me and the shadow Front-Bench spokesman is the long-term viability of Sky News. Ten years is a long time, and we are seeing a changing atmosphere and environment in broadcasting. How can he be assured that, over... […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (4 Jun 2018)
    on 4th June 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: With 44 fatal stabbings in London this year alone, does my right hon. Friend not accept that even the BME community would now welcome a tougher stance on stop and search— Initially, the BME community argued against it and that is why I used the word “even”. Therefore, does my right hon. Friend think that it is time to provide different guidance to the police on when stop and... […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: PFI Contracts (22 May 2018)
    on 22nd May 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: Would my hon. Friend be interested to learn that when I was a lowly Parliamentary Private Secretary in the Treasury in 1996 and 1997, John Major was constantly trying to make us finalise PFI contracts, but we in the Treasury refused because they were bad deals? As soon as Labour got in, they went straight ahead and entered into those bad deals. […]

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (22 May 2018)
    on 22nd May 2018 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: Manufacturing accounts for 24% of the west midlands economy but, as others pointed out earlier, there are skills shortages. Will the Chancellor therefore support any bid from the Mayor of the West Midlands for a devolution deal to take over responsibility for skills from the Department for Education? […]

  • Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)
    on 15th May 2018 at 12:43 pm

    Michael Fabricant: The New York Times has published photographs and evidence that some 30,000 to 50,000 people in Gaza have been at the border fence, and that, I believe, is larger than the size of the standing Israeli army, so, sadly, I can understand how these events have happened, tragic as they are. Does my right hon. Friend not agree with me that taking a unilateral view that it is only Israel to blame... […]
