  • International Trade: Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (21 Jul 2022)
    on 21st July 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: May I first say what a great pleasure it is to ask my right hon. Friend—and she will always be my friend—this question? Will she say—[Interruption.] Sorry, that was an emotional moment, Mr Speaker; I hope you will forgive me. Will she outline the real advantages that CPT—whatever the bloody thing is called—[Interruption.] Whatever the ruddy thing is called. Will should outline the... […]

  • Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)
    on 18th July 2022 at 9:45 pm

    Michael Fabricant: I am very grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. He may not agree with me, but I think that he is being a little unfair to the Leader of the Opposition. The pointless motion today, which he knows—[Interruption.] Oh, yes! The Leader of the Opposition demanded it, and the Leader of the Opposition is now getting it. The motion that he asked for and is getting today will unite the... […]

  • Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)
    on 18th July 2022 at 5:02 pm

    Michael Fabricant: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. I personally think that our party is making the same mistake the Labour party made when it knifed Tony Blair. Is my right hon. Friend aware that the excess death rates in Europe show that, thanks to his early intervention with the vaccine, fewer people died in the United Kingdom than in the majority of other European countries? And thanks... […]

  • Extreme Heat Preparedness (18 Jul 2022)
    on 18th July 2022 at 3:36 pm

    Michael Fabricant: Will my right hon. Friend take the opportunity to praise the Meteorological Office, which was able to predict the heatwave with its Cray computers and declare a red alert days in advance? Is he aware that the Governments of France and Germany have been criticised for not giving advance warning of heatwaves in the northern parts of those countries, where heatwaves are not so known? […]

  • Defence: Topical Questions (18 Jul 2022)
    on 18th July 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: It is thanks to the team on the Front Bench and the Prime Minister that I am still able to wear this badge showing the Ukrainian flag, because had it not been for the supply of next-generation light anti-tank weapons some three to four months before the invasion, the Russians would be in Kyiv now. May I ask my right hon. Friend whether he is satisfied that we will still be able to maintain... […]

    Michael Fabricant: To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, whether shire counties, including Staffordshire, can receive devolved additional powers without an elected mayor; and if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of implementing other governance models to enable shire counties to exercise those powers. […]

  • Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Short-term Holiday Lets: Licensing (7 Jul 2022)
    on 7th July 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: The hon. Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell) is absolutely right to identify the issue that she has in York and in other parts of the country, but will my hon. Friend also bear in mind that these lets generate income for the area too, and many restaurants and other places would probably go out of business were it not for some of these lets? […]

  • Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (7 Jul 2022)
    on 7th July 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: My right hon. Friend has already said that the penetration of high speed broadband has gone up in just three years from 6% to 69%, particularly in rural areas. However, is she aware that in parts of Westminster and Birmingham, for example, it is very, very slow? What can we do to speed up urban broadband? […]

    on 29th June 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: With millions of tonnes of soil being moved across Lichfield, roads closed and the canal obstructed because of HS2, perhaps we can help Scotland by giving them our bit of HS2? […]

  • Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Rough Sleepers: West Midlands (27 Jun 2022)
    on 27th June 2022 at 2:37 pm

    Michael Fabricant: I thank my hon. Friend for mentioning the Mayor of the West Midlands—oh my gosh, I have forgotten his name; oh yes, it has come back to me—Andy Street. How does the Minister assess the effectiveness of the Housing First pilot that the Mayor has initiated in addressing rough sleeping in the west midlands? […]

  • Channel 4 Privatisation (14 Jun 2022)
    on 14th June 2022 at 4:21 pm

    Michael Fabricant: Further to the last question, it is not just Channel 4; for example, it was Netflix that made “Game of Thrones” in Belfast, throwing in millions of pounds—far more than Channel 4, although I do not underestimate Channel 4’s importance. My questions are these. First, will my right hon. Friend set out in her speech that the contract for the sale of this public service broadcaster will... […]

  • Channel 4 Privatisation (14 Jun 2022)
    on 14th June 2022 at 4:21 pm

    Michael Fabricant: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I may have inadvertently misled the House. I said that it was Netflix that produced “Game of Thrones”, but it was not. It was HBO and Sky Atlantic that invested a quarter of a billion pounds in Northern Ireland, considerably more than any other broadcasting company. […]

  • Channel 4 Privatisation (14 Jun 2022)
    on 14th June 2022 at 3:58 pm

    Michael Fabricant: Does the hon. Lady not recall that Channel 4 was dragged kicking and screaming into moving its headquarters outside London? Has she not visited Leeds and has she visited London? Does she seriously think that Leeds can be called the headquarters of Channel 4 when most of the senior management are still firmly anchored in London? […]

  • Health and Social Care: Medicinal Cannabis (14 Jun 2022)
    on 14th June 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: If he will take steps to help ensure access to medicinal cannabis for NHS patients. […]

  • Health and Social Care: Medicinal Cannabis (14 Jun 2022)
    on 14th June 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that answer, particularly as she mentioned 2018, because it was of course her boss, the Secretary of State for Health, who was the pioneer in all this when he was Home Secretary. But there is a “but” coming, and it is that young children are not getting this vital medicine on the NHS. Some are having to pay £2,000 a month, and in the last three years... […]

  • Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Disease Control (9 Jun 2022)
    on 9th June 2022 at 12:00 am

    Michael Fabricant: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to his letter of 6 June 2022, reference PO-1405720, if he will make it his policy not to be a signatory to any treaty with the World Health Organisation which would enable instructions to be given to the Government on when lockdowns may or may not be imposed in any future pandemic; and if he will make a statement. […]
