Canlyniadau 141–160 o 741 ar gyfer speaker:Christopher Fraser

City of London — [Christopher Fraser in the Chair] (14 Hyd 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Before I call the next speaker, may I remind colleagues that I intend to start the wind-ups at 3.30 pm.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Prostate Cancer (13 Hyd 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Research carried out by the Prostate Cancer Charter for Action shows that, in at least 96 of England's 529 constituencies, the death rate from prostate cancer is well above England's average. Does the Minister accept that this reflects inequalities in NHS prostate cancer services? What is being done to remedy this?

New Member: New Clause 1 — Purchase of tobacco on behalf of children (12 Hyd 2009)

Christopher Fraser: The hon. Lady has stated that the Government hope that they will deter young people from taking up smoking, the logic being that a young person will see a tobacco display and as a result will be encouraged to smoke. If that is the case, why has the Department of Health's recent consultation on this issue ensured that youth smoking and tobacco advertising are not linked? There is no mention of it.

New Member: New Clause 1 — Purchase of tobacco on behalf of children (12 Hyd 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Further to that point, such small shops are very often in villages in constituencies such as mine, where the local services such as post offices have gone and they are therefore the last port of call for villagers to buy what they require. If they go out of business as well, the villages will die.

New Member: New Clause 1 — Purchase of tobacco on behalf of children (12 Hyd 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Does the hon. Lady accept that a figure of between £1,850 and £5,000 is far too much for a small retailer to bear?

New Member: New Clause 1 — Purchase of tobacco on behalf of children (12 Hyd 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Further to the point made by the hon. Member for Montgomeryshire (Lembit Öpik), the Association of Convenience Stores has said that the display ban could cost each store a minimum of £1,800, or even as much as £5,000. That is far too high for a store to bear in these economic times. I am sure that my hon. Friend will agree that those same store owners are scrupulous about how they sell...

New Member: New Clause 1 — Purchase of tobacco on behalf of children (12 Hyd 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am sure that my hon. Friend is also particularly sad because the group of amendments affects businesses in all our constituencies and it would therefore be good to see Labour Members standing up for their local companies, especially in difficult economic times.

Swine Flu (20 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am very grateful to the Minister for her clear answers to my questions. When decisions on prioritisation are taken, will local considerations be taken into account, so that the practitioners on the ground locally will have the final say?

Swine Flu (20 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Does the Minister accept that many people who feel vulnerable will naturally and instinctively wish to go to see their GP, rather than go online or make a telephone call? With respect, those services have historically not been as successful as they have been set out to be in the past. Added pressure will be put on GPs because people will instinctively still call them first.

Swine Flu (20 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am pleased to have secured this debate on what is an extremely pressing issue-even at this late hour. I have been trying to secure a debate for some weeks in order to raise concerns about our preparedness for swine flu. I had hoped to secure a more general debate so that colleagues could also contribute. I believe that the Government should have arranged for a debate in their own time, as...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Caring for the Elderly (15 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Like others, I pay tribute to those colleagues who have spoken in this debate, because many of us feel passionately about this issue. In particular, I want to refer to something that the hon. Member for South Thanet (Dr. Ladyman), a former Minister, said about the Opposition motion. The issue has been on the Opposition agenda for some time. From where I am standing, I assure him that it is...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Caring for the Elderly (15 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I agree 100 per cent. with my hon. Friend. There is no doubt that families try. No matter what their political persuasion or where they live, they try to help each other as best they can. At the end of the day, however, selling one's own home to pay for care is not the solution. Over the past 12 years, many people waiting for help from the Government have done their best to sort, but selling...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Caring for the Elderly (15 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I assume that during the election campaign the hon. Gentleman will be explaining in his own words how his party is going to offer free social care to the elderly-and how that will be costed.

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Caring for the Elderly (15 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Does the hon. Lady accept that, as I mentioned earlier, there is cynicism among elderly people on the doorsteps of Norwich, North? They are saying on a daily basis that there is too little, too late; the Government have ignored them for too long, and there is suddenly a bit of action when a by-election comes up. Does she accept that they have had enough and that that will be reflected in next...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Caring for the Elderly (15 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: I am sure that my hon. Friend will appreciate that the desperate plight of the elderly is being raised on the doorsteps in the Norwich, North by-election. People have had enough of the inaction of this Government. Does he agree that that will be shown in the voting pattern at the election next week?

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Caring for the Elderly (15 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: The Secretary of State said yesterday: "it would be wrong to force the pace of that debate."-[ Official Report, 14 July 2009; Vol. 496, c. 162.] Does my hon. Friend the Member for Eastbourne (Mr. Waterson) accept that, for people who are dying in poverty because of the inaction of this Government, 12 years is far too long to wait?

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day]: Young People in the Recession ( 6 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Will the Minister give way?

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day]: Young People in the Recession ( 6 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Will the Minister give me a guarantee that he will meet the consortium from Norfolk to discuss the issue at the earliest possible opportunity before the recess?

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day]: Young People in the Recession ( 6 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Given the time constraints we are under, I shall try to restrict my comments to the debate in hand. However, following my hon. Friend the Member for Monmouth (David T.C. Davies), let me say that there are many subjects beyond the motion that need separate debates. I am pleased to stand up for the young people of South-West Norfolk. I know that all hon. Members here will be concerned by the...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day]: Young People in the Recession ( 6 Gor 2009)

Christopher Fraser: Will my hon. Friend give way?
