Weekly Round Up of Parliamentary Nonsense III

A shorter than usual round of of parliamentary nonsense this week. Who knows? Maybe our erstwhile democratic representatives have been discussing items of national importance. Such as why terrorist are now being granted asylum for example.

I digress....

Shona McIsaac: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many reptiles were imported into (a) the UK and (b) the EU each year between 2000 and 2005

Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what estimate she has made of the number of problem gamblers in Tamworth

Norman Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average fruit and vegetable consumption per person was in the UK in each year since 1997, broken down by household income.

Andrew Gwynne: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many passenger trains have used Platform 0 at Stockport railway station since it became operational.

There you have it - I, personally, am truly disappointed not to see Gregory Barker's Chewing Gum Crusade continuing. Come on Greg your constituents demand action!
