Mercer’s Fiji Lobbying Questions

Mercer is said to have been approached by a fake lobbying company who are believed to have asked him to set up an APPG on Fiji. On 20th May he asked this written question:

Patrick Mercer: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the UK’s investment in public transport in Fiji; and if he will make a statement. [155619]

And on 16th May:

Patrick Mercer: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) what discussions his Department has had with the government of Fiji about that country’s human rights record; [154106]

(2) what discussions his Department has had with the government of Fiji about the status of Fiji within the Commonwealth; [154107]

(3) what discussions his Department has had with the government of Fiji about the effects on Fiji of its suspension from the Commonwealth; [155600]

(4) what his policy is on the readmission of Fiji to the Commonwealth; and if he will make a statement. [155617]

There is also this EDM from March, proposed by Mercer:

“That this House recognises that the government of Fiji is making all reasonable efforts to restore democracy; believes that in the light of ongoing hardship being endured by its businesses, there is no justification for Fiji’s continued suspension from the Commonwealth; and, therefore, urges the Government to arrange a ministerial visit in order to help prepare for and assist its readmission.”

Hook, line and sinker if, and it still remains an if, these are at the behest of a fake company as alleged.
