European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Baron: Before speaking in support of Government amendments (a) and (b) in lieu of Lords amendments 1 and 2, to which I have put my name, I will briefly touch on the issue of immigration, which has been mentioned a number of times, particularly by the Scottish nationalists. My education was very international. I did not return to start my education in this country until the age of 11. I suggest to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Baron: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Baron: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way on that point?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Baron: May I return the Solicitor General to what seems to have been the Opposition’s first admission that they are seeking a customs union that would not allow us to negotiate trade deals with countries outside the EU? They might be pessimistic about the way forward—they have quoted the CBI—but many people out there are saying that, provided we can negotiate trade deals with...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Baron: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

John Baron: May I just remind the right hon. and learned Gentleman that the vast majority of people, not only at the referendum but at the general election—85% of those who voted—voted to leave the customs union and the single market? It was a very clear result. Let me ask him this one straightforward question, for clarity: in their search for a customs union, are the Opposition willing to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

John Baron: In addition to the referendum, will the hon. Lady reflect on the fact that at last year’s general election, both parties stood on a ticket of leaving the customs union, ending freedom of movement and repatriating our laws. Both parties were quite unequivocal, and that result needs to be respected.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Navy (11 Jun 2018)

John Baron: What assessment he has made of the strategic importance of sea power for UK security and prosperity.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Negligence (21 May 2018)

John Baron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, in how many medical negligence claims against the NHS which were settled in the last five years legal proceedings were issued; and in how many such claims (a) damages payments were made, (b) the issue of proceedings has been required in order to obtain court approval of the settlement and (c) damages payments were not made.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iran Nuclear Deal (15 May 2018)

John Baron: What recent discussions he has had with his international counterparts on the future of the Iran nuclear deal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iran Nuclear Deal (15 May 2018)

John Baron: Recent tensions between Israel and Iran underline the importance of the nuclear deal, and we should not forget how close the west and Iran came to conflict over the nuclear issue in 2012. The Government have rightly maintained their full support for the agreement, but exactly how far are they prepared to go, in concert with their allies, to keep this deal alive—including, if necessary,...

Iran Nuclear Deal (9 May 2018)

John Baron: We should not underestimate the importance of maintaining a positive direction of travel in the region, particularly given that it will take a series of steps to reach desired outcomes. Given that all the evidence suggests that Iran has adhered to the agreement, has the time come for the international community to act in concert in pursuing and maintaining this agreement, even if that means...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

John Baron: I actually agree with the hon. Gentleman. There are aspects of this case that are deeply concerning, and I hope that the Government learn from it. May I suggest that, at the end of the day, we have to protect Government records and civil servants’ advice to Governments to ensure that civil servants can give advice with candour? Given that we will have an inquiry, which we all hope will...

Cancer Targets — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

John Baron: I thank everyone who has participated in the debate, and the Minister for his response. No one doubts his genuine care and concern about cancer patients and the need to improve treatment. I will look closely at his words. The national support fund may not be quite as new as he thinks, but putting that to one side, all I urge him to do is to look at the pleas for help from the cancer frontline...

Cancer Targets — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

John Baron: Will the Minister give way?

Cancer Targets — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

John Baron: The Minister will be aware that about a quarter of all cancers are first detected as late as at an emergency procedure. What I would like him to do in the few minutes he has left is to focus on the need to break the 62-day target link with the transformation funding because it is unfair, penalising as it does those cancer services that need help most. Will he consider that?

Cancer Targets — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

John Baron: For a whole host of reasons mentioned by the hon. Lady, one area that perhaps shows promise in improving early diagnosis is breast cancer. In general, however, we fall behind international averages at that one-year point. The whole point of focusing the NHS on one-year survival rates, and encouraging it to improve those rates, is to send a message down the line and encourage early diagnosis...

Cancer Targets — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

John Baron: The first point that the hon. Lady made about the iniquitous position that many CCGs now find themselves in is a strong one. The Government have given transformation funding of £200 million to NHS England, but a lot of it is sitting there when it is desperately needed, particularly by those that need to do a lot of catching up. It was not meant to be withheld in such a fashion. It is...

Cancer Targets — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

John Baron: I beg to move, That this House has considered NHS cancer targets. I thank Mr Speaker for granting this important debate, and I thank you, Mr Streeter, for chairing it and the Minister for taking time out of his busy schedule to address it. The matters I will raise today, as briefly as possible, are matters I have raised throughout my nine years at the helm of the all-party parliamentary group...

Cancer Targets — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

John Baron: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his kind words. I am aware of those statistics, and I will come to the 62-day target specifically later in my address. He is right to say that many CCGs and cancer alliances are not close to achieving many of those targets. That is obviously a problem when treating cancer, but it highlights a bigger issue: we should be focusing on outcome indicators rather than...
