Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

John Baron: I speak to the amendment that stands in my name and those of my right hon. and hon. Friends. At times, although not so much in this debate, there has been a sadness of tone in these debates, but I wish to recognise how well the Prime Minister has handled herself during these testing times and commend her for that. Part of the problem is the way we have approached these negotiations from the...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

John Baron: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

John Baron: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s generosity. All the evidence shows that inward investment is about relative advantage. It is about lower corporation tax rates and flexible labour markets. It is about a skilled workforce and our universities. Tariffs of 3% to 5% are not as important as other factors, and I suggest that he looks at the record inward investment that we have seen in this...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

John Baron: I totally concur with what my right hon. Friend said about divided nations, but may I urge him to be cautious about relying too heavily on economic forecasts? We all remember the Treasury, the Bank of England and the International Monetary Fund predicting economic woe by Christmas 2016 if we voted to leave, with talk of 500,000 extra unemployed, a do-it-yourself economic disaster and so on....

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

John Baron: The one thing that I would suggest to the Chancellor is that the problem with these forecasts is that they do not anticipate a response from the Government to a given set of scenarios. That is one reason why the forecasts in 2016 were so wrong.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

John Baron: The Prime Minister is well aware that many of us have wished her well in these negotiations, but does she understand and recognise that many of us also have concerns about the backstop and equate it to entering a contract of employment that gives the sole right of termination to the other party?

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

John Baron: I am neither a lawyer nor a constitutional historian, but I concur with my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke), the Father of the House, and indeed, my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg), in suggesting that it is regrettable that we have got to this position. One would not—Government Members, certainly—start from this position...

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

John Baron: The Prime Minister is aware that many of us have wished her well in these negotiations, but it appears that the withdrawal agreement sacrifices much and secures very little. Article 129(3) states that “the United Kingdom shall refrain, during the transition period, from any action…which is likely to be prejudicial to the Union’s interest”. Does this mean that the UK will be unable,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Oct 2018)

John Baron: In welcoming the Japanese Prime Minister’s suggestion that we can join the Trans-Pacific Partnership when we leave the EU, and in wishing my right hon. Friend well in the upcoming negotiations, will she please confirm that our joining and fully participating in the TPP will not be hindered by the common rulebook of the Chequers agreement and that the whole United Kingdom will benefit?

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

John Baron: I wish the Secretary of State a productive summer—it could be a very interesting one. The EU has a poor track record when it comes to trade deals generally, which is why we trade with the majority of the rest of the world on World Trade Organisation terms. What assurances can he give us that, in the run-up to the publication of the White Paper, we will be meaningfully preparing to leave on...
