Iran Nuclear Deal (8 May 2019)

John Baron: Thank you for granting this urgent question, Mr Speaker. To ask the Government to make a statement on the status of the Iran nuclear deal.

Iran Nuclear Deal (8 May 2019)

John Baron: It is now a year since the US Government unilaterally withdrew from the joint comprehensive plan of action, better known as the Iranian nuclear deal. The Trump Administration have recently announced the forthcoming expansion of oil sanctions to all countries that buy oil from Iran, and have dispatched an aircraft carrier to the Gulf. This morning, the Iranian Government announced that they...

European Council (11 Apr 2019)

John Baron: The fact remains that we would have left the EU by now on World Trade Organisation terms if the Prime Minister had not extended deadlines. The investment decisions underpinning our strong economic performance in recent years have been taken in the full knowledge that we could be leaving on WTO terms. Will the Prime Minister therefore show more confidence and commit to the House that if this...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill (3 Apr 2019)

John Baron: I find it very strange, this condescending view that, “People did not know what they were voting for first time around, so we are going to give them a second vote. If we don’t like that result, we will give them a third and a fourth.” It is complete nonsense.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill (3 Apr 2019)

John Baron: No. Mr Speaker has told us to be brief, and I will be brief. I ask the House to reflect for a moment and use moderation when it comes to this issue of so-called crashing out or falling off a cliff by leaving on no-deal WTO terms. I gently remind the House that in 2016 there were lots of dire predictions about what would happen if we voted to leave. We had predictions from the trade bodies,...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill (3 Apr 2019)

John Baron: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. I am sure he will agree that in addition to the emotion the people were proved right, because despite the predictions of doom and gloom in 2016, the economic reality since is that we have had a strong period of growth, and those investment decisions have been made in the full knowledge that we could be leaving with no deal on WTO terms.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill (3 Apr 2019)

John Baron: The right hon. Lady is being very generous in giving way, and I appreciate the manner in which she has introduced the debate, but may I gently remind her that predictions about the consequences of voting to leave or no deal have proved very wrong in the past? We heard dire economic predictions in 2016—for instance, it was predicted that by Christmas that year 500,000 more people would be...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

John Baron: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. You know me not to be one to play games in this place. With respect, may I ask you to reconsider when it comes to motions (A) and (B)? The reason why I ask—we live in unusual times, so I do not apologise for making this request—is that motion (A) is new, in the sense that it reflects the withdrawal agreement as amended by the backstop. I suggest to you...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I voted against meaningful votes 1 and 2, and I will be voting against meaningful vote 3 this afternoon. Let us be absolutely clear: no matter how it is dressed up by the Government, this is a vote on the Prime Minister’s withdrawal agreement. I think it is a very, very bad deal. Part of the reason why we have arrived at this point, where the House cannot support the deal, is that the...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: No, I am going to make progress. If I finish beforehand, I will take the intervention, but a lot of Members want to speak in the debate. There are two central questions the Government have continued to fail to answer. The first was raised by our friends in the DUP, who made it clear that the meaningful vote would put in place an internal border within the United Kingdom. It is not just the...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I am not going to take an intervention from the Front Bench, who have negotiated a disastrous deal for us. It is as simple as that—I am sorry.

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I did promise my hon. Friend the Member for Rugby (Mark Pawsey).

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: Because my hon. Friend will remember, as I do, the dire predictions if we voted to leave in 2016, which never materialised. They were so poor that the Bank of England and many others had to publicly apologise, and since then we have seen record low unemployment, record high manufacturing output and record investment, and those decisions in recent years have been made on the basis that we...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I am sorry, I will not gave way. I am going to continue for a little bit. The second reason why I will vote against the agreement this afternoon is the indefinite nature of the backstop. I fully agree with those who say that there is a need for compromise. I do not like the transition arrangement, but I can hold my nose to it, because in a sense it is no worse than being in the EU, but what I...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: May I urge my right hon. Friend to think again before deciding to change his mind and support what to all intents and purposes is a meaningful vote 3? We do not know what the future holds for sure, but we do know for sure that we can only decide on the facts that are before us, and we know this is a bad deal that could lock the UK indefinitely in a backstop for a very long time. When deciding...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

John Baron: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that if we vote for this deal this afternoon, we will, for the first time in almost 300 years of our constitutional history, be drawing a line between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom? It may only be a trade barrier, but that is how these things start, and that will be under the direct control, in many respects, of the EU.

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I beg to move motion (B), That this House agrees that the UK shall leave the EU on 12 April 2019 without a deal.

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

John Baron: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for choosing this motion. I refer right hon. and hon. Members to motion (B)—[Interruption.]

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (27 Mar 2019)

John Baron: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Just so that the House is absolutely clear, my motion (B) reads: That this House agrees that the UK shall leave the EU on 12 April 2019 without a deal. May I suggest to the House that, as we stand at this point in time, this is, in law, the default position of triggering article 50? We all knew, those of us who were here and voted for it in February 2017, what we were...
