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

John Baron: I will in a second—I am going to make some progress first. Although article 50 can be extended—I voted against that—we should still, as a House, reflect on that vote and recognise that, while most of us in this place want a good deal, many of us have taken the view that the deal on offer from the Prime Minister is not a good deal, and therefore the legal default position is that we...

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

John Baron: My hon. Friend is right to seek clarification. The answer is no—my preference, as I have stated, is that we leave with a deal, with the backstop duly amended, so that we could not as a country be caught in it indefinitely. That would be my preference, and then this motion would no longer apply. The date is set in the motion because, as he will know, that is the date given by the EU if there...

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

John Baron: I will respond to the intervention by the hon. Member for North Down (Lady Hermon), if I may, and then move on. I have great respect for the people of Northern Ireland. Having served there in the 1980s and got the medals to prove it, I take into account what the people of Northern Ireland, as part of our Union, have to say. At the same time, we are part of a United Kingdom, and there are...

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

John Baron: I will not. I have to take at face value those reassurances by Ministers that we are indeed prepared for no deal. There is a prevalent argument that no deal would lead to disaster not only in this place but outside it. I respectfully point out that the people making that argument are often the very same ones who predicted doom and gloom in 2016; they said that would be the result if we voted...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

John Baron: Most of us would prefer a good deal to no deal at all, but may I urge the Prime Minister to ignore the dire forecasts about what would happen should we leave on World Trade Organisation terms? It is the same people who predicted doom and gloom in 2016 if we voted to leave. Since then, we have had record low unemployment, record high investment and record manufacturing output. Those people...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I gently remind the Prime Minister that this House has expressed a view in law: to leave on 29 March, with or without a deal. Given the constant assurances we have had about no-deal preparations, including in answer to my urgent question last week, may I urge her now to face down this remain-dominated Westminster bubble and support leaving on no-deal, World Trade Organisation terms, in order...

No-Deal EU Exit Preparations (20 Mar 2019)

John Baron: (Urgent Question): To ask the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on no-deal Brexit preparations.

No-Deal EU Exit Preparations (20 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I thank the Minister for that response. It is important that the Government recognise the current position. Whatever the possibilities for how Members may vote in this place or how the EU may respond to requests for extensions, he is absolutely right to suggest that the current legal default position is that the United Kingdom will be leaving the European Union on 29 March, with or without a...

No-Deal EU Exit Preparations (20 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I was relieving myself, Mr Speaker. [Laughter.]

No-Deal EU Exit Preparations (20 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I will do so. Thank you very much, Mr Speaker.

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I refer Members to my business interests as listed in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Very briefly, I encourage a note of moderation when talking about no deal. Many of us, if not all of us, prefer a good deal to no deal—that is one of the key logics of leaving the European Union—but I suggest that WTO rules are not the so-called disaster that everyone is suggesting. We...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

John Baron: Unfortunately, there is an element of truth to that, but I would not want to label everyone as being in that camp. Many Members have quoted predictions about the future, but I suggest that we have to keep the argument and the debate grounded in reality. People need to remember that there were many predictions of economic woe and gloom should we vote to leave the EU in 2016. They came from the...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

John Baron: rose—

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I thank the right hon. and learned Gentleman for giving way, but I implore him to use the language of moderation when talking about no deal. He will remember the dire economic warnings during the referendum campaign of, for example, 500,000 extra people unemployed by Christmas 2016. Those things did not come about. So bad were the predictions that the Bank of England had to publicly apologise...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

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

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Mar 2019)

John Baron: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 13 March.

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I am sure all of us concur with the Prime Minister’s remarks about the disaster in Ethiopia. Many of us recognise the Prime Minister’s efforts to secure a deal, but given that we profitably trade with the majority of the world’s GDP outside the EU on largely World Trade Organisation, no-deal terms, has the time not come to look beyond this remain-dominated Westminster bubble and for all...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

John Baron: Most of us in this place commend my right hon. Friend and her team for their stamina in these negotiations. We accept that there is a political dimension, but will she clarify one point for those of us who are concerned about the indefinite nature of the backstop? That is that in future, this country could unilaterally decide to walk away from the agreement if there was a fundamental change...

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Opinion (12 Mar 2019)

John Baron: I commend my right hon. and learned Friend for the way he is pursuing the remit of his office. He is, of course, right that there is a political dimension to the decision that we will all have to make this evening, but may I ask him this question? He has confirmed today that, if there were a fundamental change of circumstances, this country would have the right to walk away from the...
