Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Liothyronine (5 Mar 2019)

John Baron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what plans the Government has to ensure NHS patients throughout England continue to receive liothyronine after recent price increase in the cost of that drug to the NHS.

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: The Secretary of State knows we wish him well with these negotiations, but can he confirm that, when it comes to addressing the concerns of Conservative Members and some Opposition Members about the backstop, what is achieved will not only be meaningful but have a cast-iron guarantee of legal force?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I will try to abide by your instructions, Mr Speaker; thank you for calling me so early. It is customary to say what a pleasure it is to follow the previous speaker, but I must suggest to my friend, the hon. Member for North East Fife (Stephen Gethins), that the SNP continually talks down the United Kingdom to such an extent that most people in Scotland do not even listen any more. SNP...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I actually think that is quite questionable given the SNP’s recent election results and how badly it is doing—

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: Just wait a minute—sit down. I have taken one intervention. We should look at how badly the SNP is doing in terms of representing the interests of the EU, as it were, with regard to election results. Let me put the SNP to one side for a second and suggest to my fellow fusilier, the Secretary of State, that, as a leaver, I also accept that there is a need for compromise with regard to the...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I am afraid the hon. Gentleman misheard me. I said that we trade with the majority of the world outside the EU on WTO terms—that is a fact—and we trade very profitably with them. That is the issue. While it is clear that most of us would prefer a good deal to no deal, the exaggeration of how bad WTO terms are has to be set in context.

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I am sorry, but I am going to finish because I do not think that a third intervention will add anything to my time, to be perfectly honest. The Labour party policy on a second referendum is condescending because it says that people did not know what they voted for the first time round. The predictions of doom and gloom from the establishment in this country—the Bank of England, the...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: The hon. Gentleman tends simply to ignore the fact that the British economy is doing well. We have record inward investment, record low unemployment and record manufacturing output, despite all the so-called “uncertainty”, and the doom and gloom that the SNP predicts. Do not forget that the predictions last time were so badly wrong that the Bank of England had to apologise very publicly...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: rose—

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

John Baron: Unfortunately, amendment (j) was not selected, but I am sure my right hon. Friend will agree that the Government will have no problem in accepting in principle, and I look forward to hearing about that. Many of us who have wished the Prime Minister well recognise that compromise is required on both sides in these negotiations. The transition period is not brilliant but the backstop does have...

Leaving the European Union (26 Feb 2019)

John Baron: May I gently remind the Prime Minister that we trade on World Trade Organisation terms with the rest of the world outside the EU and that we do so very profitably? She should not be deflected. Colleagues knew what they were voting for when triggering article 50. A concern must be that, at this crucial stage of the negotiations with the EU, the Prime Minister’s next steps will now make a...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Professions: Qualifications (18 Feb 2019)

John Baron: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether professional qualifications and registrations will continue to be mutually recognised between the UK and the EU in the event that the UK leaves the EU with no deal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Personnel (18 Feb 2019)

John Baron: What steps his Department is taking to increase recruitment into the armed forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces Personnel (18 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I suggest that the Government should not take any lessons from Labour about manpower shortages, given today’s news about desertions. The National Audit Office has recently confirmed that Capita has not recruited the required numbers of regulars and reservists in any year since the contract began in 2012. Clearly, extra resources are needed. May I also suggest that the Government consider...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

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

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

John Baron: The right hon. and learned Gentleman is being generous with his time. In contrast to what he just claimed, the Secretary of State’s point was admirably clear. A good deal is preferable to no deal, but if there is no deal we will leave the EU on 29 March on those terms. Labour Members have an unfortunate habit of taking everything that the EU says as gospel, which is clearly not the case,...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I encourage the Government to keep their nerve during these negotiations. I accept that the vast majority in this place would favour a good deal over no deal, but will the Government confirm for absolute clarity that if we are not able to secure a good deal—probably courtesy of intransigence by the EU—we will not only leave on 29 March, but will leave on no-deal/World Trade Organisation...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I think we all agree about the importance of keeping our nerve, and keeping no deal on the table actually makes a good deal more likely, but will the Secretary of State answer my specific question and confirm that if we do not achieve a good deal on 29 March, we will not just leave the EU, but will leave on no-deal terms?

Leaving the EU (12 Feb 2019)

John Baron: The Prime Minister is absolutely right to hold her nerve. The EU could write the textbook on 11th-hour deals. Most colleagues in this place prefer a good deal to no deal, but can she reassure the House that should we leave on 29 March on no-deal WTO terms, we are sufficiently prepared?

Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill [Lords] (11 Feb 2019)

John Baron: I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. The Economic Secretary to the Treasury will be aware of our exchanges in Committee regarding EU regulations as they relate to key information documents and how KIDs are adversely affecting the assessment of investment trusts. The trade bodies oppose them, including the Association of Investment Companies, which...
