Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

John Baron: There are pluses and minuses with President Trump, perhaps, but I think he is trying to be a very good friend of the UK. Unlike President Obama, who said that the UK would be at the back of the queue, it is quite clear that President Trump does want to do some form of trade deal with the UK. He is stating the obvious when he says that incorporating protectionist non-tariff barriers is going...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

John Baron: No, I have taken one intervention from the hon. Lady and I am not going to take another. I have taken my two. There are these arrangements right across the globe, and they are not a hindrance to trade. We trade profitably with many countries outside the EU on such terms, and that trade is prospering. Those countries are often faster growing than the EU. The idea that we must protect the...

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

John Baron: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his post. I know he will be well aware of the deep concern on both sides of the House about the extent to which the UK will become a rule taker under the so-called common rulebook. Has he had time to make an early assessment about the percentage of our goods that will be subject to that common rulebook? By way of illustration, can he answer a question that I...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

John Baron: It is generally accepted that the EU has a poor track record on trade deals, in large part because of its protectionist rules and regulations. Does the Prime Minister accept that, in pursuing a common rulebook and promising harmonisation, we would be obliging imports from third countries to abide by those same regulations and therefore make trade deals more difficult to achieve?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

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

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

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

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

John Baron: Perhaps those on the Opposition Benches are missing the central point. In any negotiation, ruling out the possibility of no deal will guarantee the worst outcome. Anyone who has conducted a negotiation in business understands that. If those on the Opposition Benches do not understand it, they are missing the central point.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

John Baron: Is not the importance of the position that the Government are taking that, if a “no deal” option is ruled out, that will guarantee a worse deal in any negotiation? Anyone who has been party to a negotiation will understand that.

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 countries outside...

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 sacrifice...

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...
