Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: Court of Auditors 2009 Report (2 Feb 2011)

Steven Baker: I welcome the Minister's remarks, but given the figures that my hon. Friend the Member for Daventry (Chris Heaton-Harris) quoted on the European Parliament's voting record, does she not agree that it seems rather futile to expect that the European Parliament might fail to discharge?

Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: Court of Auditors 2009 Report (2 Feb 2011)

Steven Baker: It is a huge privilege and tremendous pleasure to rise to speak in support of the Government in relation to the European Union.

Member for Luton North (Kelvin Hopkins), who have seen this farce go on for year after sorry year with these accounts failing to...

Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: Court of Auditors 2009 Report (2 Feb 2011)

Opposition Day — [9th allotted day]: Education Maintenance Allowance (19 Jan 2011)

Steven Baker: No, thank you. In the end, each of us must read our correspondence and try to walk in the shoes of our constituents. I will therefore take no lectures from those who pretend that they have some special connection to a particular group.

National Insurance Contributions Bill: Clause 3 — Increased product of additional rates to be paid into National Insurance Fund (13 Jan 2011)
