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. My only regret is that my Whip is not here to see the day. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Mr Cash) and the hon. 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)

Steven Baker: Does the Minister accept that even when the EU controls its money within its rules, it still manages to waste it? I am thinking in particular of a beautiful hotel I visited in Spain that was in the middle of nowhere-unless one was a skydiver, there was no reason to visit the local village. It seemed a total waste of public money.

Petition — Reform of Health Services (Wycombe) (31 Jan 2011)

Steven Baker: The petitioners of the residents of Wycombe declare that they are concerned and unhappy about the continuing loss of control in the hospital services that are in the constituency. The 1,547 petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Health to take steps to ensure that the constituents of Wycombe are given the freedom to use the latest health...

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

Steven Baker: I begin by paying tribute to Mr Callum Morton, the president of the students union at Amersham and Wycombe college, where about a third of the students receive EMA. He has made his case with great force and maturity, and I am sure that Amersham and Wycombe students will agree that he has served them well. I should like to address the case advanced by the Opposition. The shadow Secretary of...

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. I shall not bore the House with my own background, but I would certainly have qualified for EMA when I was a sixth-former. How did I cope? The answer is that I...

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

Steven Baker: I cannot help wondering whether the hon. Gentleman realises that Buckinghamshire, for example, has inherited an underfunding of 17% per head in comparison with the national average. I am afraid that Labour did leave us a legacy of underfunding, although only in certain parts of the country.

Loans to Ireland Bill (Allocation of Time) (15 Dec 2010)

Steven Baker: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend for giving me the opportunity to say just how much I stand behind the Prime Minister in his remarks, which my hon. Friend has so generously shared with the House. However, does my hon. Friend agree that if this bail-out is necessary at all, it is an emergency?

Steven Baker: What recent discussions she has had with the Secretary of State for the Home Department on policing in Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Policing (8 Dec 2010)

Steven Baker: I am sure that Welsh police will welcome the Government's refreshing approach. What else will the Minister do to liberate Welsh police from bureaucracy and get them back on the beat?

Written Answers — Health: Wycombe Hospital (2 Dec 2010)

Steven Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of the running costs of Wycombe hospital was paid to the private finance initiative (PFI) provider in each year from 2000 to 2009; and what estimate he has made of the proportion of running costs that will be paid to the PFI provider in (a) 2010 and (b) 2011.

Backbench Business — [11th allotted day]: Banking Reform (29 Nov 2010)

Steven Baker: My hon. Friend makes a compelling case. Will he consider the case of fixed-rate products-fixed-rate savings or fixed-rate mortgages-because it seems to me that such products are bound to bring the savings and loans business into contact with the investment business, through interest rate swaps?

Backbench Business — [11th allotted day]: Banking Reform (29 Nov 2010)

Steven Baker: Like other Members, I welcome this debate and congratulate the right hon. Member for Oldham West and Royton (Mr Meacher) on securing it. I will oppose the motion for two reasons. First, I believe that the Government have acted briskly within the terrain of the current debate. I will speak about that terrain, because I believe it should be moved. Secondly, I should like to challenge the...

Backbench Business — [11th allotted day]: Banking Reform (29 Nov 2010)

Steven Baker: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Transport (CSR) (25 Nov 2010)

Steven Baker: In my constituency, Wycombe, the M40 had similar beginnings, so I recognise the hon. Lady's point. Noise is a dreadful problem for my constituents who live along the motorway. Is noise also a problem in the case she describes?

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Transport (CSR) (25 Nov 2010)

Steven Baker: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate. Will she join me in recognising the value of free advanced driver training from organisations such as the Institute of Advanced Motorists, which is available at very little cost to drivers, in raising driving standards and improving safety?
