Terrorist Offenders (Restriction of Early Release) Bill (12 Feb 2020)

Duncan Baker: This Government are putting their money where their mouth is and doing exactly what they said they would do to deal with this urgent and specific problem, and I want to thank everybody who has helped put this Bill together.

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Duncan Baker: The best piece of advice I was given on delivering my maiden speech was, “Don’t worry”—easier said than done, I guess—“treat it like a love letter”—I have not written one of those for a few years—“only that it is back to your constituents.” My wife told me—I should be careful about what I say because she is watching—that I did not have a romantic bone in my body, so...

Does the Secretary of State agree that the Agriculture Bill brings an excellent opportunity to tackle climate change head-on and that, as an industry, the farming community has an important part to play in helping with our environment?

Health and Social Care (16 Jan 2020)

Duncan Baker: I thank the Secretary of State for giving way and for visiting me on my campaign to become the newly elected Member for North Norfolk.
