Royal Assent: European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (16 Mar 2011)

Steven Baker: I am most grateful for that. We have talked about political economy, and great matters are at stake. It seems to me that there have always been two visions for Europe: a classical liberal vision and a vision of a so-called social Europe—an interventionist Europe. A classical liberal Europe would enable free movement of people, services and goods, all of which are to be applauded because we...

Royal Assent: European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (16 Mar 2011)

Steven Baker: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for that, but the question is not whether we should help our friends in Europe, but how we should do so. Everybody here is interested in securing the maximum of human flourishing right across Europe—I do not doubt that—but the question is how to do that. Should it be done through the omnipotence of the state or through free trade, free markets and...

However, I want to place on the record my profound misgivings about the huge centralisation of...

Royal Assent: European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (16 Mar 2011)

Steven Baker: ...we get bogged down either in procedural matters or, matters that verge on the nationalistic, but this evening he has transcended that old territory and talked about what is good for the UK and Europe in broader terms. I shall attempt to add to his remarks. If we wish to say something about what is going on in Europe today, we must talk about the broader sweep of political economy, and I...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Aerospace (31 Jan 2017)

Steven Baker: ...the question yet, Mr Speaker. In that former career, I saw several examples of our aerospace competitiveness being diminished by the political enforcement of collaboration in engineering across Europe. Will the Minister ensure that future collaboration across Europe on aerospace happens where that is productive, not where it suits geopolitical objectives?

Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (30 Jan 2018)

Steven Baker: ..., including, I am sorry to say, the hon. Lady, keep provoking as much division as possible.

Steven Baker: May I draw my right hon. Friend’s attention to the initiative for a free and prosperous Europe which was launched yesterday with the support of think-tanks and non-governmental organisations across the continent?

Bill Presented: Duty to publish information on outcome of negotiations between member States (8 Dec 2015)

Steven Baker: I wonder whether my hon. Friend has seen, as I have, the poster produced by the pro-EU BSE—Britain Stronger in Europe—campaign which co-opts the Governor of the Bank of England under the headline “Think UK’s economy is stronger in Europe”. BSE has also co-opted the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of India. Does my hon. Friend share my concern that it appears...

European Communities Act 1972 (Repeal) Bill (26 Oct 2012)

Steven Baker: ...who sit on the Front Bench than he is, and I will return for the second if not the third time to a speech made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister in Prague in 2007, when he said of the European Union: “It is the last gasp of an outdated ideology, a philosophy that has no place in our new world of freedom, a world which demands that we fight this bureaucratic over-reach and lead...

[Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (8 Dec 2011)

Steven Baker: ...under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Harwich and North Essex (Mr Jenkin) on securing this debate. I confess that I was for a long time a great fan of the European Union. I was very pro-Europe and internationalist, as indeed I still am, but the Lisbon treaty caused me to look closely at the nature of the European Union. I do not have to find my...

Bill Presented: Serious and Organised Crime: Prüm Convention (8 Dec 2015)

EU Referendum Leaflet — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (9 May 2016)
