Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2020)

Steven Baker: In High Wycombe, joy and celebration abound, because just last Monday, Wycombe Wanderers football club were promoted to the championship. I put on record how proud of them the whole town is. It is a miraculous achievement and I hope that my hon. Friend the Minister will join me in congratulating them. The first point I want to make about the Government’s business is that it is time to...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2020)

Steven Baker: I would not expect my hon. Friend to go any further than that today and I am very grateful to him for what he has said. That will have been heard and I am grateful to him. In the urgent question earlier, I said something about Legatum’s work on Russia, which I think is honourable and noble. It would be strange indeed if Mr Chandler was connected to Russian intelligence, given that he has...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2020)

Misuse of Nitrous Oxide (21 Jul 2020)

Misuse of Nitrous Oxide (21 Jul 2020)

Steven Baker: The hon. Lady is making a really powerful speech. I cannot help noticing that in Wycombe we see piles of these canisters at the roadside. As a motorcyclist, I have often been conscious when looking at little steel rollers, in effect, that they could cause a major fatal accident on a bicycle or a motorcycle, or possibly in a car. I really appreciate the opportunity to put that on the record,...

Windrush Lessons Learned Review (21 Jul 2020)

Steven Baker: This excellent statement puts the Home Office well on the way to establishing a culture of honour, which will ensure that we treat people so much better, and it will change how they feel about themselves and how they feel about our country. So I congratulate the Government on what my right hon. Friend has done. What will she do, though, to make sure that “people, not cases” is more than...

Economic Update (8 Jul 2020)

Steven Baker: With his plan for jobs, my right hon. Friend has, like Roosevelt, given a masterclass in economic interventionism, but it is quite expensive.

Coronavirus: Job-Support Schemes (7 Jul 2020)

Steven Baker: I begin by referring Members to my declared shareholding in Glint Pay. I thank HMRC for what it has done to put these schemes in place. It is the most extraordinary achievement that it has managed to put in place the coronavirus job retention scheme and the self-employment income support scheme.
