MP asks Prime Minister question during statement on European Council

Sir Tony Baldry (Banbury) (Con): Is not the fact that EU Commission officials can describe a demand for €2 billion as “an adjustment” an indication of just how far they have lost touch with ordinary voters, not just in Britain, but throughout the whole EU?

Baldry intervenes in Five Year Forward View statement

Sir Tony Baldry (Banbury) (Con): The Commonwealth Fund’s recent study of 11 national health systems, including those of Sweden, France, Germany and the United States, found that the NHS in England was ranked top for a safe, effective, co-ordinated, efficient, patient-centred care system.

Oral Question (Health): Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

Sir Tony Baldry (Banbury) (Con): Will my hon. Friend confirm that there is absolutely no requirement in TTIP for this or any future Government to open NHS health care services to further competition and private sector provision, and that TTIP will have no effect on the ability of local NHS commissioners to decide who delivers services to patients?
