Baldry contributes to debate on the UK’s justice and home affairs opt-outs

Sir Tony Baldry (Banbury) (Con): It is always a pleasure to follow a brother knight. I take this opportunity to echo the comments of the right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz) in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) on becoming a brother knight. The whole House should congratulate you, Madam Deputy Speaker, on having become a Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, an order of chivalry considerably more senior than that of we mere Knights Bachelor.

That is one of the many joys, like all-night sittings, that younger Members will never enjoy.

MP intervenes during industrial action statement to the House

Sir Tony Baldry (Banbury) (Con): Was it not Lord Hutton, a former Labour Cabinet Minister, who made it clear that as we are all living longer, everyone will have to pay more into their pensions and to work longer? Has my right hon. Friend had any shadow of a scintilla of a suggestion from the shadow Chancellor that if Labour were elected, it would treat either public sector pensions or public sector pay in any way differently from the present Government?
