Improving our Public Finances and Cutting Taxes


We must get serious about our public finances; the United Kingdom has lived beyond its means for far too long. The Government’s response to our economic circumstances has shown that it is willing to make unpopular decisions in order to bring our public finances under control. The Government Actuary’s Department has stated that the UK risks defaulting on its age-related spending commitments in just twenty years. This is a deeply troubling situation and one that requires great fiscal restraint as […]

Project Gigabit – Multi-Million Pound Deal for Super-Fast Broadband in Wycombe


I’m pleased to be able to share some good news that’s set to make a big difference in Wycombe and our neighbouring areas. We’ve secured a £58.75 million deal with CityFibre to bring super-fast broadband to many homes and businesses in our community. This move is a game changer, especially for areas that have been waiting for better internet service. This project is part of a larger effort to ensure that everyone, no matter where they live, can access fast […]

“What has Steve Baker ever done for Wycombe?”


It has been an honour to work for Wycombe since I was first elected in 2010 as its MP. Whether it is running around West Wycombe, seeing a performance at the Wycombe Swan Theatre, exploring our beautiful countryside, or enjoying the culinary delights that our diverse community brings, it has been a pleasure to live in Wycombe with my wife all these years. Given I have had a large national profile over the past decade, the work I have done […]

Update from Westminster – Restoring the Executive in Northern Ireland


Last week, the Government reached an agreement to restore the Executive in Northern Ireland. I am proud to have been a part of the work which went into the agreement, and I am in no doubt that effective devolved government is the surest way to safeguard the Union and deliver for the people of Northern Ireland. Last week also marked the 4th anniversary of Brexit, which afforded the British people opportunities to cut burdensome red tape, build new trading relationships […]

The Government is acting to tackle Islamophobia


I know the great pain that many are feeling locally for the terrible suffering of innocent people in Gaza. Alongside this pain, I know many are fearful about the conflict spilling over into hatred at home.  All crimes on the basis of religion or other identity are abhorrent and totally unacceptable. I know the conflict has brought a new wave of fears to Muslim communities in the UK. Hate crimes against Muslims are significant, and more needs to be done.  […]

My replies to correspondence on Gaza


I know the anguish that so many in Wycombe and across the UK are feeling at this time. Given the volume and scope of correspondence I have received from constituents on this issue, I am sorry it is not possible for me to respond to every point raised in every email.  The loss of innocent lives in Gaza is a terrible tragedy. There is never justification for the brutal targeting of civilians on any side.  Innocent life is equally valuable everywhere […]
