G7 Summit (22 May 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister mentioned the United Nations in the context of his remarks about Ukraine, and he will be aware that the United Nations has quite rightly condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Will he comment on the calls made by Secretary-General Guterres to attempt to negotiate a ceasefire, supported by President Ramaphosa and the Pope? What comment will he make about the statement...

Point of Order (17 May 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. During Prime Minister’s Question Time earlier today, when the right hon. Member for Hertsmere (Oliver Dowden) was responding on behalf of the Government, he made a number of erroneous references to me. I seem to be living rent-free in his head, alongside the Prime Minister. He did not inform me that he would be raising these issues during Prime...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Members: Correspondence (3 May 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, when he plans to respond to the correspondence of 17 February, 21 March and 14 April 2023 from the Rt hon. Member for Islington North on cladding.

Sudan (2 May 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I put on record my thanks to all those who helped so much with the humanitarian evacuation from Sudan, because they have obviously performed the best they could, although there are still issues to be resolved. I hear what the Minister says about a ceasefire, and obviously a ceasefire would be very welcome—the longer the ceasefire, the better—but a ceasefire is not peace, and it is not a...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Chagos Islands: Sovereignty (2 May 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am sure that the Foreign Secretary accepts that the Chagos islanders were disgracefully treated in the 1970s by the British Government of the day, and that they were forcibly removed from the islands that they love so much. They have fought all these years to be able to go back. They have won international law recognition of their case, as the Mauritian Government won international law...

Human Rights Protections: Palestinians (20 Apr 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I completely agree with the remarks made by my Friend the Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell). The loss of Shireen Abu Akleh is deeply felt by Palestinians all over the world. She was the iconic voice of reporting on behalf of al-Jazeera from Palestine, and she was the trusted voice that many Palestinians woke up to every day, to find out what was happening in their land. The...

Asbestos in Workplaces (19 Apr 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: In this analysis, will the Minister include the problem of unmarked dumps around the country, particularly Ministry of Defence dumps, which are highly likely to include large quantities of very dangerous blue asbestos, which is probably the worst type?

Asbestos in Workplaces (19 Apr 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: We owe a great debt to the hon. Member for Loughborough (Jane Hunt) for securing the debate and the way in which she moved the motion. I used to be a union organiser in the public sector before I became a Member of Parliament, in the National Union of Public Employees. In the early ’70s, when the debate started about the health, safety and welfare at work legislation, which was put in law...

Asbestos in Workplaces (19 Apr 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Member raises a very important point. There are a number of unaudited rubbish dumps around the country, including unaudited rubbish dumps from the Ministry of Defence, many of which will contain asbestos remains that are completely unknown. Somebody will come along, perhaps to construct something on that site, and dig it up. As a result, asbestos will be released into the...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (21 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I just want to set out a few points very quickly in this debate. The number of children in food poverty in this country has doubled in the past year to 4 million; the NHS is on its knees; and the richest 1% are taking home more than ever, and own 230 times the wealth of the poorest 10% in our society. Does this Budget do anything to deal with those issues? I think everyone knows the answer to...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (21 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (21 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I missed the first two minutes of the speech, and I apologise. Following on from the point that was raised by the hon. Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Tim Farron), the issue of the private rented sector is devastating in inner-city areas such as mine, where private rents are now going up—the worst I have heard is an 80% increase—because of the end of restrictions on them. Will the...

Metropolitan Police: Casey Review (21 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: Baroness Casey’s report makes it very clear that what campaigners have been saying for years is absolutely true: black Londoners are disproportionately likely to be stopped and searched by the Metropolitan police. It also calls for fundamental change in that whole policy. Will the Home Secretary explain how the Public Order Bill, which gives the police increased powers of stop and search...

Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill: Clause 2 - Animals to which the import prohibition relates (17 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on the work he has done to get the Bill thus far and I hope it goes through today. Perhaps he will join the rest of us in congratulating those many campaigners all around the country who have worked so hard to draw attention to the issue of trophy hunting and ensure that we have such a good attendance here today. That in itself becomes an education to people,...

AUKUS Defence Partnership (14 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: Many in the world are concerned that this agreement undermines, if not breaches, the non-proliferation treaty. Will the Minister assure us that it will be constantly under review and will be reported to the NPT review conference when it comes along? Will he also explain the longer-term implications of this in stoking up a cold war with China? That is likely to increase defence expenditure by...

AUKUS Defence Partnership (14 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: indicated dissent.

Future of the NHS (23 Feb 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the impact of an inadequacy in healthcare provision falls on A&E departments, which take in people who have mental health crises but are ill-equipped to cope with them; on neighbourhoods that cannot cope with people going through crises; or on the police, who have to intervene simply to look after someone for whom there ought to be mental health provision....

Future of the NHS (23 Feb 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Member for Jarrow (Kate Osborne) for initiating a debate that enables us to discuss the real philosophy behind the national health service. When Aneurin Bevan piloted the original NHS legislation through the House, he was inspired by the way in which those in the community of Tredegar supported each other. In many ways, our NHS owes as much to the mining community in south...

Future of the NHS (23 Feb 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I agree that the issue of recruitment is crucial, which means that the issue of training is crucial. However, we have relied for a very long time, and we still do, on many medical professionals coming from other countries, making their homes here and making an incredible contribution to all of our lives. We should thank them, thank the Windrush generation and thank that generation of Irish...

Future of the NHS (23 Feb 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend makes an important point about isolation and mental health, particularly for teenage boys who, sadly, have the highest suicide rates. There has to be a reach-out and an understanding that overcrowding, poverty, bad housing and many other things contribute to mental health stress. It is not just a medical condition.
