Debate on the Address: Foreign Affairs and Defence (18 Jul 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I congratulate the hon. Member on a powerful speech. I agree with her call for an immediate ceasefire. Does she believe that we should also halt arms supplies to Israel, which are being used to bomb Gaza and make us and the United States complicit in the killing of so many people in Gaza?

Debate on the Address: Foreign Affairs and Defence (18 Jul 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I congratulate the Secretary of State on the appointment he has received; I know it is a position he has sought, and I wish him well. The conflict that is going on and the bombing in Gaza have already resulted in 40,000 deaths. Are the Government serious in pushing Israel to take part in an immediate ceasefire? Are they also prepared to suspend or stop all arms sales to Israel in order to...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (17 Jul 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is a great pleasure to be able to take part in this debate. I congratulate the new Members on their maiden speeches. I put on record my deep thanks to all the people of the Islington North constituency for voting for me in the election to be an independent MP. Fighting as an independent was an interesting experience after fighting 10 elections as a Labour candidate. It is a very different...

Business of the House (23 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I take this opportunity to wish you well for the future, Madam Deputy Speaker. May I raise with the Leader of the House the issue of the global ocean treaty? The papers to ensure ratification of that treaty, which would bring about the protection of 30% of the world’s oceans by 2030, were laid before Parliament a year ago. The treaty is supported by all parties in the House, obviously...

NHS (23 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does it not concern the Secretary of State that we are spending a great deal of money because of the private sector, which is an undermining factor in the NHS? The NHS paid £11 million to the private health sector in 2022, and many hospitals are spending 15% of their budgets on private finance initiative contracts. Does she not think that we could save an awful lot of money by concentrating...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: State Retirement Pensions: Women (23 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman's report into women’s State Pension age changes, published on 21 March 2024, if he will hold discussions with the Leader of the House on enabling Members to vote on the Government's financial redress proposals before 23 July 2024.

Disabled People on Benefits: EHRC Investigation (23 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am indebted to the hon. Member for Motherwell and Wishaw (Marion Fellows) for obtaining today’s urgent question, and she is correct to say that policy should be based on fairness, dignity and respect. In dealing with cases, I find that those with mental health conditions, including sporadic mental health conditions, are often unfairly sanctioned, go through much deeper stress and...

Israel and Gaza (20 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: Could the Deputy Foreign Secretary tell us in specific terms what military flights are taking off from Akrotiri to Israel? Are the Israel Defence Forces using Akrotiri? Are the US forces using Akrotiri? What is the nature of the overflying of Gaza by the RAF? Is surveillance information being sent to the IDF in response to that? In short, what is the military relationship between Britain and...

Women’s State Pension Age: Ombudsman Report (16 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: This has been a timely and very powerful debate. We have heard some incredible contributions from many Members, who have shared first-hand knowledge of their constituents and the way they have been treated. I was very moved by what was said by the hon. Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) about the couple in his constituency who have basically lost everything because of this whole sorry...

Women’s State Pension Age: Ombudsman Report (16 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have read the evidence given to the right hon. Member’s Committee, which was taken in April this year. If the Government agreed that they had to accept responsibility for this issue and to go forward with it, how quickly could we start to see the highly justified compensation being paid to these women?

Prevention of Sexual Violence in Conflict — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (14 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am pleased that the hon. Lady mentioned that issue. The reality is that 7 million people in the Congo have been displaced. The world’s media barely recognise that—it barely registers on their scale—but it is probably the greatest abuse of human rights anywhere in the world at present.

Prevention of Sexual Violence in Conflict — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (14 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am pleased that we are having this debate. I congratulate the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) on securing it, and on the way she introduced it by talking about the horrors of violence against women on 7 October in Israel, and the violence against women and children going on in the continuing conflict in Gaza and in other parts of the world. As the hon. Member...

Recognition of Western Sahara as Moroccan — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Member will be aware, I am sure, that the African Union has always taken the position that Western Sahara is an issue of decolonisation, and it was on that basis that Morocco left the African Union.

Recognition of Western Sahara as Moroccan — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski) for securing the debate. We should also put on the record our thanks to the Library for a very good briefing on the situation of the Western Sahara. I listened carefully to what the hon. Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham had to say. It is unfortunate that the first 21 minutes of his speech were taken up by talking about...

Recognition of Western Sahara as Moroccan — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: What I am saying is that international law should come first, so the decision by Donald Trump, when he was President of the United States, to recognise Moroccan occupation, which few other countries have done, is a backward step for international law. It will obviously make a lot of people—particularly Sahrawi people—extremely angry, because they see in it no right of representation for...

Recognition of Western Sahara as Moroccan — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have listened to the hon. Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham speak on many occasions in the Chagos islands (British Indian Ocean Territory) all-party parliamentary group about the need for the Chagossian people to have a right to decide their own future. That issue is not for debate today but, in law, the Chagos islands are part of Mauritius that is decolonisation law that has been enacted....

Recognition of Western Sahara as Moroccan — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Member has obviously done detailed research; did he have a chance to meet the Polisario, and has he visited the refugee camps in Algeria?

Immigration Update ( 1 May 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: When the Minister gave a statement to the House, he said that the Government had extended the hand of friendship to those fleeing persecution and oppression. Is he aware that a considerable number of people who are in Calais, or who have crossed the channel and tried to get to this country, are victims of human rights abuse, environmental disaster and wars, some of which this country has been...
