Migrant Crossings: Role of the Military (18 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: In all the awful answers the Minister has given, he has not shown one iota of empathy for desperate people putting their own lives at risk to try to get to a place of safety, many of them coming from war zones around the world that Britain has been involved in. Can he not show some humanity and sympathy to these people and come to a European-wide agreement on support for asylum seekers and...

Ukraine (17 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: When the Minister meets his Russian counterpart in a few weeks’ time, will he use that opportunity to widen the debate into nuclear disarmament and security measures in general, to build up a dialogue with Russia so that we can deal with all the issues and also de-escalate the dangerous tensions, which are rising? Will he assure the House that no British troops are going to be sent to or...

Bahraini Political Prisoners (13 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: The point is about engagement. Will the Minister assure us that he will pressurise the Bahrain Government to engage with the United Nations human rights organisations and allow them to have independent visits and monitoring, as well as allowing unfettered access for human rights groups such as Amnesty International?

Bahraini Political Prisoners (13 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is not one of the main concerns that people are convicted in Bahrain with no access to independent legal representation or legal accompaniment and claim to have been subjected to torture before confessing to crimes and were therefore imprisoned after that? As I pointed out in my speech, that would be totally illegal within the concepts of international law anywhere else in the world.

Bahraini Political Prisoners (13 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I put on record my thanks to the hon. Member for Argyll and Bute (Brendan O’Hara) for securing today’s debate, for visiting the hunger strike outside the Bahraini embassy and for his support for Hassan Mushaima and his plight in prison in Bahrain. I also went along to support that strike, and as a result I received a letter—a quite substantial letter—from the Bahraini embassy on 24...

Building Safety (10 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: When the horror of Grenfell happened, many local authorities such as mine responded immediately by inspecting all buildings and taking action as appropriate, as they should have done. The private sector did not do that for many of our leasehold properties. I had a very sad conversation with a group of leaseholders a month ago. They are completely stuck. They cannot sell or move, they have...

Covid-19: Government Support for Business (16 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is pretty obvious that during this crisis many workers have lost a lot of income, wages have gone down and living standards have gone down. For those who have to self-isolate or are sick and have to rely on statutory sick pay, SSP is wholly inadequate. Will he, in his consideration of business support, include an immediate substantial increase in SSP so that living standards can at least...

Transport: Topical Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Secretary of State assure the House that when he meets and gets into discussions with Transport for London, hopefully today or tomorrow, he will take into consideration the effects of rising fares, reduced services and possible closure of lines on the environment, job opportunities and air quality for the people of London? Will he also consider the effects on the mobility of young...

Asylum Seeker Accommodation: RAF Manston (15 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: The people who are going to be taken into this facility are desperate people arriving from Afghanistan, Kurdistan and many other places, and suffering from the most intense trauma. Everything that the Minister has said, and everything that the right hon. Member for North Thanet (Sir Roger Gale) asked, sounds awfully like a repeat of the appalling behaviour of the Home Office over Napier...

Public Health (14 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: My Friend’s excellent work as a trade union leader in the NHS is well understood. She is speaking on behalf of NHS workers; has she any idea how many will be affected by this totally wrong attempt to force vaccinations and passports on people?

Metropolitan Police: Stephen Port Murders Inquest (13 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: Something as appalling as this deserves more than to be tacked on to an existing inquiry. It surely requires a public inquiry, as other colleagues have called for, to look at the totality and horror of this event. The Minister mentioned the idea of specialist officers within the force. I understand the need for them and can see some value in the idea, but is there not a greater problem in the...

Rail Investment and Integrated Rail Plan (8 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: Railways are the most essential form of transport, and they are the greenest and cleanest form of transport available, so their development is absolutely essential. We have to reflect, however, that since privatisation in the 1990s, fares have gone up astronomically, there has been massive profit-taking from the railway systems, and fare-paying passengers are paying the price. We should take...

Rail Investment and Integrated Rail Plan (8 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: No, I will not give way. Those colleagues are demanding proper, rational investment to ensure that their towns and cities are properly served by the railway system across this country. I absolutely support them in doing that. There has to be an integrated transport system in this country. Therefore, the underfunding of Transport for the North and the failure of the Government to recognise the...

Rail Investment and Integrated Rail Plan (8 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: Just so that the hon. Member is aware of it, I am not giving way. I would urge the Government to make sure that in their plans for reopening disused lines—[Interruption.]

Rail Investment and Integrated Rail Plan (8 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I would urge the Government in planning any reopenings, which generally I would support, to do a serious cost-benefit analysis and look at the potential of the line. In most cases, there has been a gross underestimation of the benefits that reopening brings. For example, the Edinburgh to Galashiels line, which is doing very well, should be opened right the way through to Carlisle. The last...

Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 3 - Offence of human trafficking for sexual exploitation (8 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for that explanation. Clearly his amendment is better than no amendment, but I would want us to go a lot further, because if we do not give support to people who are complete victims, they will suffer in the most abominable circumstances. I therefore hope that the Bill can be strengthened. This Bill is an appalling piece of legislation. It does not bring...
