Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I, too, pay tribute to Nelson Mandela on the centenary of his birth. The people of South Africa stood up against the most vile injustice of apartheid. Their solidarity and the solidarity of people around the world freed him and ended the scourge of apartheid. We should pay tribute to all of them on this day. People are losing trust in this Government. The Transport Secretary, the...

Jeremy Corbyn: rose—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I stated the fact that the Electoral Commission has made that reference. That is what I said. I asked the Prime Minister for a guarantee that her Ministers will co-operate with the police on any investigations that they may make. That is not judgmental—it is a guarantee they will co-operate. These are serious issues. Current Cabinet Ministers were indeed central...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: That is all very interesting, but could the Prime Minister explain why the Defence Minister had to rebel against the Government in order to support the Cabinet’s position of a few days before? The Government are in complete chaos. The centrepiece of the White Paper was something called the “facilitated customs arrangement”. Having spent a week trying to convince their own...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Prime Minister seriously expect 27 member states of the EU to establish their own bureaucratic tariff-collection infrastructure just to satisfy the war within the Conservative party in Britain? On Monday evening, the new Brexit Secretary was starting the next round of Brexit negotiations. No wonder he didn’t turn up—he doesn’t know what he is supposed to be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: We are 11 days on from the so-called Chequers agreement, and the Brexit White Paper did not even survive contact with the Cabinet or the Tory Back Benches, and has not yet even been discussed with the EU. The White Paper states: “The UK is committed to membership of the European Convention on Human Rights”. Is the new Brexit Secretary signed up to that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister obviously forgot the question that I just asked her, which was about the Brexit Secretary’s support or otherwise for the European convention on human rights. He is on record as saying: “I don’t support the Human Rights Act and I don’t believe in economic and social rights”. He is obviously backsliding to keep his job, or that is the new policy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Is it not the case that the Government are failing to negotiate Brexit and failing to meet the needs of the country because they are too busy—far too busy—fighting each other?

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of the statement. At the heart of any military alliance is the aim that rogue players cannot derail established Governments. I wonder whether the Prime Minister has reflected on that as she deals with the present threat from the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg). Protecting the British people will always be our first priority....

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for advance copy of her statement, and share her condolences to the friends and family of Dawn Sturgess. We are more than two years on from the referendum: two years of soundbites, indecision and Cabinet infighting, culminating in a series of wasted opportunities, with more and more people losing faith that this Government are capable of delivering a good Brexit...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I share the Prime Minister’s tribute to Private Reece Miller, who died while serving in the 1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment. Our thoughts are with this family and friends and, of course, with the entire regiment. I spent the weekend congratulating the NHS on its 70th birthday in Nye Bevan’s birthplace. The message from the crowd there was: “The NHS is great; let’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: In case the Prime Minister has forgotten, my question was about buses. Since 2010, her Government have cut 46% from bus budgets in England and passenger numbers have fallen, and, among the elderly and disabled, they have fallen by 10%. Her Government belatedly committed to keeping the free bus pass, but a bus pass is not much use if there is not a bus. Does she think it is fair that bus fares...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Under this Government, fares have risen three times faster than people’s pay. Bus users are often people on lower incomes whose wages are lower than they were 10 years ago in real terms and who have suffered a benefits-freeze. Under the stewardship of this Government, 500 bus routes have been cut every year, leaving many people more isolated and lonely and damaging our local...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: When Sadiq Khan ran for Mayor of London, he promised to freeze bus fares, and what has he done? He has frozen bus fares. [Interruption.] If the Prime Minister is concerned about the travelcard fares, she should speak to the Secretary of State for Transport: he is the one who sets that fare. Bus routes are being wiped out: 26 million fewer journeys have been made across the north of England...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: It will be a Labour Government who save the bus industry and who give free fares to under 26-year-olds. The truth is that since deregulation fares have risen faster than inflation, ridership has fallen and these private bus monopolies have made a profit of £3.3 billion since 2010. That is what the Tories give us in public transport. The Government have given Metro Mayors the powers to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is a shame that this Government are so shy of giving powers to local authorities, and are instead more interested in cutting their resources. Bus services are in crisis under this Government. Fares are increasing, routes are being cut and passenger numbers are falling. The situation is isolating elderly and disabled people, damaging communities and high streets, and leading to more...

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of her statement. The statement was nearly 2,000 words, and all the Prime Minister says on Brexit is that we need “clarity about our future relationship”. Yes, we do—we have been waiting for over two years for any clarity from this Government. Let me first address the issue of migration. I hope that the whole House shares my...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Armed Forces Day and Reserves Day. I hope that we also recognise that we need to do far more to address veterans’ housing and health needs. I also pay tribute to the firefighters tackling the blaze on Saddleworth moor. I am sure all our thoughts are with them, and their communities and families, and my hon. Friend the Member for...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I take the Prime Minister’s response as a thumbs-down to the Foreign Secretary. In recent days, an unprecedented number of concerns have been raised by trade unions, business and even some Cabinet Ministers. Today the CBI director general said: “Facts ignored today mean jobs lost tomorrow.” Airbus supports 110,000 jobs in the UK supply chain, many of which are very highly...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Well, the Foreign Secretary did not back it either, but in his own way, he was helping the aviation industry: by spending 14 hours in a plane for a 10-minute meeting in Afghanistan. The Government are not threatening the EU with their ridiculous position; they are threatening skilled jobs in this country. But at least one Government Minister understands this: the Under-Secretary of State for...
