Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: This week does indeed mark six months since the avoidable and tragic fire at Grenfell Tower that took the lives of 71 people and injured and traumatised many more. I, too, will be at the service in memory of them tomorrow. That fire also shone a light on the neglect of working-class communities all over this country. Since the Government came to power, homelessness is up by 50% and rough...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The last Labour Government cut homelessness by two thirds during their time in office, and when Labour left office, the number of children in temporary accommodation was a lot lower than it is now. I asked the Prime Minister for a pledge to reduce the amount of homelessness next year; that pledge was not forthcoming. One hundred and twenty-eight thousand children will spend Christmas without...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The sad reality is that one in every 100 children in this country are homeless at any one time. That is a national disgrace, and it is getting worse. For all the Prime Minister says about the private rented sector, I shall quote from a letter I received this week from Rachael, who says: “I have a knot in my stomach every New Year period when we are due to sign a new tenancy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: Evictions by private landlords have quadrupled since 2010. There is no security in the private rented sector, and the Prime Minister well knows it. She also promised one-for-one replacement of council housing sold off through the right to buy, but just one in five council homes have been replaced. Hundreds of thousands of people are on housing waiting lists. Will the Prime Minister apologise...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: If only that were true. Under the Tories, home ownership has fallen by 200,000. Under Labour, it rose by 1 million. Forty per cent. of all homes sold through right to buy are now in the private rented sector. The latest figures show that a quarter of all privately rented homes are not up to decent standards, which means that many families are living in homes with damp, that are not secure and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: I would just remind the Prime Minister that 1 million homes were brought up to the decent homes standard under Labour. I would also assume from what she has said that she will be here on 19 January to support the Bill tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) to make privately rented homes fit for human habitation. When it comes to housing, this Government have...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: I would like to thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of the statement. Eighteen months on from the referendum result, the Prime Minister has scraped through phase 1 of the negotiations after 18 months, two months later than planned, with many of the key aspects of phase 1 still not clear. This weekend, Cabinet members have managed to contradict each other. Some have managed to go even...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in expressing condolences about the police officer and the passenger who lost their lives in the tragic event yesterday. I also join her in paying tribute to the late Jimmy Hood, who represented Clydesdale and, later, Lanark and Hamilton East. He was a good friend of all of us, and he was a great fighter for the coal industry and the mineworkers union during the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister can always look behind her. She has not succeeded in convincing many people. Yesterday, one Tory donor told the papers: “Yesterday proved beyond doubt that” the Prime Minister “is not only weak but that it’s her incompetence that is hobbling the UK.” He was not very kind about the rest of her Front Benchers either, describing them as a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: On the Prime Minister’s way back to Britain, someone forgot to share the details of the Irish border deal with the Democratic Unionist party. Surely there are 1.5 billion reasons why the Prime Minister really should not have forgotten to do that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister was unable to support her Brexit Secretary when he tried to explain that a deal was supposed to have been done in October but still has not been done by December. The leader of the DUP told Irish television that she got sight of the deal only on Monday morning, five weeks after she first asked for it. Two months after the original deadline for the first phase of talks, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: Eighteen months after the referendum, the Prime Minister is unable to answer the question. On Monday, as she thought she was coming here to make a statement, it was vetoed by the leader of the DUP—the tail really is wagging the dog here. The Brexit Secretary told the BBC’s “Andrew Marr Show” in June: “In my job I don’t think out loud and I don’t make...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: This really is a shambles. All the Government have done is offer a heavily redacted, abbreviated version, which has not been widely shared. The Brexit Secretary said in September that a £50 billion divorce payment was “complete nonsense.” The Foreign Secretary rejected any payment and said that the EU could “go whistle.” Can the Prime Minister put before the House...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: Eighteen months since the referendum, there are no answers to the questions. Today, the Government have not yet concluded phase 1, and there are no answers to the questions and the DUP appears to be ruling the roost and telling the Prime Minister what to do. Whether it is Brexit, the national health service, social care, our rip-off railways, rising child poverty, growing pensioner poverty...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The test of a Budget is how it affects the reality of people’s lives all around this country. I would submit that the reality—[Interruption.]

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. The reality test of this Budget has to be how it affects ordinary people’s lives. I believe, as the days go ahead and this Budget unravels, the reality will be that a lot of people will be no better off, and the misery that many are in will be continuing. Pay is now lower than it was in 2010, and wages are now falling again. Economic growth in the first...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The point I was making is that three new pilot schemes for rough sleepers simply does not cut it. It is a disaster for those people sleeping on our streets and forced to beg for the money for a night shelter. They are looking for action now from Government to give them a roof over their heads. In some parts of the country, life expectancy is actually beginning to fall. The last Labour...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: I would rather people stayed to listen, actually, Mr Deputy Speaker, to the reality—[Interruption.]

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. Maybe Government Members would like to listen to Martin’s experience. A full-time worker on the minimum wage, he said: “I get paid four weekly meaning that my pay date is different each month”. Because, under the universal credit system, he was paid twice in a month and deemed to have earned too much, his universal credit was cut off. He says:...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: That is why social care budgets are so important for so many very desperate people in our country. Our schools will be 5% worse off by 2019 despite the Conservative manifesto promising that no school would be worse off. Five thousand head teachers from 25 counties wrote to the Chancellor saying: “we are simply asking for the money that is being taken out of the system to be...
