London (1 Jul 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: I should have thought that in four years' time the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (Mr. Dicks) will be an unpaid, unemployed employee of a non-existent local authority, if he follows the logic of his own arguments. This is the first time that I have spoken to the House. It seems a million miles away from the constituency that I represent and the problems that the people there face....

London (1 Jul 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: In view of the Minister's comments about Islington borough council, will he now reconsider the penalty clauses which have been imposed on that council for last year's rate decision, which was forced on the council by the needs of and poverty in the borough?

Greater London Council (Money) Bill (11 Jul 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Gentleman's comment on the analogy is that education is a basic right, but the Government refuse to give any grant aid to the Inner London education authority, thereby ignoring the needs of inner London children who suffer greater deprivation than those in almost any other part of this country, and certainly far greater than anything in the hon. Gentleman's constituency.

Greater London Council (Money) Bill (11 Jul 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: I think back to what the hon. Member for Southwark and Bermondsey (Mr. Hughes) was saying in his protestations of support for the GLC. His remarks reminded me of the way that a rope supports a hanging man. His purpose was to start the insidious attack that will be waged on the GLC and ILEA in the coming months. It is part of a continuing newspaper build-up against them. I commend his...

Rate Support Grant (England) (26 Jul 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: During this debate we see the continuation of the argument that the Government have put forward during the past four years— that high rates are the responsibility of profligate local authorities. The reality is that the Government have spent the past four years penalising local authorities, taking money away from them, making their job harder, leaving them with the problems created by the...

Grenada (24 Oct 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is the Foreign Secretary making representations to the United States Government to withdraw their fleet, which is anchored off Grenada? Its presence can only exacerbate the situation and be a prelude to a possible landing on Grenada by American forces?

Grenada (Invasion) (26 Oct 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: The performance that the Government have given us today can hardly be described as the pursuit of arrogant power. It has been a pathetic and demeaning example of what they are incapable of saying to the United States. The United States has demonstrated that it believes that the Caribbean is its own basin. It believes that it can do what it wishes in the Caribbean, and the Government told the...

Grenada (Invasion) (26 Oct 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am not giving way. The hon. Gentleman will have a chance to speak. The Government led by Mr. Eric Gairy were by any standards a corrupt and inefficient Government. They were a poodle of Western and American policies. That Government were never condemned by Conservative Members and even now they are not condemned by Conservative Members. Somehow, the theory was built up that it was some...

Cyprus (Turkish Community) (15 Nov 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Foreign Secretary assure the House that there is no question of the Government recognising the new regime in the northern part of Cyprus? When the right hon. and learned Gentleman communicates with the Government of Turkey, will he deplore their support for the UDI? Will he also consider whether it is appropriate for the British Government to have any relationship with the repressive...

Commonwealth Heads of Government (Meeting) (1 Dec 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: What was the reaction of other Commonwealth Heads of Government to the continued cut in British aid to Grenada between 1979 and 1983 and the decision to increase aid to that country following the American invasion? Does she agree that it is the business of the people of Grenada to decide their future, and when and if they should hold elections rather than President Reagan and herself?

Business of the House (22 Dec 1983)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Leader of the House consider during the recess the serious situation in Grenada and make time available in the new year for a debate? About 37 people are being held in Richmond Hill prison, and many of them are denied access to lawyers. American and Caribbean military police are touring the island and are regularly picking up members of the former New Jewel Movement Government. Does...

Local Government (23 Jan 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the rates paid to ILEA by Lewisham are less than ILEA expenditure in Lewisham, which makes Lewisham a net recipient of help from the remainder of London?

Local Government (23 Jan 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have the honour to represent part of the borough of Islington. There can seldom have been a local authority that has been more maligned and vilified by Ministers and their friends in the press than Islington since the 1982 elections. It is strange that they should mount such an attack against a democratically-elected council, when that council's efforts are directed to carrying out the...

Local Government (23 Jan 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am happy to tell the House about that. The hon. Gentleman is not giving a factual account of what he believed may or may not have happened. A delegation from Islington, Haringey and Sheffield, including myself, recently visited Grenada, but not one penny of that visit was paid for by the ratepayers of Islington.
