Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Apr 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The last Labour Government guaranteed free TV licences for the over-75s; this Government appear to be outsourcing that policy to the BBC. I think it should be an item of public policy and not be left to somebody else to administer on behalf of the Government. The last Labour Government lifted 2 million pensioners out of poverty and 2 million children out of absolute poverty, and homelessness...

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Votes) (1 Apr 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. It is disappointing that no solution has won a majority this evening, but I remind the House that the Prime Minister’s unacceptable deal has been overwhelmingly rejected three times. The margin of defeat for one of the options tonight was very narrow indeed, and the Prime Minister’s deal has been rejected by very large majorities on three occasions. If it...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. This is now the third time that the Prime Minister’s deal has been rejected. When it was defeated the first time, she said: “It is clear that the House does not support this deal”.—[Official Report, 15 January 2019; Vol. 652, c. 1125.] Does she now finally accept that the House does not support the deal? She seemed to indicate just now that she will...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Government have run down the clock in an attempt to blackmail MPs at every turn. The Government are in chaos, the country is in chaos, and the responsibility is the Government’s, and the Government’s alone. The Prime Minister pulled the meaningful vote in December because she knew it would fail. Since then, in more than three months, nothing has changed—not one single word in the...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: We in the Labour party are very proud of the Good Friday agreement and the peace achieved in Northern Ireland as a result, and nobody in the Labour party wants to do anything to undermine this great achievement. As the shadow Solicitor General, my hon. Friend the Member for Torfaen (Nick Thomas-Symonds), said, article 184 of the withdrawal agreement commits the Government to negotiate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: This chaotic and incompetent Government have driven our country into chaos. We know the scale of the crisis when the TUC and the CBI are united in writing to the Prime Minister saying: “A Plan B must be found—one that protects workers, the economy and an open Irish border”. My question on Monday went unanswered, so will the Prime Minister now say what is her plan B?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The only problem with the Prime Minister’s answer is that her deal has been twice defeated in this House, in one case by the largest ever majority by which a Government have lost a vote in our recorded parliamentary history. Reports today suggest that a former Conservative Prime Minister is telling Conservative MPs that pursuing a customs union with the EU is the best way to get Brexit over...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister knows perfectly well that our policy is for a customs union to protect jobs and society. She will also know that the TUC and the CBI have called for a customs union as part of a deal. In fact, the letter they wrote to all MPs yesterday said that “a deal that delivers a customs union and strong alignment with the UK and the EU rules is the preferred outcome for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister does not seem to realise that she does not have a deal that has been supported by this House. Our proposals for a customs union give us alignment on workers’ rights, consumer standards and environmental protections; they do not begin with a race to the bottom, which is what she and many of her Front Benchers actually want. Earlier this week, the Business Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: In answer to a straight question to the Prime Minister, she was unable to guarantee what is called dynamic alignment with European standards. She knows full well that Labour’s proposals are to use EU standards as a baseline from which we would improve them, including giving workers full rights at work from day one of their employment, ending zero-hours contracts and many other things. In...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: That sounds awfully like a recipe for regression away from those standards and for damaging workers’ rights. After the two largest defeats in parliamentary history, surely the Prime Minister should be listening to Parliament. She did not answer my question about whether an agreement reached in this House would become the Government’s negotiating position. I think that the House and,...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (25 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I wish to congratulate the House on taking control. The Government’s approach has been an abject failure, and this House must now find a solution. I pay tribute to the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin), my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn) and others who have worked to achieve tonight’s result. The...

European Council (25 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for advance copy of her statement and for the meetings that we have had in recent days. The Government’s approach to Brexit has now become a national embarrassment. After two years of failure and broken promises after broken promises, the Prime Minister finally accepted the inevitable last week, voted to extend article 50 and went to Brussels to negotiate. Last...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I start by sending my condolences to all the families and friends of victims of the terror attack in New Zealand last week. The terrible events in Christchurch should remind us all that there is no place for hate. I pay tribute to the way in which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has responded with such dignity and such compassion to this crisis. I absolutely agree with the comments of the Prime...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am not sure that there was an answer to my question there. I wanted no-deal taken off the table; the House has taken no-deal off the table; it is time the Prime Minister took no-deal off the table. The CBI said: “The extension vote is a welcome dose of common sense…Put in place a new process. Drop red lines…Every MP must show leadership through compromise.” Will the Prime Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The last time the Prime Minister tried her meaningful vote, she only managed 242 votes—slightly up on the previous attempt, but nevertheless a decisive rejection. Our plan received 296 votes—rather considerably more. Her Government are in chaos and she has ignored the House, ignored trade unions, ignored businesses and ignored the concerns of communities all around the country. She told...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: It was not clear at all, other than that the Prime Minister is going to try again with what we will now term MV3. Surely, after two big rejections by the House, she must have noticed that there is not much support for the deal that she negotiated. We learned this morning that the Prime Minister will ask only for a short extension, which directly contradicts what the Minister for the Cabinet...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: To describe the parliamentary process as one of indulgence does not show much respect for the democratic process that sent us here in the first place. The House has twice rejected the Prime Minister’s deal, and she is trying to come back for another attempt on Monday. Further to your ruling on Monday, Mr Speaker, she has to come up with something a bit different from what she has come up...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The job of Parliament is to hold Government to account, but the Prime Minister does not seem to understand that. When she was first defeated, she promised legally binding changes—I have not seen those legally binding changes; all she is doing is running down the clock after a second heavy defeat. Today marks 1,000 days since the referendum, and the Government have led the country and...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. After the last few days of Government chaos and some defeats, all of us now have the opportunity and the responsibility to work together to find a solution to the crisis facing this country, where the Government have so dramatically failed to do so. We have begun to hold meetings with Members across the House to find a consensus and a compromise that meets the...
