Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Ministers are no nearer to agreeing a White Paper than they are a strategy for going forward. I remind the Prime Minister that UK has the slowest economic growth of all major economies, and its growth overall is slower than that of the eurozone. The Government’s uncertainty and recklessness are putting jobs and investment at risk. Last week, Airbus confirmed that its space contract would...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The problem is that the Prime Minister’s own position is not even supported by her Cabinet. Rolls-Royce has said: “We’re worried about border checks…we need to be thoughtful and careful about” future investments. Ford has said: “any sort of border restrictions or customs friction is going to be an inhibitor to us continuing”. Vauxhall says: “We cannot invest in a world of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: May I congratulate the Prime Minister on record numbers of zero-hours contracts, record numbers of people in in-work poverty, and a record of wages lower today than 10 years ago? May I also congratulate her on formally dividing her Cabinet into rival camps—as if it needed doing—to consider two different models? As a process of parliamentary scrutiny, I hope that both Sub-Committees will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. It is a very straightforward question. How many additional HMRC staff have been recruited to deal with Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The question that I asked the Prime Minister was, “How many more HMRC officials have been recruited?” She has not answered it. Let me help her, and say that if more are being recruited, as is being claimed, they will not even make up for the cuts made in the last eight years. It seems that the Dutch Government are more prepared for dealing with Brexit than the British Government. We have...

Petition - Natwest Ferryhill: Arsène Wenger (15 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way and congratulate him on securing this debate. As the MP who represents the Arsenal stadium—the old and the new—I have been through the pain and the pleasure of the building of the new stadium. Throughout the whole time that Arsène Wenger has been manager, he has ensured that Arsenal has made an enormous contribution to the local community....

Tributes: Baroness Jowell (14 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker, and thank you for arranging this half hour of tributes to Tessa Jowell. We are grateful to you for that, and we are grateful to the Prime Minister for what she has just said about Tessa. Right across the House, people were devastated when they heard the news of Tessa’s death. Like the Prime Minister, I send my condolences to her family and friends and to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: First, may I put on record my thanks to Mr Speaker for attending the funeral of the late Michael Martin this morning in Glasgow on behalf of this House? Does the Prime Minister agree with her Foreign Secretary that the plan for a customs partnership set out in her Lancaster House speech is, in fact, “crazy”?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Could the Prime Minister explain why she and her Cabinet wasted weeks working up proposals that the EU said were unworkable and that the Foreign Secretary described as “crazy”? Does she agree with her Business Secretary who apparently backs the “crazy” customs partnership proposal, but who made it clear that he did not back a technological alternative when he told the BBC that jobs...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Government say that they have two options. The Foreign Secretary says that one is “crazy”, and Sir Ivan Rogers, our former EU ambassador, said that the technological alternative is a “fantasy island unicorn model”. They have two options, neither of which is workable. The case for a new customs union with the European Union is clear, to support jobs and living standards. Why is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister presides over a divided Cabinet. She has had 23 months to negotiate an agreement and has not made any progress on it. The CBI says that “a comprehensive customs union, after transition, is a practical, real-world answer”. The TUC, on behalf of 6 million workers in this country, puts it simply: “Ruling out a customs union risks jobs”. The Government continue to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Due to divisions within the Government, these negotiations are a shambles, and this House is being denied the opportunity to debate crucial legislation affecting the future of our economy and communities all over Britain. Can the Prime Minister now tell the House when we will debate the trade Bill and when we will debate the customs Bill? She has had 23 months to get ready for it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I would have thought that after 23 months, we would have a better answer than that from the Prime Minister. How can the Government negotiate in the future interests of people’s jobs and living standards when Cabinet members are more interested in putting their own futures first? Fundamentally, how can this Government negotiate a good deal for Britain to defend people’s jobs and living...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Michael Martin, the former Labour MP for Glasgow, Springburn and later Speaker of the House. He worked in the engineering industry in Glasgow and was active in the then Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers. He and I first met when we were fellow organisers in the National Union of Public Employees in the 1970s, campaigning for decent public...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: This was a crisis made in the Home Office by successive Home Secretaries. Only a week ago today, the right hon. Member for Hastings and Rye (Amber Rudd), then Home Secretary, was denying there were any targets, in front of the Home Affairs Committee. On Monday, the Prime Minister told the media: “When I was Home Secretary, yes, there were targets”. One wonders why the Prime Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Four facts about the economy: more people in debt, more people using food banks, more people sleeping on our streets, and more children in poverty. The consequences of decisions made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer are that the NHS is suffering the longest funding squeeze in history. It has sent our health service into an all-year-round crisis. Will the Prime Minister apologise to NHS...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Not only was March the worst month on record in A&E departments; it was also the worst month for cancelled operations. There are 100,000 vacancies for NHS staff—and the Prime Minister personally intervened to overrule the Health Secretary and the previous Home Secretary when they asked for a relaxation of visa rules in order to recruit staff to work in our NHS. But it is not just the NHS...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is quite astonishing that the Education Secretary has been corrected by the UK Statistics Authority. The Institute for Fiscal Studies says that schools budgets are being cut, and the Prime Minister still appears to be in denial. It is not just in the NHS and education that this Government are damaging our public services; it is also about police budgets. The previous Home Secretary claimed...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Our shadow Police Minister was pointing out that there has been a £2.3 billion cut in police budgets in the last Parliament, and it is the Prime Minister’s Government who are underfunding our police force: 21,000 police officers have lost their jobs since 2010, and 6,700 police community support officers lost their jobs. Meantime, violent crime is rising and, sadly, there are deaths from...
