Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact assessment: trade and diplomatic relations (25 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I compliment the hon. Gentleman on his excellent speech. He has given very good democratic, social and moral reasons for why the Bill is in deep defect. Does he not think a better process would be for the Secretary of State now to withdraw the Bill altogether?

Funding for Parks (24 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am pleased that we had this debate today; it gave us the chance to set out the issues facing us. I understand what the Minister said about the use of parks for mental health recuperation and the generality of people’s needs, and I fully support that. I hope that we will recognise that increasing pressure on local authorities to get an income from parks can be detrimental to the basic...

Funding for Parks (24 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Minister for what he is saying. Does he think that there should be guidance from central Government about the amount of time that a park can be exclusively used for private interests or private commercial interests, in order to protect the generality of public access to what is valuable open space?

Funding for Parks (24 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I beg to move, That this House has considered funding for parks. It is a pleasure to be in the Chamber with you, Mr Pritchard, a fellow Shropshire person and product of the open spaces of Shropshire. I will speak generally about parks and then in more detail about the problems faced by our parks and open spaces. Parks are a major feature of our lives, providing opportunities to recreate, play...

Funding for Parks (24 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Member for his intervention. Stanley park is a wonderful park and a great place. Many other parks around the country are iconic and beautiful and all are at risk because of the danger of local authorities agreeing to a planning rule change that would allow parts of parks to be sold off. It all seems very attractive at the time. Somebody in the council says, “Okay, we will...

Funding for Parks (24 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Member is quite correct. There are numbers of people who are going through a mental health crisis who feel that it is alleviated to some extent by going to a park. I have met people with mental health conditions who are going through group therapy who meet and walk around a park together; they feel that that is a way of coming together in a calm atmosphere. We should never...

Renters (Reform) Bill (23 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: rose—

Renters (Reform) Bill (23 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Secretary of State for giving way. I noted he said that, nationally, around 20% of the population live in the private rented sector. In constituencies such as mine, the figure is 30% to 35%, and many people feel very insecure in their lives. For those on universal credit and housing benefit, the problem is that the local housing allowance does not meet their rent needs. Therefore,...

Israel and Gaza (23 Oct 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: The killings on 7 October were appalling and have to be totally condemned, as everyone has today. However, the loss of 5,000 Palestinian lives in Gaza is continuing and getting worse. The question is: why did the Prime Minister instruct Britain’s representative to the UN not to support the call for a very minimal thing, which is a humanitarian pause to allow aid to go in and a ceasefire to...

Ann Clwyd (19 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is a great pleasure to be able to speak about my friend Ann Clwyd, whom I knew extremely well. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Cynon Valley (Beth Winter) for the wonderful way she has put her memories on the record today. I first knew Ann when she was elected to Parliament along with me in the early ’80s. We shared an office in the Cloisters downstairs, along with about 25 other...

High Speed 2 (18 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is this not an example of a very bad national planning process? HS2 does not link up with HS1; all the pain and disruption around Euston will have been for naught; and if it is completed as far as Birmingham, all it will do is join an already overcrowded rail network. Surely we have either a high-speed network or nothing at all. The Minister seems unable to answer any questions at all.

At-risk Academics: UK Support (12 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Minister for the remarks she has just made, but would it be possible for the Government to put more direct pressure on Governments such as that of Azerbaijan about the treatment of academics, as well as about the individual cases that have been raised today?

At-risk Academics: UK Support (12 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: The right hon. Gentleman and I are well aware of the situation of Dr Gubad Ibadoghlu in Azerbaijan. He is a distinguished academic, proud of academic independence and the objectivity of his work and studies. He will not be intimidated by anybody regarding what he writes or how he writes it. He is in a difficult situation at the moment, and I would be grateful if the Minister could assure us...

Backbench Business: UK’s Relationship with Mexico — [James Gray in the Chair] ( 7 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: On the question of human rights, I assume from what the Minister said that the continuing trade discussions with Mexico will include a human rights dialogue. Will he also give a commitment that the Government will remain supportive of the family of Claudia Uruchurtu and their needs in her case, not just for her but as an example of our willingness to support people who are trying to bring...

Backbench Business: UK’s Relationship with Mexico — [James Gray in the Chair] ( 7 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend will be aware that the huge Tren Maya project that the Government of Mexico have been pursuing to build a 15,000 km railway line across the southern part of Mexico will be joined by some British Railways rolling stock in the near future. It is being shipped from Great Yarmouth as we speak to help make up the rolling stock needs of the new railway, so there is an improvement....

Backbench Business: UK’s Relationship with Mexico — [James Gray in the Chair] ( 7 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am delighted that we are having this debate on Mexico. I did not realise that it is the first one since 1938; I was not here at the time—I have been at all the subsequent ones. We have had many debates on Latin America, and obviously Mexico has been raised on a number of occasions. One should reflect, though, that in 1938 Mexico was going through a massive social revolution under the...

Backbench Business: UK’s Relationship with Mexico — [James Gray in the Chair] ( 7 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention and I endorse absolutely everything that he said. I hope that when the Minister comes to reply, he will acknowledge the severity and seriousness of this case, and will say that the Foreign Office will remain seized of it and will continue supporting any investigations to bring about justice. That will not bring Claudia’s life back, sadly, but the...

Backbench Business: UK’s Relationship with Mexico — [James Gray in the Chair] ( 7 Sep 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I acknowledge that the Minister is nodding. There are many, many cases that one could talk about. The one other case that I will mention is that of Miguel Orlando Muñoz Guzmán, an infantry lieutenant in the army who has been missing since 1993. He was last seen in Ciudad Juárez in Chihuahua, and he could have been threatened with the danger of going missing. He has been searched for all...

Defence Command Paper Refresh (18 Jul 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Secretary of State is a thoughtful man, and today he has announced that we are going to be spending £50 billion on defence, at a time when every other Government Department is under financial pressure. He has also said that he predicts that this country will be at war within seven years. Does he have any idea or process to bring about more peace and rapprochement in the world, and less...
