Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 3 - Offence of human trafficking for sexual exploitation (8 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: The right hon. Gentleman is making a very strong point. Is it not one of the problems that victims of any kind of slavery are inevitably isolated, frightened and often unable even to leave the property, factory or home where they are working? They do not necessarily know where to go and, if the local police are not attuned to the problem, they get no help there. They are then completely stuck...

Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 20 - References to justices of the peace in relation to Northern Ireland (7 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: Would the Minister just think for a moment what it is like to get into a small dinghy and try to cross the channel, and imagine what sense of desperation people must have to risk their own lives to try to get to what they believe to be a place of safety? I am not defending people traffickers or criminal gangs. I am just saying that we have created a situation, in this country and across...

Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 2 - Acquisition by registration: Descendants of those born on British Indian Ocean Territory (7 Dec 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I just want to put on record four things. First, this Bill is an appalling piece of legislation. It is designed to appease the most backward elements in our society and it is designed to chase headlines in the popular media. The attacks on refugees and the attacks on people who support refugees are nothing but appalling and disgusting. The idea that this country has always been a welcoming...

English Channel Small Boats Incident (25 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Home Secretary accept that the only reason that people traffickers and gangs can operate is the absolute desperation of people across Europe and indeed, across the world? Instead of concentrating on more frontiers, more barbed wire, more surveillance and so on—not just in this country, but all across Europe—we should be looking at the causes of asylum in the first place: the...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 62 - Pharmaceutical services: remuneration in respect of vaccines etc (23 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I strongly support the new clause. Does the hon. Gentleman also recognise that there can be delays in obtaining GP appointments in the first place, and someone who feels that they may be suffering from some form of cancer often loses several days—if not, on some sad occasions, weeks— before they get into the NHS system for treatment?

Palestine: Road Map to Peace (17 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I will do my best to set out the case in two and a half minutes. I thank the hon. Member for Birmingham, Hall Green (Tahir Ali) for initiating the debate. The principal point must be that Britain should give unconditional full recognition to the state of Palestine. It was in the Labour party manifesto and it is something that I believe strongly in. Most countries around the world have no...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (16 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I will be brief because I very much want to hear what the Minister has to say in response. The whole House owes a debt to the hon. Member for Hampstead and Kilburn (Tulip Siddiq) for the way she has pursued this case for so long—I remember having a conversation with her when Nazanin was first taken prisoner. We should all also admire Richard for the way he has campaigned so effectively...

Water Companies: Sewage Discharge — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (15 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Gower (Tonia Antoniazzi) for introducing the debate on the petition signed by 111,000 people—257 from my constituency. There is something disgusting about this: hundreds of thousands of raw sewage discharges knowingly released into our rivers every year. Some are because of storm overflows, but only some of them. Some, to my mind, are quite deliberate...

Cop26 (15 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: New Delhi is now heading into a pollution lockdown because of the emissions affecting the people there. The poorest people in the poorest places all around the world suffer the worst from pollution. Will the Prime Minister tell us what he is seriously going to do to bring China, Russia, Australia and others on board to get rid of their coal production? The answer he gave to the right hon....

Ethiopia, Sudan and Tigray: Humanitarian Situation — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (3 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I beg to move, That this House has considered the humanitarian situation in Ethiopia, Sudan and Tigray. I am delighted to serve with you in the Chair, Ms Bardell. I am very pleased that Members have come to debate the humanitarian situation facing Sudan, Ethiopia and Tigray. The debate could not be better timed for the news that we have had today and in the last few days. I will open with a...

Ethiopia, Sudan and Tigray: Humanitarian Situation — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (3 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention—I was actually going to come on to that point next—and she is absolutely right. The abuse of women and girls by the forces in Tigray has been abominable and appalling. The crime of rape has been used as an act of war, and multiple rapes, sexual slavery and the abuse of women have been the order of the day. It is utterly disgraceful, and I hope...

Ethiopia, Sudan and Tigray: Humanitarian Situation — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (3 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: Yes, I will in a second. I do think that we have to recognise the seriousness of the situation we are in at the present time—that is why Michelle Bachelet has said what she has said—and I want to put that into historical context, once I have given way.

Ethiopia, Sudan and Tigray: Humanitarian Situation — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (3 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Member for his intervention, and he is absolutely right. The reports of Eritrean forces being involved are very disturbing because that clearly internationalises the conflict. Verification is obviously difficult when the Ethiopian occupying forces and the conflict itself make it impossible for independent investigators to get there to understand exactly what is going on. One...

Sustainability and Climate Change (National Curriculum) — [Nusrat Ghani in the Chair] (27 Oct 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham East (Nadia Whittome) on securing this debate. I also congratulate the young people who made sure it happened—Scarlett Westbrook and others who are here today. They invited us to Old Palace Yard yesterday to be photographed alongside banners calling for climate education in our schools. The fact that demand is coming from young people...

COP26: Limiting Global Temperature Rises (21 Oct 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I welcome this debate and congratulate the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas) not only on securing it but on all the work she has done over many years to bring environmental issues to the fore in this House. I also thank my right hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne East (Mr Brown) for drawing attention to the fact that, on May Day 2019, this House became the...

COP26: Limiting Global Temperature Rises (21 Oct 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Lady for her excellent speech. Following that point, at COP26 do we need to get proper funding for technology transfer to the poorest countries in the world, which need such technology to protect their environments? Unfortunately, the signs following covid, where there has not been a proper sharing of vaccines or vaccine knowledge, are not good. We have to internationalise...

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what estimate he has made of the amount of waste material imported from Europe burned on a daily basis by in incinerators in the UK.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Incinerators (18 Oct 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what estimate he has made of the amount of waste material imported from Europe burned in UK incinerators in each of the last five years.
