The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Mr Speaker, you don’t have to go very far from the portals of this House to see real destitution: people begging and sleeping on the streets; child poverty is up compared with 2010; pensioner poverty is up; and in-work poverty is up. The Prime Minister will not give us any of the information of the assessments of increased poverty that could come from his Government’s proposals. We are...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. If the Prime Minister does to the country what he has done to his party in the past 24 hours, a lot of people have a great deal to fear from his incompetence, his vacillation and his refusal to publish known facts—that are known to him—about the effects of a no-deal Brexit.

Points of Order (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I welcome tonight’s vote. We live in a parliamentary democracy. We do not have a presidency; we have a Prime Minister. Prime Ministers govern with the consent of the House of Commons representing the people in whom sovereignty rests. There is no consent in this House to leave the EU without a deal. There is no majority for no deal in the country....

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I rise to support the motion in the name of the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin). During my time in this House every Prime Minister has accepted that there can be honourable disagreements, and I have had many disagreements with each and every one of them. That has led to many votes in this House, which have not always been entered into with certainty on the outcome or on...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend makes a pertinent point because, in the six weeks or so since the Prime Minister took office, apparently no proposals have been put to the European Union and there have been no substantive negotiations. He keeps talking about the prospect of progress being made. Well, one would have thought he would have something practical to report to the House by this stage, and, so far, he...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: We are ready for a general election, ready to take on this Government and ready to win a general election to end austerity and poverty across this country, but just look at what we face: a Government determined to subvert the democratic process and to force through a policy that a majority of this House do not support and that has been defeated emphatically twice in this House; a Government...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Yes, the Labour Opposition did support the referendum and did take part in the referendum campaign. We also made it very clear at the general election that we would not countenance a no-deal exit from the European Union because of the damage it would do. We cannot hope for another opportunity further down the line to stop this Government’s destructive course. There is no more time—they...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I was with my hon. Friend in Scotland last week, and we heard concerns from many people, particularly those who trade extensively with Europe, about the effect of a no-deal Brexit and the damage it would do to their businesses and the jobs that go with them.

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I think I am right in saying that on two occasions I voted alongside the Prime Minister against those deals. I understand that Members on both sides of the House are under a great deal of pressure in what is, regrettably, an extremely volatile political climate, but if you truly trust in what all the analysis shows—including the Government’s own analysis, as was demonstrated earlier—if...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. The only problem is that it flies in the face of all the facts that are published day in, day out. The value of the pound is falling and manufacturing industry is falling, and I will come on to a number of other industries that are seriously at threat. I pay tribute to those people across all parties who have come together and continued to...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have given way many times to Conservative Members, so I will continue. That is why so many people across this House will stand up to say no to no deal. It has been exposed today, as reported in The Daily Telegraph, that the Prime Minister’s chief of staff called negotiations a “sham” and that the real strategy is to run down the clock. That is why it is incumbent on us, as Members of...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend is right to say that the west midlands will be particularly hard hit, because so much of its industry relies on just-in-time deliveries from the continent, as well as exports to it, and on a manufacturing process that means that, if any interruption whatsoever happens, there is chaos immediately at the point of production, as well as at the transport system that supplies those...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have given way many times to many people, and I am sure the hon. Gentleman will make a wonderful contribution when he gets to make his speech. No deal threatens peace and stability in Northern Ireland, and threatens our policing and counter-terrorism co-operation with Europe. No deal will mean food shortages and medical shortages, and it will bring chaos to our ports and transport networks....

G7 Summit (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of his statement. I join with him in recognising the great human suffering of world war two and the great human bravery that took place during that awful conflict that began 80 years ago, which was essential in defeating the disgusting ideology of the Nazis and of fascism at that time. The Prime Minister met EU leaders over the summer and EU...

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I welcome the right hon. Gentleman to his position and thank him for an advance copy of his statement. No one underestimates this country, but the country is deeply worried that the new Prime Minister overestimates himself. He inherits a country that has been held back by nine years of austerity that hit children and young people the hardest. Their youth centres have closed, their school...

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The right hon. Gentleman’s predecessor promised to end austerity, but spectacularly failed to deliver. People do not trust the Prime Minister to make the right choices for the majority of people in this country when he is also promising tax giveaways to the richest and big business—his own party’s funders. So can he now indicate when he will set out the detail of...

Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The office of Prime Minister requires integrity and honesty, so will the Prime Minister correct his claim that kipper exports from the Isle of Man to the UK are subject to EU regulations? Will he also acknowledge that the £39 billion is now £33 billion, due over 30 years, and has been legally committed to be paid by his predecessor? This is a phoney threat about a fake pot of money, made by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Today marks the final day in office for the Prime Minister, and I pay tribute to her sense of public duty. Public service should always be recognised. Being an MP, a Minister or indeed a Prime Minister is an honour that brings with it huge responsibility and huge pressures personally and, I am sure the Prime Minister and probably the whole House would agree, on those very closest to us, who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Yes, politics is about real life and politics is about what people suffer in their ordinary lives. I did not mention that per-pupil school funding has gone down, police numbers are down and GP numbers are falling. In the 2017 Conservative manifesto, the Prime Minister promised that no school would have its budget cut, that she would protect TV licences for the over-75s and that she would...
