Oral Answers to Questions: Part-time Workers (1 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many part-time workers earn less than £2·50 per hour at 1983–84 prices; what proportion of these are women workers; and what this figure represents as a proportion of women in part-time employment.

Oral Answers to Questions: Part-time Workers (1 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that 90 per cent. of part-time workers in Europe are women, 40 per cent. of whom are British workers? In the light of that fact and the vulnerability of part-time workers, will the hon. Gentleman accept the draft EEC directive, which would provide the same protection and conditions to part-time workers as are given to full-time workers, as is recommended by the...

Orders of the Day — British Nationality (11 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: (seated and covered): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Is it in order for the Minister, in refusing to give way, also to refuse to answer questions on a matter of great public importance?

Orders of the Day — British Nationality (11 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is it not disgraceful that the Minister should have spoken at great length about the Zola Budd case and apparently ignored the plight of many who are waiting nationality applications and, above all, failed to inform the House what discussions, negotiations and correspondence went on with the Daily Mail, its editor and the people in South Africa before Zola Budd arrived here, and to reveal the...

Orders of the Day — British Nationality (11 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Is it in order for the Minister, when describing Zola Budd's application, not to give details of when it was received?

Orders of the Day — British Nationality (11 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does my right hon. Friend not think that the speed with which the paperwork for Zola Budd's case was dealt is quite surprising? Does he not think it possible that the Home Office was in touch with the Daily Mail and with people in South Africa before Zola Budd left South Africa so that this matter could be sorted out well in advance and so that the Daily Mail would get its scoop when she...

Local Government: Finance (No. 2) Bill (10 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: In his most interesting contribution, will my hon. Friend consider the number of bankruptcies under the Conservative Government in relation to their idiotic remarks about unemployment under Labour?

Local Government: Finance (No. 2) Bill (10 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have been following very closely my hon. Friend's arguments about the VAT payments on take-away food. There seems to be a misapprehension in the House that the majority of take-away restaurants are fish and chip shops, whereas in my constituency that is not the case. They are kebab and tandoori take-aways. It is on this point that I should like my hon. Friend to help me. Can he tell me...

New Clause: London Transport Money Act (9 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend the Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Smith) has covered most of the ground that I intended to cover; therefore, I shall be brief. The new clause—which I hope the House will accept —does not fundamentally solve the problem raised by the very bad Bill that is before us, which removes from Londoners some fundamental democratic rights. The new clause will ensure...

New Clause: London Transport Money Act (9 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: As it is always useful to know the sources of these things, will the hon. Gentleman assist us by saying whether someone has assisted him in the preparation of his speech?

New Clause 10: Annual Business Plans (5 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: New clause 10 begins: It shall be the duty of London Regional Transport in each accounting year to prepare …a plan". It is a sad day when right hon. and hon. Members are told that such a new clause is a great advance, when we are doing away with an elected authority which can decide about the future of London Transport—we are able to put pressure op elected members of the GLC with regard...

New Clause 10: Annual Business Plans (5 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I base it on an assessment prepared, it is true, by GLC officers. I am not hiding the fact and I do not seek to hide it in arguments anywhere else. All I am pointing out is the level of service cuts implicit in the Government's taking control of London Transport and in the reduction of its grant from the level at which the GLC wished to pay it, which allowed for expansion of services, to what...

New Clause 10: Annual Business Plans (5 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: That is what we object to.

New Clause 10: Annual Business Plans (5 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: It occurs to me that higher fares would mean higher costs for businesses within London which use the transport system. It also occurs to me that if a system is being run on business lines, the motive that is driving it along is profit rather than efficiency in the provision of a service for all the people in London. The hon. Gentleman is not addressing himself to how many services will be...

New Clause 10: Annual Business Plans (5 Apr 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I can understand the hon. Gentleman's dislike of anyone having to pay higher rates in London. To be fair to the GLC and others he should perhaps give the Government some credit for increasing rates in London by taking £500 million away from London's local authorities in rate support and block grant. It would be much fairer if he approached the matter in an even-handed way.
