Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: There is overwhelming evidence that war crimes are being committed in Yemen by Saudi Arabian forces—a state that flouts every human rights norm at home and abroad. Its Government believes that it can kill with impunity journalists or civil rights campaigners, Yemenis or Bahrainis. It funds extremism around the world, but the UK has supplied it with over £4.5 billion-worth of deadly...

European Council (24 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Mr Speaker, I understand that it is 10 years this week since you assumed the Chair of the House. May I just say congratulations on the first 10 years and thank you for being such a popular Speaker and for taking the role of Parliament out to the public in a meaningful way, particularly to schools and colleges all over the country? That has made a big difference. I thank the Prime Minister for...

European Council (24 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: And we support it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Today does mark two years since the terrorist attack on Muslim people in Finsbury Park outside the mosque, and the murder of my constituent Makram Ali. With the far right on the rise both in our country and across the world, we can all send a message to all those who seek to sow hatred and division in our society that we will not be divided. Our diversity is our strength, and I believe it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Obviously, the inquiry must go on and we await its response to what actually happened at Grenfell, but the answer that the Prime Minister gave is of no comfort to the 60,000 people living in high-rise tower blocks across the country. They are worried—their communities are worried. Although Government funding is, of course, necessary and welcome, but not yet available, more than 70 block...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The question was: will the Prime Minister ensure that this is done by the end of this year? Under the current rate of progress, it will take three years for even the social housing blocks to be done. But the issue goes wider: 1,700 other buildings, including hospitals, care homes, schools and hotels, are clad in other potentially combustible materials. If landlords will not act, will the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The coroner’s report made it very clear that she thought that sprinklers would make blocks safer; I do not think we should be playing around with semantics—we should be making sure that all the blocks are safe across the whole country. Only 105 of the 673 new- build schools have sprinklers. Labour would make sure that all new schools had sprinklers fitted. Grenfell survivors say, “We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: That is all well and good, but just how long does it take to amend the Freedom of Information Act to make sure it applies to social housing run by housing associations as well as local authorities? The Government spent £1,013 million on fire services in 2016-17. This year, the figure is £858 million— £155 million cut from fire services. Every fire authority across the country, from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The legacy of this Tory Government is 10,000 firefighter jobs cut since 2010 and 40 fire stations closed, including 10 in London under the previous Mayor. The Prime Minister claimed that action on Grenfell would be part of her legacy, but in two long years, too little has changed. She has met the Grenfell survivors, as have I. Their pain is real and palpable, and it continues. A big test for...

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Today would have been the 90th birthday of Anne Frank had she survived, but she died in the Nazi Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945. In her diary, she wrote many things, but one that really applies to all of us at all times is: “Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness.” We should remember her life and all that she has inspired in so many others...

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The answer the Prime Minister gave has a sort of unreality about it all really. [Interruption.] Let me explain, as I am trying to help Conservative Members. If they could contain their excitement for a moment, I thought I would remind them that the labour force survey shows that compared with 2016, when BEIS was set up, there are now 147,000 fewer people working in manufacturing in Britain,...

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Last week, Ford announced it would end production at its Bridgend plant. UK car production has been virtually halved in the last 11 consecutive months. Ford has also said that a no-deal Brexit would put a further 6,000 UK jobs at risk, with thousands more at risk in the supply chain. Nissan, Toyota, BMW and JLR have all made similar statements. Will the Prime Minister take this opportunity to...

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister may not have noticed, but her deal was rejected three times by Parliament. Another industry failed by the UK Government is UK steel. Why did the Government not agree a deal to support our steel industry?

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Since the Government did nothing to protect the steel industry in Redcar, I hope that they will do a bit better in Scunthorpe, where 5,000 jobs are at risk. The Select Committee on Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy raises questions about whether the Government actually entered into the negotiations in good faith. Another sector that has been failed by the Government is the renewables...

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The legacy of the Prime Minister’s Government is one of failure. They claimed that they would tackle burning injustices; they failed. They told pensioners that their benefits were safe; now, they are taking away free TV licences for the over-75s. They promised action on Grenfell; two years on, there is still flammable cladding on thousands of homes across this country. They promised a...

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: They promised net zero by 2050, yet they have failed on renewables and are missing their climate change targets. They promised an industrial strategy; output is falling. Which does the Prime Minister see as the biggest industrial failure of her Government: the car industry, the steel industry, or the renewables industry? Which is it?

Leaving the European Union (22 May 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of the statement. In fact, I received it yesterday when she made an appeal entitled, “Seeking common ground in Parliament”. Where did she make that appeal? Not in Parliament, but in a small room just down the road. It is now clear: the bold new deal that the Prime Minister promised is little more than a repackaged version of her three times...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in commemorating all the victims of the Manchester bombing two years ago. Our thoughts are with the friends and families of all those who were killed, the survivors, and the emergency service workers who gave such heroic service that night. They will live with the horrors of that night for the rest of their lives and 10.31 tonight will be a very poignant moment for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: That would explain why 26 schools close early on a Friday every week because they do not have enough money to keep themselves open. More than 1,000 schools across England are turning to crowd- funding websites with a wish-list of things they want to raise money to buy—really exotic things such as pencils, glue and textbooks. Why are they forced to do that if they allegedly have enough money...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I do not know if the Prime Minister has had a chance to listen to or read the words of the general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers. He said: “The fact so many schools are doing this should be ringing serious alarm bells for the government”. The Prime Minister does not seem to be aware of the crisis that is facing so many in education at the present time, so can she...
