Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: After the utter shambles of the last two years of negotiations, the Prime Minister should look to herself in this. She has not managed to convince quite a lot of the Members who are standing behind her. The rail Minister resigned last week, saying: “To present the nation with a choice between two deeply unattractive outcomes, vassalage and chaos, is a failure of British statecraft on a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Under the Prime Minister’s deal, we are going to spend years with less say over our laws or how our money is spent. The International Trade Secretary said last week that the decision to withdraw from any backstop agreement could not be contracted to somebody else. Can the Prime Minister confirm whether under her deal, it will be the sovereign right of the UK Parliament to unilaterally...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I think that that non-answer has confirmed that Parliament will not have that sovereign right. The International Trade Secretary breezily declared that he would have 40 trade deals ready to be signed the second after midnight when we leave the EU. With four months to go, can the Prime Minister tell us exactly how many of those 40 deals have been negotiated?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The International Trade Secretary is not the only one who does not understand international trade rules, and he is not the only one in the Cabinet who does not understand a few things. The Brexit Secretary said last week: “I hadn’t quite understood the…extent of this, but…we are particularly reliant on the Dover-Calais crossing”. When did the Prime Minister become aware of this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Labour respects the result of the referendum. What we do not respect is the shambolic mess the Government have made of negotiations: the mess they created that they cannot now get themselves out of. We will not let them destroy this country’s economy or the jobs and life chances of so many others. If the Brexit Secretary is still in office by the time the Cabinet meets this afternoon, could...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: When a sensible alternative plan could bring together Parliament and the country. Even Conservative MPs say the Prime Minister is offering a choice between the worst of all worlds and a catastrophic series of consequences. When will the Prime Minister recognise that neither of those options is acceptable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in sending our sympathies and solidarity to the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. The attack was disgusting, depraved and appalling, and I am sure that every single Member of this House would completely and unreservedly condemn it for what it is. I will be joining the Prime Minister to commemorate Armistice Day and remember all those who lost their lives in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Just for the record, the words that I quoted in my previous question were from the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Non-protected Departments face a real-terms cut of £4.1 billion. The Prime Minister promised that austerity was over; the reality is that it was a broken-promise Budget, and she knows it. With violent crime rising, police numbers slashed and conviction rates down, why did the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Mr Speaker: “This is just another example of the contempt in which the Government holds police officers.” Who said that? Not me; the Police Federation. No wonder the Police Federation and police chiefs are taking the Government to court over their pay. With school funding cut by 8% per pupil, do the Prime Minister and her Chancellor think that the “little extras” are enough to end...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Mr Speaker: “Many schools, including mine, have had to resort to asking students and their parents for funds.” That is not me, but Sasha, a parent, worried about the future of her school, because this broken-promise Budget means that headteachers will still be writing begging letters to parents. Can the Prime Minister explain why she chose not to end the benefit freeze for 10 million...

Jeremy Corbyn: The benefit freeze takes £1.5 billion—[Interruption.] If the right hon. Gentleman will wait a moment, I will explain my question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The benefit freeze takes £1.5 billion from 10 million low and middle-income households. A low-income couple with children will be £200 worse off. For them, there is no end to austerity. Labour would have ended the benefit freeze. As the Prime Minister well knows, Labour policy is to raise taxes for the top 5% and for the biggest corporations in the country. That would be a fair way of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am really not very clear whether that was a yes or a no. The Prime Minister once claimed to be concerned about “burning injustices”—well, that concern has fizzled out, hasn’t it? This was a broken promise Budget. The Prime Minister pledged to end austerity at her party conference, and the Chancellor failed to deliver it in this House. The cuts continue. Those on lower incomes will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Mr Speaker, I am sure that some Conservative Members will not have heard what I was saying, so I shall repeat it for their benefit. Now we know: councils, schools, police, prisons, public sector workers and people reliant on social security still face years of austerity. Will the Prime Minister apologise for her broken promise that she was going to end austerity, because she has failed to do that?

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The reality is that, whatever the Chancellor claims today, austerity is not over. Far from building a strong economy, eight years of austerity has damaged our economy, delayed and weakened the recovery, and endlessly postponed fixing the deficit. Unnecessary austerity has caused real hardship to millions of our fellow citizens, held down living standards for the majority and failed on its own...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister pledged that austerity is over. This is a broken-promise Budget. What we have heard today are half-measures and quick fixes, while austerity grinds on. Far from people’s hard work and sacrifices having paid off, as the Chancellor claims, this Government have frittered them away in ideological tax cuts to the richest in our society. This Budget will not undo the damage...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The warnings come from across the economy: the car industry; farming and food; road haulage. UK manufacturing is currently in recession. So much for the much-vaunted “march of the makers”. The Government said that austerity would mean that the deficit would close by 2015. Today the Chancellor has confirmed that it will still be there nine years later, in 2024. Even now, great chunks of...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: There are 4.3 million people on national health service waiting lists and longer waits to start cancer treatment. We need to go further—which is why, as we pledged in our manifesto, Labour will raise taxes on the highest earners to fund an increase above the Government’s baseline. But it is not only the national health service that is in crisis. Defence spending has actually been cut; the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in thanking the former head of the civil service Jeremy Heywood for his public service and wishing him well in his recovery. I know from my conversations with him what an impressive, well informed and dedicated public servant he is, and I hope he gets through this difficult condition he is in at the present time. The Prime Minister says that austerity is over; the...
