Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I, too, join the Prime Minister in congratulating Alastair Cook on a fantastic achievement and both teams on what has been an absolutely brilliant series, which I really enjoyed. The National Farmers Union, the Federation of Small Businesses, the National Audit Office, the National Housing Federation, Gingerbread and the Royal Society of Arts—does the Prime Minister know what these...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am truly grateful to the Prime Minister for that answer, the first part of which I wholly agree with. What they also have—[Interruption.] It’s all right. What they also have in common is that they are telling this Government that their flagship benefits policy, universal credit, is flawed and failing hundreds of thousands of people both in work and out of work. In 2010, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Child Poverty Action Group says that, far from taking children out of poverty, universal credit will now increase the number of children in poverty. Since 2010, half a million more children have gone into poverty relative to that time. The Government know that this policy is flawed and failing. Their own survey on universal credit found that many were in debt, a third were in arrears with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: We are all constituency MPs, and I think that most of us are well aware of the pain that universal credit is causing when people come into our advice bureaux. Some 60% of families facing cuts owing to the two-child policy are in work. Universal credit is not making work pay; it is taking money away from families and putting more children into poverty. The National Audit Office report found...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: My question was about the National Audit Office. The Trussell Trust backs the NAO. It says that food bank usage in areas where universal credit has been rolled out is four times higher than in areas where it has not been introduced. But, without resolving any of those failings in the next year, the Government propose to inflict this on another 2 million people. As part of that transfer,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is Labour that has been speaking up for the poorest in this country. It is Labour that has been challenging this Government. It is Labour that wants a decency within our society that this Government are incapable of delivering. [Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The mental health charity Mind says that there is a real possibility “that many people with mental health problems could see their benefits stopped entirely”. It is outrageous that vulnerable people risk losing out because of these botched changes. The Government’s Brexit negotiations are an abject failure. I can see that by the sullen faces behind the Prime...

Salisbury Update (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for advance sight of her statement and for the security briefings that we have received. Our thoughts today are with the family of Dawn Sturgess and with Charlie Rowley, who is still recovering from his ordeal. We are obviously very sad at the death of Dawn and we send condolences to her partner and her family. We also send our best wishes to Sergei and Yulia...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: There is no place for racism in any form within our society—on that we are all agreed—and we should tackle it wherever it arises, in our parties as well, and that includes the Conservative party. I join the Prime Minister in congratulating the English and Scottish women’s football teams on their qualification for the World cup, and I look forward to them doing extremely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The International Trade Secretary has said that he is unfazed by no deal; the new Foreign Secretary, who is here today, said over the summer that no deal would be a “huge geostrategic mistake”; and the Chancellor, who is sitting next to the Prime Minister, wrote to the Treasury Committee stating that a no deal Brexit would slash GDP by almost 8%, which is comparable with the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister says that no deal is better than a bad deal, the Chancellor says that no deal would cause a catastrophic collapse of our economy, and the Brexit Secretary waded in yesterday to say that there were “countervailing opportunities” to a no deal Brexit. Will the Prime Minister enlighten us as to what these “countervailing opportunities” actually are?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: A majority of people might have voted to leave but they expected the negotiations to be handled competently, and they certainly are not. I did not hear a single one of those countervailing opportunities. I simply say to the Prime Minister that she cannot keep dancing around all the issues. It seems that Panasonic has taken the cue and decided to dance off altogether—it is relocating out...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am not quite sure who the Prime Minister is listening to, but she may have heard from the National Farmers Union, which says it will be an “Armageddon scenario”. The TUC says that a no deal Brexit “would be devastating for working people.” The EU’s chief negotiator and President Macron both seem to have categorically ruled out the Prime Minister’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Yesterday the Brexit Secretary admitted there had been “some slippage”. Today Lord King condemned the “incompetence of the preparation”, saying that it “beggared belief” that the sixth biggest economy in the world should get itself into this position. The Prime Minister has repeatedly said that no deal is better than a bad deal, but no deal is a bad deal,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I, too, pay tribute to Nelson Mandela on the centenary of his birth. The people of South Africa stood up against the most vile injustice of apartheid. Their solidarity and the solidarity of people around the world freed him and ended the scourge of apartheid. We should pay tribute to all of them on this day. People are losing trust in this Government. The Transport Secretary, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I stated the fact that the Electoral Commission has made that reference. That is what I said. I asked the Prime Minister for a guarantee that her Ministers will co-operate with the police on any investigations that they may make. That is not judgmental—it is a guarantee they will co-operate. These are serious issues. Current Cabinet Ministers were indeed central...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: That is all very interesting, but could the Prime Minister explain why the Defence Minister had to rebel against the Government in order to support the Cabinet’s position of a few days before? The Government are in complete chaos. The centrepiece of the White Paper was something called the “facilitated customs arrangement”. Having spent a week trying to convince their own...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Prime Minister seriously expect 27 member states of the EU to establish their own bureaucratic tariff-collection infrastructure just to satisfy the war within the Conservative party in Britain? On Monday evening, the new Brexit Secretary was starting the next round of Brexit negotiations. No wonder he didn’t turn up—he doesn’t know what he is supposed to be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: We are 11 days on from the so-called Chequers agreement, and the Brexit White Paper did not even survive contact with the Cabinet or the Tory Back Benches, and has not yet even been discussed with the EU. The White Paper states: “The UK is committed to membership of the European Convention on Human Rights”. Is the new Brexit Secretary signed up to that?
