Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in welcoming my friend, Imam Mohammed Mahmoud, here today. He showed enormous humanity and presence of mind on that terrible day a year ago, when he prevented violence from breaking out on the streets of my constituency. I thank him and all the religious leaders in the local community who did so much to bind people together. As a country, we should be bound together...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am very pleased that the Prime Minister is reading my speeches so closely. I said that the money sent to the EU should be ring-fenced to replace structural funds to regions, support for agriculture and the fishing industry, and funding for research and universities. May I remind the Prime Minister that my question was about taxation to deal with the NHS promises she made at the weekend....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: At the weekend, the Prime Minister said that “about £600 million a week more in cash” would be spent on the NHS. She continued: “That will be through the Brexit dividend.” Our net contribution to the European Union is about £8.5 billion a year, but £600 million a week is more than £30 billion a year. Her figures are so dodgy that they belong on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Last night, the Prime Minister sent an email to Conservative party members telling them: “The money we now send to the EU will go to the NHS”. The Government’s own Office for Budget Responsibility says we will not see any dividend until at least 2023. The Prime Minister talks about a strong economy, but our economic growth last year was the slowest of any major economy, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Under Labour the NHS increase would have been 5% this year, and the Institute for Fiscal Studies confirmed that this year there would be £7.7 billion more for the NHS. What is the Prime Minister’s offer? She has promised £394 million per week without saying where any of it is coming from, apart from those mysterious phantom taxes that the Chancellor is presumably dreaming up...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Health spending grew by 5% in Wales last year, rather more than in England. The Prime Minister’s 3.4% is actually just 3%, as it is only for NHS England. There is nothing for public health budgets, nothing for community health, and, vitally, nothing for social care. That is less than is needed just to stand still. After the longest funding squeeze in history, A&E waits are at their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I wish the England team all the best in the tournament in Russia and hope that it goes really, really well—[Interruption]—and that England win! This week is national Carers Week, and I want to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the thousands of usually unpaid carers whose commitment to family and friends too often goes unrecognised. As the Prime Minister pointed out, tomorrow...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I, too, pay tribute to the families for all they have been through and all the fortitude they have shown, but, sadly, the reality is that some of them have still not got a permanent home to move into. It is very important for the mental wellbeing of everybody that they have somewhere they can call home and they know it is their home. Last week, the Prime Minister confirmed we would leave the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am not really sure whether it is a backstop or a backslide that the Prime Minister is talking about here. Last week, I asked the Prime Minister about this, and I am sorry to bring this subject up again because it is probably quite painful for her, but when is the Government’s Brexit White Paper going to be published? She did say it would be published before the June EU Council summit....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: It gets ever more confusing, because at the weekend the Minister for the Cabinet Office told the BBC that it would not now be until July. Can I offer a solution to the Prime Minister? Instead of worrying about this White Paper, on which the Cabinet would have to agree, how about making it a Green Paper in which all their disagreements are in the open, and we can all comment on it? If the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: “You’ve got to face the fact there may now be a meltdown.” They are not actually my words, but those of the Foreign Secretary, even as his fellow Cabinet Ministers are preparing people for the Government's negotiations, which he clearly thinks are going to end in disaster. Last week, he also took aim at the Treasury—the Chancellor is sitting absolutely next to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: In the parallel universe inhabited by the Foreign Secretary, we are apparently not respecting the referendum result unless we want friction at the borders and disruption of the economy. The Cabinet is divided, and they are briefing against each other—they are even whispering during Prime Minister’s Question Time. The Prime Minister has been left with no White Paper on which to...

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of her statement. In her last couple of sentences, she almost gave us an inkling of the atmosphere there must have been at the summit. We could do with more. The G7 meeting can only be described as a failure, and the blame for that lies with the current incumbent of the White House. In the past, the G7 has played a positive role in responding to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I, too, attended the service last Sunday in memory of those who died at London Bridge, and I would like to put on record my thanks to Southwark cathedral and the Borough of Southwark for all the work that they put into that, and, of course, to all our emergency services who keep us safe all the year round. Yesterday, I was able to do that in person at the Fire Brigades Union conference in...
