Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Captain Dean Sprouting from Jarrow on his death and in offering our condolences to his family on the terrible incident that happened. It is of course the anniversary of women first getting the right to vote in 1918, and I pay tribute to all those who campaigned all over the country to achieve that right. We should understand that our rights come...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Recorded crime is up by one fifth since 2010 and violent crime is up by 20%, and during the period when the Prime Minister was Home Secretary £2.3 billion was cut from police budgets. Her Majesty’s inspectorate of constabulary warns that neighbourhood policing risks being eroded and the shortage of detectives is a “national crisis”. Does the Prime Minister think the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The inspectorate also found that the police are failing to properly record tens of thousands of offences, and in addition to cutting 21,000 police officers, the Government have cut 6,700 police community support officers. The chief constable of Bedfordshire says: “We do not have the resources to keep residents safe... The position is a scandal.” Too many people do not feel safe,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: If you ask the inspectorate to look at unrecorded crime and it tells you what is going on, the least you could do is act on what it tells you. I want to quote something that may sound familiar to the Prime Minister: “The first duty of the Government is to protect the public and keep them safe, and I have to say to the Government that they are not putting enough focus on police...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Since 2015, direct Government funding to the police has fallen by £413 million, and Chief Constable Dave Thompson of West Midlands police said: “The current flat cash settlement for policing means force budgets will fall in real terms.” In addition to police cuts, other public service cuts are clearly contributing to the rise in crime: 3,600 youth workers have lost their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am very clear that crime is of course wrong. The way to deal with it is by having an effective probation service, by community service orders and by the rehabilitation of offenders. What the Prime Minister said goes to the heart of her record: she was Home Secretary for six years, but crime is up, violent crime is rising, police numbers are down and chief constables are saying they no...

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Only if you talk about Western Sahara.

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

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day. Many Members will be signing the book of remembrance and attending the event tomorrow. We have to teach all generations that the descent into Nazism and the holocaust must never, ever be repeated anywhere on this planet. Does the Prime Minister agree with the Foreign Secretary that the national health service needs an extra...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: The only problem with that is that it was £2.8 billion, spread like thin gruel over two years. Two weeks ago, the Prime Minister told the House that “it is indeed the case that the NHS was better prepared this winter than ever before.”—[Official Report, 10 January 2018; Vol. 634, c. 315.] Sixty-eight senior A&E doctors have written to the Prime Minister about what...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: Since 2010, we have lost 14,000 NHS beds. The King’s Fund, the Health Foundation and the Nuffield Trust all agree that the NHS needs another £4 billion. In December, the month just gone, NHS England recorded its worst ever A&E performances, with more patients than ever waiting more than four hours. Now the UK Statistics Authority says that the numbers may be worse because the...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister is responsible for the underfunding of the Welsh Government and the needs of Wales. Despite that, the overall Welsh Labour Government health budget has grown by 5% in 2016-17. It is Labour Wales that has a problem of underfunding from a Conservative Government based in Westminster. So far this winter, 100,000 patients have been forced to wait more than 30 minutes in the...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: A Labour Government would not be underfunding the NHS. A Labour Government would not be privatising the NHS. A Labour Government would not be underfunding social care. A Labour Government would be committed to an NHS free at the point of use as a human right. According to a whistleblower, as many as—[Interruption.] Hang on, hang on. According to a whistleblower, as many as 80 patients...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister must be aware of ambulances backed up in hospital car parks, with nurses treating patients in the back of ambulances. Ambulance drivers and paramedics desperate to get on to deal with the next patient cannot leave because the patient they are dealing with at that moment cannot get into the A&E department. It has been reported that a man froze to death waiting 16 hours...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: In the last six months, the Government have awarded more than £2 billion worth of contracts to Carillion. They did so even after the share price was in freefall and the company had issued profit warnings. Why did the Government do that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: For the record, Leeds has not signed a contract with Carillion. It is the Government who have been handing out contracts. It is the Government’s responsibility to ensure that Carillion is properly managed. Between July and the end of last year, Carillion’s share price fell by 90% and three profit warnings were issued. Unbelievably, the Government awarded some contracts even after...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: I asked the Government whether or not they had been negligent. They clearly have been very negligent. [Interruption.] Tory MPs might shout, but the reality is that as of today more than 20,000 Carillion workers are very worried about their future. For many of them, the only recourse tonight is to phone a DWP hotline. The frailties were well known: hedge funds had been betting against...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Well, they clearly were not looking very well. Carillion went into liquidation with debts that we now understand to be £1.29 billion and a pension deficit of £600 million. At the same time, the company was paying out ever-increasing shareholder dividends and wildly excessive bonuses to directors. From today, 8,000 Carillion workers on private sector contracts will no longer be paid,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: When Carillion went into liquidation, many contractors were still unpaid. The company was a notorious late payer, taking 120 days to pay and placing a huge burden on small companies. That is four times longer than the 30 days in the prompt payment code that Carillion itself had signed up to. Why did the Government allow a major Government contractor to get away with that? Will the Prime...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is a bit late for one subcontractor. Flora-tec, which was owed £800,000 by Carillion, has already had to make some of its staff redundant because of the collapse. This is not one isolated case of Government negligence and corporate failure; it is a broken system. Under this Government, Virgin and Stagecoach can spectacularly mismanage the east coast main line and be let off a £2...

Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: Mr Speaker, may I wish you, all the House and all our staff a very happy new year? [Hon. Members: “Hear, hear.”] Everybody is agreed? Yes? Thank you. I know it seems a long time ago, but just before Christmas, I asked the Prime Minister about the 12,000 people left waiting more than half an hour in the back of ambulances at A&E departments. She told the House that the NHS was...
