Joint Enterprise (Significant Contribution) Bill ( 2 Feb 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend makes a very strong point. Does she agree that there is a sort of perverse incentive on the police to be quite lazy about investigations of often serious incidents, because they know that, at some point in the future, they can deploy the law of joint enterprise and therefore do not necessarily have to get hard evidence against every single one of the people who may have been in...

Joint Enterprise (Significant Contribution) Bill ( 2 Feb 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend is making an excellent contribution about a very important Bill. Does she agree that many of the predominantly young people ensnared by joint enterprise come from inner-city black communities? Their families are devastated and often lack the media and political connections to mount an urgent and rapid legal case or campaign, so these young people end up spending several years...

Social Security (31 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I cannot better what the hon. Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams) said about poverty in this country and we should reflect on that if we are passing social security uprating orders because the levels of poverty are an utter disgrace. One has only to spend a short time in a food bank anywhere across the country to realise the desperation of many people who are prepared to...

Social Security (31 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Member was looking with interest. I am grateful to him for that, and for what he said. I hope that as a result of this debate the Minister will seriously examine the poverty created by the two-child policy, and that all parties in this House will recognise that we ill serve the community if we deliberately discriminate against children in large families. Children living in poverty...

Northern Ireland Executive Formation (31 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: We thank the Secretary of State for his very welcome statement, and we take the opportunity to congratulate Michelle O’Neill on becoming the First Minister and all the other parties that have managed to bring this agreement about. Does he think that this agreement will lead to an increase in all-Ireland institutions and their effectiveness—in culture, tourism, transport, health and so...

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (29 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: The ICJ ruling is highly significant all around the world, despite the Government’s opposition to South Africa even taking its case there. A few days later, when news comes out of the issues facing UNRWA, the UK Government, the US Government and others announce that they are withdrawing funding from it. I understand that the British Government’s payments are not due until April....

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (17 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: I was first elected to this House on the same day as Tony Lloyd in 1983. He was a brilliant friend and comrade who voted against the Iraq war, student tuition fees and the renewal of Trident, and he was a brilliant shadow Northern Ireland Secretary. He will be much missed by many good people all over this country. This Bill is an appalling piece of legislation. It fails to take any account of...

Defending the UK and Allies (15 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: Some 17 million people in the region are living in hunger and food shortage, the people of Yemen have been bombarded by weapons supplied by Britain from Saudi Arabia for years, and we have a dreadful conflict going on in Gaza, where there are 30,000 people dead or missing. Where is the comprehensive plan by the western nations to try to bring about a comprehensive peace across the whole...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does my right hon. Friend agree that instead of spending this vast amount of money on a failed Rwanda scheme, Britain and the other European Governments ought to be thinking about the numbers of people, many from Afghanistan, who are leading a marginal existence, in desperate poverty and freezing to death, on the streets of Calais and other cities around Europe? They are the victims of human...

Israel and Palestine ( 8 Jan 2024)

Jeremy Corbyn: The statement we have just heard really does not measure up to the needs of the occasion: 22,000 people already killed; 1.9 million displaced; thousands dying in the rubble; thousands of children dying because of a lack of medical care and food; and people dying of starvation, thirst and hunger in the Gaza strip at the present time. Can the Government not understand the anger around the world...

Israel and Gaza (19 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: We should all thank the hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran) for her steadfastness and for securing this urgent question. Eighteen thousand people have now died across the Gaza strip, and Israel is using food, water and medicine as weapons of war against a civilian population. There are 8,000 missing people under the rubble. As she said, a political solution is required,...

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does my right hon. Friend think an additional question might be what is carried in the RAF planes that are leaving RAF Akrotiri and apparently flying directly to Israel?

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Is she aware that only two weeks ago in the House the Secretary of State for Defence claimed that arms sales to Israel in the past year were less than £50 million? The figures she has given suggest that he had misinformed himself before he made that statement. Does she have a credible figure for how much is sold to Israel, as well as for the...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Member is making an excellent speech and bringing real humanity to the debate. Is she aware that the people in Calais who are trying to cross the channel are homeless, poor, desperate, and often victims of war and human rights abuses, and that walking away from international law and international conventions will not offer protection to them or to any other desperate people in the...

Israel-Hamas War: Diplomacy (11 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is it not very obvious that Israel is herding the entire population of Gaza, in a state of utter desperation and poverty, with a lack of food, medicine and water, and with serious injuries that cannot be treated, and that its ultimate aim is to expel the population of Gaza and to reoccupy it? Does the Minister not think it is time that we supported the call for a ceasefire, as every other...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Gaza: Fuels and Water (11 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, if he will make representations to the Israeli authorities on lifting restrictions on (a) water and (b) fuel reaching internally displaced refugees.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Gaza: Humanitarian Aid (11 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, what estimate he has made of the number of lorries that need to pass through the Rafah border crossing each day in order to deliver sufficient humanitarian aid to people in Gaza.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Gaza: Humanitarian Aid (11 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, whether he has had discussions with the Israeli Government on reopening the Kerem Shalom border crossing.

Sri Lankan Tamils and Human Rights — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] ( 5 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I want to get an assurance from the Minister that the British Government’s relationship with Sri Lanka will ensure that there is always unfettered access for UN human rights monitors and inspectors in Sri Lanka, because there has been, at times, more than reticence—indeed, obstruction—towards their inspection and it is obviously necessary to get an independent view of the situation.

Sri Lankan Tamils and Human Rights — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] ( 5 Dec 2023)

Jeremy Corbyn: I went to Sri Lanka on a delegation in 1984, when I raised with the then President Jayewardene the issue of the human rights system, the abuse of human rights and the use of the Prevention of Terrorism Act. I have met many Sri Lankan families who have people missing from that period on. Unless they get closure and an understanding of what has happened to them, the horror for individual...
