Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Democratic Republic of the Congo (1 Jun 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Minister recognise that one of the problems is that the militia groups and the armed forces operating in the eastern DRC are, in effect, funded by illicit mining operations? Huge sums flow tax-free out of the Congo, and then flow back in for the purpose of buying arms that kill and maim people. I realise that this is slightly beyond his remit, but can he speak to trade Ministers and...

London Metropolitan University (20 May 2009)

David Lammy: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) for securing this debate. Hon. Members have touched on important issues such as widening participation, particularly in London. I associate myself with what has been said about the contribution of London Metropolitan university to widening participation in north London. The statistics show that we have increased...

Sri Lanka (14 May 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I understand the problem with time, but it does no credit to this House that a debate as important as this has to be curtailed after such a short time. Is there any way in which it can be extended, even for only half an hour, to allow the few remaining hon. Members who wish to contribute to do so, and the Minister to respond? I understand that not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Speaker's Statement (13 May 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I thank you for that statement, and I hope that you will bear in mind during your discussions the pain and suffering that the Tamil people are going through. We must understand their need to express their point of view, in the hope that the British Government and others can encourage a ceasefire in Sri Lanka. These are desperate people shouting out for help,...

Written Answers — International Development: Algeria (13 May 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what assistance his Department is providing to refugees from the Western Sahara in refugee camps in Algeria.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Equality Bill (11 May 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: ...to my hon. Friend for her support, because she has done outstanding work on the issue. On the second issue, I want to return to the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) about caste discrimination, because it is certainly the belief of Caste Watch UK that the current law does not adequately protect those in south Asian or, indeed, other communities...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Speaker's Statement (11 May 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. I am pleased by what you have just said, but will you assure us that demonstrations and the right to demonstrate will not be impeded? Could we all not have some sympathy for the Tamil people out there who are desperate to do something to achieve safety for their families back home? Can we not recognise, at a human level, that people want their...

Business of the House: Swine Flu Update (29 Apr 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement, and for the huge amount of work that he is doing in preparation for dealing with this crisis. He mentioned the disparity involving the death rate in Mexico and the cases elsewhere. I realise that it is difficult to get information, but what representatives does he have in Mexico, and what co-operation is he getting to enable him to find out...

Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: Sri Lanka (29 Apr 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am pleased that the Foreign Secretary is in Sri Lanka urging an urgent ceasefire. I realise that the Minister is coming to this in her speech, but does she accept that a ceasefire is not in itself enough to prevent a resurgence of fighting at some point in the future? There has to be a political engagement with all the representatives of all shades of Tamil opinion; otherwise, a ceasefire...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Afghanistan and Pakistan (29 Apr 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: In six months' time, British troops will have been in Afghanistan for almost eight years. Now the numbers are going up to 9,000 and the conflict is spreading over into Pakistan. Is it not just a matter of time before the conflict spreads over for real into Pakistan, and British troops are also deployed there? Is it not time for a complete rethink of the whole strategy, which is beginning to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Swine Flu (27 Apr 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement and the information that he gave. May I take him back to a point made by the hon. Member for Oxford, West and Abingdon (Dr. Harris)? There is a marked difference between the death rate reported in Mexico and that reported outside it, apparently due to the same strain of flu. Does the Secretary of State think that more than one type of flu...
