Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent assessment has been made of the safety of people returned to the Democratic Republic of Congo under immigration legislation.
Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Minister not agree that this might be a good opportunity to launch the idea of a nuclear-free middle east, which would involve the non-development of nuclear weapons by any existing states in the middle east and, of course, nuclear disarmament by the only nuclear-armed state in the region, namely Israel? Does he not also agree that this year's forthcoming non-proliferation treaty...

Jeremy Corbyn: The Minister must be concerned that a number of train operating companies are considering cutting staff, and that Network Rail may cut maintenance and safety work. Surely that is of great concern, particularly as the companies are paying out large dividends to their shareholders.
Jeremy Corbyn: The problem of the lack of family house building is not exclusive to Sheffield; it is a nationwide issue, and it certainly affects a great many people in London. Is my hon. Friend aware that exactly the same problem pertains in private sector developments, some of which have now been taken over by housing associations or local authorities? We now have a disproportionate number of large...
David Kidney: ..., the Secretary of State said, “I certainly undertake that we will consider it.”—[Official Report, 26 January 2009; Vol. 487, c. 28.] My hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) pushed the boat out further and asked about legal aid for every bereaved family at an inquest. The Secretary of State replied: “We are happy to think about it, but as I have...
Jeremy Corbyn: I endorse what the Minister has said and welcome the strength of his call for a ceasefire. That said, if the Government of Sri Lanka are simply not prepared to listen to the international community's calls for a ceasefire, is it not time for some degree of sanctions, such as suspension from the Commonwealth or the suspension of military or trade agreements, to show that the rest of the world...
Jeremy Corbyn: Does my hon. Friend not share my astonishment that former Prime Minister Tony Blair said to President Bush that he could have missile defence in this country? Unlike what happens in Poland and the Czech Republic, there has so far been no substantive debate or vote whatsoever in Parliament on this matter. Does he agree that, at the very least, the matter deserves parliamentary scrutiny because...
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence with reference to the answer of 13 November 2008, Official Report, column 1301W, on Morocco: armed forces, for what reason a news article of 24 October 2008 on his Department's website on training and adventure states that a joint exercise had taken place partly in the Atlas Mountains and partly in the Western Sahara.
Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Minister accept that there are some very nasty undertones to the discussions surrounding the disputes? In times of difficulty, the traditional role of the Labour party, the labour movement and the trade unions has been to oppose xenophobia and discrimination and to try to engender a sense of solidarity among all workers to enable them to face the difficulties together. Will the...
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with (a) his Israeli counterpart and (b) officials of the International Criminal Court on investigation of Israel's Gaza military operation.
Jeremy Corbyn: I welcome what the Minister has said about the British assistance. Will he confirm that when the exploration is done to uncover unexploded munitions, any evidence of illegal weapons that have been used by Israel will be handed over to the appropriate investigators, who may refer the matter to the International Criminal Court?
