Jeremy Corbyn: That is a very important point. Inner-London boroughs are not required to provide allotments in the same way as other local authorities, but the corollary to that ought to be that the outer-London boroughs take into account the demand of people from inner London to get allotments in outer-London boroughs. As far as I am aware, none of them currently does that. That means that people living in...
Jeremy Corbyn: How's the weather?
Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Prime Minister tell us what discussions he had while visiting Iraq about the probability of permanent British or American bases being established in Iraq and of there being a permanent military presence there?
Jeremy Corbyn: I am very concerned about the current level of funding for mental health services in London. I recognise that the Government have made a big increase in funding over the past few years, but I am interested to know what system the Department is using to assess future demand for mental health services. In my experience, there is huge unmet demand in my area that is not met by counselling...
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what facilities jobcentres offer to deaf people who arrive to make enquiries (a) with and (b) without an appointment; and how many front-line jobcentre staff have qualifications in British Sign Language.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent discussions she has had with her EU counterparts on removal of people without documents to Latin America; and if she will make a statement.
Jeremy Corbyn: How much aid to refugees from Western Sahara living in camps in Algeria his Department plans to provide in 2008-09.
Jeremy Corbyn: I support what my hon. Friend says. Speaking as a former union organiser in London, we always strongly supported national wage negotiations, and still do. Beyond that, we negotiated a London living supplement. This is not about regional negotiations or pay variations—it is a totally different animal, and that seems to be lost on some Members of this House.
Jeremy Corbyn: I am relieved to hear from the Secretary of State that brain power was applied in producing this document. What is the thinking behind electing somebody to an upper House for a 12 to 15-year term with no right of re-election? How could they possibly be held to account by the constituency for which they have been elected for such a long period? Secondly, why on earth can we not do this in this...
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many nationals of Latin American countries were in detention under immigration law in each month since April 2007.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people were removed under immigration laws to (a) Colombia, (b) Ecuador, (c) Bolivia and (d) Peru in (i) each month since April 2007 and (ii) (A) 2006-07, (B) 2005-06 and (C) 2004-05.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs whether the UK will be participating in the conference to be held in Reunion from 7 to 11 July on the EU and its overseas entities strategies to counter climate change and biodiversity loss.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many animals of each species of primate were imported to the UK to be sold as pets in each of the last 10 years, broken down by country of origin; and what steps are taken to monitor the whereabouts of such animals.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (1) how many primates were bred in the UK to be sold as pets in each of the last 10 years; (2) how many primates are kept as pets in England.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs when codes for primate-keeping under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 will be published; and when they will be brought into force.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what interim measures are being taken to safeguard the welfare of primate pets prior to the Animal Welfare Act 2006 codes coming into force.
Jeremy Corbyn: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that article 6 of the European convention on human rights provides a long-stop defence to ensure that judges do not abuse anonymity orders? Like him, I am concerned that we must not repeat the most ghastly miscarriages of justice of the past through the misuse of those orders.
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what the objectives are for the fund his Department is establishing in Indonesia to be managed by the Indonesian Bio Diversity Foundation; when it will begin operating; when it is expected to cease operating; and whether the fund will support (a) government and (b) private sector projects.
Jeremy Corbyn: Is the Secretary of State aware of the enormous problems created by the production of maize-based ethanol, as pointed out by the hon. Member for Lewes (Norman Baker)? In central America, the price of tortillas has gone up by 35 per cent. in the past year, causing real hardship to the very poorest people. Have we not an obligation to do all we can to reduce the production of maize-based...
Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many persons from Somalia (a) arrived in the UK, (b) sought asylum, (c) were granted refugee status and (d) were deported to Somalia in each of the last five years.
