Preparations for Leaving the EU (8 Oct 2019)

Michael Gove: ...accused my party of trying to establish a majority for political purposes in the House of Commons. That is Scottish National party policy: trying to establish a bogus, broken-backed majority with Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister for blatantly political purposes. As for using Brexit for our own ends, it is the Scottish National party that has been attempting to weaponise this argument to...

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of his statement, but what we have before us is a rehashed version of previously rejected proposals that would put the Good Friday agreement at risk and trigger a race to the bottom on rights and protections for workers, consumers and our precious environment. Given the seriousness of this issue and the vagueness of the proposals so far, will the...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (3 Oct 2019)

Jackson Carlaw: Our position is that further dither, delay and uncertainty, and the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister—to which the First Minister is disgracefully open—is much more damaging to us all than getting the matter sorted now. We are at the 11th hour; there is a need on all sides to compromise if we are going to reach a negotiated settlement. Yet, the record of this Scottish National...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Heseltine: ...through a general election campaign by attracting back Nigel Farage’s supporters. It is as blindingly obvious as that. You had only to listen to the speech today, in which the ultimate target was Jeremy Corbyn. But Boris has got it wrong. Jeremy Corbyn is probably the only person on the Labour Benches who actually agrees with Boris about Brexit. To focus on Corbyn is completely to miss...

Business of the House: Principles of Democracy and the Rights of the Electorate (26 Sep 2019)

Kevin Foster: ...conclude that my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) is far more likely to deliver what they want than the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn). Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered the principles of democracy and the rights of the electorate.

International Climate Action: Adjournment (Conference) (26 Sep 2019)

...Heaton-Harris Peter Heaton-Jones Gordon Henderson Nick Herbert Damian Hinds Simon Hoare George Hollingbery Kevin Hollinrake Philip Hollobone Adam Holloway John Howell Nigel Huddleston Eddie Hughes Jeremy Hunt Nick Hurd Alister Jack Sajid Javid Ranil Jayawardena Bernard Jenkin Andrea Jenkyns Robert Jenrick Boris Johnson Caroline Johnson Gareth Johnson Jo Johnson Andrew Jones David Jones...

Prime Minister's Role in Creating a Safe Environment (26 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I start by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips) on securing this urgent question. It is extremely disappointing that the Prime Minister has not respected this House by attending here today. His language and demeanour yesterday was, frankly, nothing short of disgraceful. Three years ago, our colleague—our Member of Parliament—Jo Cox was murdered...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendums (Two-thirds Majority Requirement) (26 Sep 2019)

Michael Russell: ...are always open to discussions about what referendums should look like, but the people of Scotland have to have the right to choose. That is the basic position. I am glad to say that it is one that Jeremy Corbyn accepts. Obviously Neil Findlay accepts it—nearly—but we need to get the rest of the Labour Party round to that, and Labour can then perhaps show an example to the other...

Business of the House (25 Sep 2019)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...people and say, “Ladies and gentlemen, you choose: do you want my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) or the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)?” We know why the Opposition are running away from a general election and are so scared of it. They do not back their leader, let alone think that the country will. We know that...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for giving me an advance copy of his statement. Unfortunately, it was like his illegal shutting down of Parliament—“null” and “of no effect and should be quashed”, in the words of the Supreme Court. This was 10 minutes of bluster from a dangerous Prime Minister who thinks he is above the law, but in truth he is not fit for the office he holds. I am glad to...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The only point of any importance that the Prime Minister has just included in his speech is his clear indication that he does not intend to follow the law that has just been passed that requires him to ask for an extension in certain circumstances. He also gave no answer on the two decisions this House has already made today concerning the publication of Yellowhammer documents and his own...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is extraordinary that the House is having to debate whether the Prime Minister will abide by a law that has just been passed by Parliament, and that the same Prime Minister, who managed to be here for the Division earlier, cannot be here to answer questions from Members, and no Law Officers are present either. All the Members who have spoken raised questions—

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Kevin Foster: ...would allow the Prime Minister, elected by the British people—either my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) or the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)—to go to that European Council and for a newly elected Parliament to be in a position to consider what is agreed, and hopefully to pass the withdrawal agreement Bill. Colleagues...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I will be brief, because the whole House wants to get on to the important debate that you have just agreed to. I want to ask for a very urgent debate on what I consider to be a matter of overriding importance and seriousness. The motion reads: “That this House has considered the welcome completion of all parliamentary stages of the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2)...

Points of Order (9 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I want to put on record my thanks to you for being a superb Speaker of this House, my thanks to you as a colleague in Parliament, and my thanks to your family for the way in which they have supported you through often very difficult times when many of the media have been very unfair on you. Your two sons are getting good at football. I did some kicks with them...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Bridges of Headley: ...doing the negotiating? We can debate all we like what it says in the Bill, but Mr Johnson has said that he will not go to Brussels. So who will be leading the negotiating team there? Will it be Mr Jeremy Corbyn? The Speaker? Someone else? Who will create this? It is just not clear. The reason it is not clear is that none of us knows. Noble Lords may say that they have heard me say this...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Alex Rowley: ...UK Government itself have all warned of the risk of food and medicine shortages, and the Trades Union Congress is explicit about the threat to our economy, jobs and hard-won workers’ rights. As Jeremy Corbyn said this week, “A no deal Brexit is really a Trump deal Brexit, leading to a one-sided US trade deal that will put us at the mercy of Donald Trump and big American” business....

Deferred Divisions: Early Parliamentary General Election (4 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: This is the second time I have replied to a Conservative Prime Minister who has sought to dissolve Parliament and call an election because they did not have a deliverable Brexit policy. Although I am not condemning the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) by comparing her to her successor, she at least made detailed speeches setting out her Brexit policy—even if we fundamentally...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (2A) (4 Sep 2019)

Lord Marlesford: ...for the European Parliament—the Labour Party even more so. That is why we have had a change of Prime Minister. The Labour Party is in even greater difficulties, largely because its leader, Mr Corbyn—this is totally relevant to the legislation that the House of Commons is in the process of passing—has been unable to make it clear whether he believes in staying or leaving. I happen to...
