Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. Following what the SNP spokesman just said, may we ask you, through your good offices, to arrange for the leaders of all the parties to be included in a discussion, online or whatever, with you and the Government so that, as crucial things come up, as they will over the next three weeks—important decisions and announcements will have to be...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. A very clear request was made by my right hon. Friend the shadow Chancellor that we get embargoed copies an hour or half an hour—whatever it happens to be—in advance, as we do with ministerial statements, so that informed comments can be made by Opposition parties. We fully understand all the difficulties of getting this package together by...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: And good luck to the city of Southend.

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: And good biscuits.

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: Could the Minister tell us how quickly this will be done, because the levels of stress out there among the self-employed are absolutely huge?

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: I beg to move, That this House has considered the emergency financial and social package needed to support people, families and business through the covid-19 outbreak. Thank you, Mr Speaker, for accommodating the change that we wanted to make to the Order Paper today to make for a more efficient debate, and to ensure that Prime Minister’s Question Time ran for the extra time that you gave...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend is right. There are lots of enthusiastic volunteers, which is great, but the initiatives need co-ordination and protection. We are dealing with assisting vulnerable people, so we have to be quite clear that the people who are volunteering are responsible and are doing it for all the right motives. All the volunteer groups that I have been in touch with and met are clear about...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: It was not so long ago that I was making lengthy speeches about those subjects, and I am quite prepared to hand a copy of our manifesto over to the Government. They are already being forced to implement a great deal of it because of the crisis and because of the deficiency in public services that we exposed during the election campaign.

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend makes a very strong point. Indeed, that has been raised by my right hon. Friend the shadow Home Secretary and others on many occasions. It is absurd that we have highly skilled people in our society who are awaiting a letter from the Home Office before they are able to contribute to our society. We are talking care workers, doctors, social workers—all sorts of highly skilled...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: If employers are putting us all at risk by forcing people to work in a non-essential industry or company or non-essential work, they should be sanctioned, and those sanctions should include fines. They have to understand that they have a responsibility as well. The Government should ensure the closure of any construction work that is not urgent or health and safety-related, just as Transport...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend anticipates the point I was about to make. We have all seen the images this morning of construction workers packed on to the London tube and other trains all around the country, going on to site because it is the only way they can earn a living, and putting themselves and all of us at risk as a result. Action has to be taken now on this.

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is absolutely disgraceful and totally unnecessary. If someone feels they are at risk, the advice from the Department of Health is that they should self-isolate—and eventually get tested, but clearly the tests are not available immediately. If the employer then forces that person to go into work, we all know what the consequences will be. There is a responsibility on employers as well in...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend understands the issue and represents his constituency extremely well. I know that a lot of his constituents are in that situation. We have to have better regulation of the private rented sector, with security of tenure and realistic rent levels. We also have to have the spirit of what was said, which was that there would be protection for people in the future. The danger, as he...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: Exactly. How on earth can she go around looking at places if she is not allowed out of the house? It is absurd. Labour’s demands are very clear: ban evictions for six months and suspend rent for those affected by coronavirus. It is going to cost and it is the right thing to spend it on. It protects people in their housing. As we look beyond this crisis, let us give tenants greater rights...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank my right hon. Friend for her intervention and for what she is doing about that. There are people with no recourse to public funds all over the country. Typically, they are people who are seeking asylum, their case is going endlessly through Home Office processes, and they are not getting help or an answer. Many groups are doing their best to help them. I pay tribute to the north...

Business of the House (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: It already has!

Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker, for making the best arrangements possible today to ensure not only that as many Members as possible can ask questions, but that the Government are held to account, which is the function of Parliament. Many more people will be mourning the loss of loved ones as a result of coronavirus this week. Our hearts go out to all of them and to those suffering from the...

Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for his very kind remarks. I believe in a decent, socially just society. He was talking as though this was a sort of obituary—just to let him know: my voice will not be stilled, I will be around, I will be campaigning, I will be arguing and I will be demanding justice for the people of this country and, indeed, the rest of the world. We can protect the health of...

Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: Obviously, if carers have to self-isolate because they suspect they have the disease and cannot get a test, their work is lost for a week and those who need care and support do not get it during that time. There are reports that care-home workers are being turned away from supermarkets in relation to priority shopping and not being allowed to buy more than certain items that they desperately...

Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Mar 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: I hope the Prime Minister will, because care workers are on the frontline looking after the most vulnerable people in our society. Keeping our care homes safe and well should be, and must be, an absolute priority. The Prime Minister has been saying for quite a long time that NHS staff will get the equipment they need, yet the Health Care Supply Association—get that: the Health Care Supply...
