business of the house (today): Clause 1 — Seizure of passports etc from persons suspected of involvement in terrorism (15 Dec 2014)

Mark Field: Perhaps I do not share the great faith in the bureaucratic competence of the Home Office that was expressed by the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)—

Protection of Freedoms Bill (Programme) (No. 4): National Policy Statement (Waste Water) (19 Mar 2012)

Mark Field: ...of hon. Members who suggested that the Thames had been getting worse, and will continue to get worse without the tunnel. The hon. Members for Hammersmith (Mr Slaughter) and for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) made that statement in part. That claim is not supported by the facts, as regards the immediate future; it is also probably not entirely true as regards the past and present. I note...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 2 — Financial assistance for major works (14 Mar 2012)

Mark Field: ...on the Thames tunnel, and I am not convinced that that is entirely justified. I do not disagree with what has been said by the hon. Members for Hammersmith (Mr Slaughter) and for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn). Significant work clearly needs to be done to improve the quality of the water in the Thames, although, compared with early Victorian times, it is now wonderfully clean. That is no...

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: New Clause 3 — Expiry and repeal of TPIM powers (5 Sep 2011)

Mark Field: I have immense sympathy with the views that have just been expressed by the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn). Equally, I have some sympathy with the notion that we should look at this legislation on a more regular basis. However, the hon. Lady has not addressed the issue raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Bedford (Richard Fuller) a moment ago. The reality is that with...

Housing Need (London) (29 Jun 2010)

Mark Field: ...Hall on the continued complexities and persistent demands of providing affordable, decent and plentiful homes in the capital. I fear that I have joined the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) as one of the usual suspects in that regard, and perhaps in many other ways as well. The frequency of our presence in this Chamber testifies to the difficulty of striking the right...

London Metropolitan University (20 May 2009)

Mark Field: I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing this important debate. As he knows, one of the constituent colleges of the LMU at the time of its merger in 2002 was London Guildhall university, which is located in my constituency. At that time, there was a view—it may have been an urban myth—that there was central Government pressure to create London's...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Housing (Greater London) (11 Nov 2008)

Mark Field: Thank you very much for your guidance, Mr. Bayley. I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing this very important debate and on sharing with us his heartfelt thoughts. Twenty years ago last month, I moved to his constituency. As is my wont, I recently walked around that area—Birnam road, just off Tollington park—and judging by the new development on...

Orders of the Day: New Clause 9 — Planning: access to information etc. (27 Feb 2007)

Mark Field: ...and atypical area, and the policies applied there are not the same as in the rest of London. [Interruption.] I am slightly worried as I see in his place the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), who, together with the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell), has fought various battles about the electoral system that takes place within the City of London. There...

Transport (London) (25 May 2004)

Mark Field: ...optimism that has been shown about the congestion charge is also unlikely to come to fruition. Several hon. Members made interesting contributions; one was the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn). Having been a Finsbury Park resident and one of his constituents, I suspect I am solving one of the longest-standing mysteries troubling him. He wanted to know who the one Tory...

UK Economy (London) (10 Mar 2004)

Mark Field: ...Minister said about the debate around the Penrose report on Equitable Life; I listened to that in great detail with my City of London hat on. I suspect that the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) wishes to say a few words on that.
