Post Offices (Islington) (29 Oct 2013)

Jo Swinson: I welcome the opportunity to discuss post offices in Islington with the hon. Members for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) and for Islington South and Finsbury (Emily Thornberry), and I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington North on securing this debate on proposals to change the Crown post office network and the impact on branches in Islington in both constituencies. The hon. Gentleman...

UK-Listed Mining Companies — [Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] (28 Nov 2012)

Jo Swinson: ...does. That runs the risk of just delaying or preventing the process, when there is a lot of consensus on extractives, so there will be further discussions. As the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) explained, he has unfortunately had to leave for another engagement. He made a point about outsourcing parts of the mining industry to avoid transparency. It is worth putting it on...

Court of Justice of the European Union: EU Charter of Fundamental Human Rights (12 Jul 2012)

Jo Swinson: ...improve their human rights records. Of course more can always be done, and it is right to recognise that there are problems within EU member states. Indeed, as the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) said, we in the UK should not be complacent but should maintain an ever-vigilant approach to improving human rights in this country, too. Member states do a lot individually, but...

[Mr. George Howarth in the Chair] — British Indian Ocean Territory (10 Mar 2010)

Jo Swinson: I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing this debate. As other Members of the House know, he has been a passionate campaigner on this issue for many years, and today he set out the case using his great knowledge of the subject in a powerful speech. I struggled to find anything in it with which I disagreed. I reiterate my support and that of many in my...

[Mr. David Amess in the Chair] — Israeli Settlements (21 Jul 2009)

Jo Swinson: ...east, water is a key issue, and with rapidly increasing climate change, the problem will only become worse. Water is also a problem on the west bank. As the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) pointed out, most of the water is going to the Israeli settlers' farms, which makes that land very fertile but causes havoc elsewhere in the region. Let me turn to the products that...

[Mr. Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Human Rights (Iran) (8 Jul 2009)

Jo Swinson: ...possible for us to call on other Governments to uphold their international obligations. That is what we hope to do. I wholeheartedly endorse what was said by the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn). If we are to ask other countries to accept international election observers we should be open enough to accept them here. Indeed, when we had difficulties with ballot papers in...

[John Bercow in the Chair] — Overseas Territories (23 Apr 2009)

Jo Swinson: ...included various eloquent contributions on the matter from my hon. Friend the Member for St. Ives (Andrew George) and from members of the all-party group, the hon. Members for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) and for Romford (Andrew Rosindell). The report says that there is a strong moral case for the return of the islanders. I fail to see how anybody could argue seriously against that...

[Mr. David Amess in the Chair] — Latin America (3 Mar 2009)

Jo Swinson: I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing the debate. One and a half hours seems a short time in which to cover thoroughly the many issues affecting a huge continent, but it is good that in this short debate we have been able to raise many aspects of the things that affect the continent and the UK's relations with it. The debate is particularly...

[Mr. Greg Pope in the Chair] — Global Security (Middle East) (24 Jan 2008)

Jo Swinson: .... The right hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Sir John Stanley) made an eloquent and passionate contribution about the situation in Gaza in particular. The hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) made a characteristically powerful speech. I commend his courage and that of others who went to monitor the elections in Gaza. The hon. Member for Castle Point (Bob Spink) made a...
