Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Tom Brake: I agree with the Leader of the Opposition, the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), on one thing, which is that this is an abject mess. A rather unattractive feature of the Brexiters in this debate is that they tend to blame everyone but themselves for the mess. They are seeking to blame the civil servants, the professional advisers and indeed the remainers for the mess...

UK Nationals Imprisoned Abroad — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (20 Dec 2016)

Tom Brake: I thank all hon. Members who have spoken, and the Leader of the Opposition, the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), for making time to attend the debate. The Minister has heard the consistent and very strong message from all Members today that Andy and Nazanin’s detentions are unacceptable and illegal, and that their trials have been frankly deplorable. He is also...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — amendment of the law (8 Jul 2015)

Tom Brake: I enjoyed the speech from the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn). I am not making a leadership speech myself tonight, because nominations for the Liberal Democrat leader closed some days ago, but I agree with much of what he said about housing. Before the general election, there was an agreement from all political parties that something very substantial had to be done about...

Bill Presented: Backbench Business — Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2014)

Tom Brake: ...that. Clearly I hope that many teachers will have listened to his pleas for them to pick up this issue and will respond accordingly. We had a contribution from the hon.

Christmas Adjournment (19 Dec 2013)

Tom Brake: ...Since April the relevant services have been commissioned by NHS England, so Members who represent English constituencies should raise concerns on the matter with it. The hon. Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy), who is no longer in his place, raised a large number of issues. He wanted us to remember 3 Mercian, which we will do. He referred to the role of the trust special administrator at...

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 8 — Directions hearing (29 Nov 2011)

Tom Brake: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. One wonders why, having suggested that 365 days might be appropriate, the Labour party, excluding the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), has not considered other significant events coming down the line for which it might feel that control orders should also be available. I want to rephrase what I said about the Labour party...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (7 Jun 2011)

Tom Brake: ...to use computers for schoolwork, and so on. Those are real changes that are included in the Bill. Another area of concern that has been flagged up and to which the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) referred is the extent to which the person subject to TPIMs will know what they have been accused of. The Home Secretary said that the individual will know enough about the key...

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (2 Mar 2011)

Tom Brake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), who has consistently held his views on this issue over many years.

Backbench Business — [20th Allotted Day]: Voting by Prisoners (10 Feb 2011)

Member for Rotherham (Mr MacShane), who opened the batting for those supporting voting rights for prisoners, and the hon. Member...

Housing Need (London) (29 Jun 2010)

Tom Brake: Thank you, Mr Howarth. I shall follow your stricture and keep my remarks to 10 minutes or thereabouts. I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing this debate. He is right: many of the usual suspects are present for it. They include some ex-Ministers who share responsibility for the housing situation that we have in London. It is fair to say that housing...

Sri Lanka (IDP Camps) — [Dr. William McCrea in the Chair] (28 Oct 2009)

Tom Brake: ...for Enfield, North (Joan Ryan) on securing the debate. I consider myself a bit of a veteran of Westminster Hall debates, and I see a few others, such as the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn). What is significant about this debate, however, is that 22 Members of Parliament are, or have been, present, and that reflects the importance that Parliament gives to this subject. I...

Public Bill Committee: Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 (18 Jun 2009)

Tom Brake: ...not a bandwagon that Liberal Democrats are jumping on now. It may have been a bandwagon that we jumped on many years ago. I recall speaking in a debate with the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) about this six or seven years ago. So it is not a recent arrival. It is not something that has just hit our radar. Clearly now is not the time to debate the injustices that have been...

[Mr. Mike Weir in the Chair] — Social Housing (Central London) (14 Jan 2009)

Tom Brake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Members for Cities of London and Westminster (Mr. Field) and for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), who speak frequently and knowledgeably on London issues. The hon. Member for Cities of London and Westminster was right to point out that housing is one of the most intractable problems that we face as Members of Parliament, whether we represent central or...

The Caribbean (2 Dec 2004)

Tom Brake: ...been provided to the region? If not, what efforts is the UK making in working with the EU, the US and any other partners to provide additional assistance? As the hon.

Struggle Against Slavery (14 Oct 2004)

Tom Brake: ...s comments about how we, as Members of Parliament, should think what role we can play to ensure that the bicentenary is appropriately commemorated. Indeed, as the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) said, we should commemorate not only Wilberforce but those who might be called slave activists—all those who fought the campaign alongside him. We know from the events of the...

British Indian Ocean Territory (7 Jul 2004)

Tom Brake: I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing the debate and on setting out in stark terms a dark chapter in our history and the impact it has had on the Chagos islanders.

He stated that if, at the end of this Parliament, traffic levels were not held...
