Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...crisis in Syria and I warmly welcome his statement today that he is emphasising the diplomatic route. In that connection, may I press him gently, as the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) just did, on the need to bring in everyone who can influence the situation? Is it not a good idea to talk to the new Iranian President?

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

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) seemed to think that the whole nationalisation debate was about a virility symbol and whether sovereign countries have the right to take those assets.

Democratic Republic of Congo (19 Apr 2006)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...DRC is well endowed with minerals. It has diamonds—at one stage it was the fourth largest producer of industrial diamonds in the world—gold, coltan, which the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) mentioned, and cassiterite. Its forest cover is abundant and rich, if it is sustainably managed, and there are rich agricultural lands.

The subject is important...

Housing (London) (3 Jul 2001)
