Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I too regret the resignation of Sir Kim Darroch. I think the comments made about him are beyond unfair and wrong. He has given honourable and good service, and he should be thanked for it. The whole House should join together in deeply regretting his feeling that he has to resign. I join the Prime Minister in passing condolences to the family of Tammy Minshall, who died providing emergency...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Legal Aid and Advice Act 1949. That Act, introduced by the post-war Labour Government, gave all people access to justice, not just the rich, and was an essential pillar of a welfare state and a decent society. The Tory-Lib Dem coalition slashed legal aid in 2013 and the results are clearly very unfair. The number of law centres and other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Some people have very short memories; the Tory-Lib Dem coalition cut legal aid but also brought in fees for employment tribunals. The then Minister for employment relations, the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson), piloted that through the House. Since that time, my union, Unison, took the Government to court and won, and, as a result, employment tribunal fees were cancelled....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Just so that everyone is aware of this, Labour is committed to restoring legal aid funding for family law, housing, benefit appeals, judicial review preparation and inquests, and real action on immigration cases. And, as we announced yesterday, we will end the leasehold scandal. The Department for Work and Pensions is failing disabled people. The MOJ has spent tens of millions of pounds each...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: My party is totally committed to eliminating racism in any form and antisemitism in any form. While the Prime Minister is about the lecturing, how about the investigation into Islamophobia in her party? [Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: This is one lecture the Prime Minister might not want to take from me, but she might care to listen to what the United Nations said when it condemned the UK Government for their “grave” and “systematic violations” of the rights of disabled people. The Windrush scandal has resulted in the Government having to allocate £200 million in compensation to people wrongly deported from this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Coming from the Prime Minister who created the hostile environment that brought about the Windrush scandal, who ordered “Go home” vans to drive around London, who refuses to acknowledge Islamophobia in her own party, and whose party consorts with racists and antisemites in the European Parliament and sucks up to those Governments across Europe, we do not need those kinds of lectures. One...

G20 and Leadership of EU Institutions (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I want to say thank you to my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) for the fantastic campaign she has mounted and the comfort that she has brought to those who have been through the unimaginable strain of losing a child. Those who, sadly, will lose a child in future will at least know that, because of her work, one part of the commemoration of that child’s life will be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am sure the whole House will want to express its condolences to the families of the rail workers who were hit and killed by a train this morning in Port Talbot. There will obviously have to be a full investigation into this, but our thoughts must be with the families and friends of those that were killed and injured. I join the Prime Minister and others in congratulating Rev. Rose...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister should be aware that her deal was rejected three times by the House, and when something has been rejected three times, one might think about an alternative method of doing things. A confidential Cabinet note apparently says that the Government are not properly prepared for no deal, and NHS trusts have warned that it will pose a major risk to NHS services. Furthermore, Make...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister could not get her own party to support it. The Opposition parties did not support it either. As the danger of no deal looms ever larger, JLR, Ford, Nissan, Toyota and BMW have all said that no deal would threaten their continued presence in the UK. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has said: “Leaving the EU without a deal would trigger the most seismic shift...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Why does the Prime Minister not speak to both candidates to succeed her and remind them that as they trade insults over no deal, thousands of jobs are at risk the more they ratchet up their rhetoric?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Labour party is about protecting jobs and living standards in this country, not crashing out without a deal. With tariffs up to 40% on some basic foodstuffs, will the Prime Minister set out exactly what impact no deal would have on food prices and on the farming industry in this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: As I recall, it was this party that put down a motion to take no deal off the table. The managing director of Birds Eye says that no deal would add 20% to the price of some foodstuffs “instantaneously”, and the National Farmers Union says that it would be very damaging to British farming. Both the candidates to succeed the Prime Minister have claimed that they will renegotiate the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: We made very clear what the danger of no deal is, and we will do everything to prevent a no-deal exit, because we know the damage it will do to jobs and living standards in this country. This Government have comprehensively failed on Brexit. Jobs are at risk, inward investment has fallen off a cliff, and manufacturing is at a six-year low. No deal threatens to crash the economy. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I hope the whole House will welcome today’s mass climate lobby, which is coming to Parliament today. We should be proud of it. This House, after all, became the first Parliament in the world to declare a climate emergency. I want to pay tribute to the young people and young climate strikers who have done so much to raise awareness of this issue. I hope Members will take the chance today to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Germany, as an EU member state, has banned arms exports to Saudi Arabia, so has Denmark, and both the US Senate and House of Representatives have voted to ban arms exports as well. The UN describes the situation in Yemen as “humanity’s biggest preventable disaster”, but the Government see fit to continue selling arms to Saudi Arabia during that situation, so may I ask the Prime Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister does not appear to understand the depth of feeling at the UN, Parliaments around the world or even the US Senate and the House on this situation. The UN itself has warned that by the end of 2019, if the war continues, 230,000 people will have lost their lives, of whom 140,000 are children under the age of five. The UK and EU law state that the Government must “not grant a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: If that is the case, why are the Government appealing the judgment instead of promoting a peace settlement in Yemen? Since 2016, for three years, UN experts have been saying that the Saudi coalition has violated international humanitarian law in Yemen. This air campaign has killed tens of thousands of people, and injured and displaced many more. The Government say: “there can be no military...
