Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2018)

David Lidington: I am not sure whether that was meant as an attack on the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) or the right hon. Member for Islington South and Finsbury (Emily Thornberry), but I can say to the hon. Gentleman that if there is a particular bid that he feels has been unfairly treated, he is welcome to take that up with the new arts Minister, who I know will want to examine the...

Business of the House (20 Apr 2017)

David Lidington: Since the hon. Gentleman is wishing for a change in Government, he is confirming that his party wishes to prop up the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) as the leader of a putative coalition or minority Government. It is good to have that confirmation on the record. On the hon. Gentleman’s point about the provision of jobcentres in Glasgow, as he has heard me say before,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Europe: Renegotiation (10 Nov 2015)

David Lidington: ...equally committed to British withdrawal from the EU. The truth is that this is a matter—[Interruption.] Indeed, I am reminded that the Labour party leader, the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), has not been renowned for his enthusiasm for British membership of the EU. This issue has legitimately cut across party divisions for as long as EU membership has been a concern in...

Human Rights in Mexico (28 Jan 2015)

David Lidington: ...It is timely, given the approaching state visit by the President of Mexico. This would hardly be a debate on Latin American matters without the contribution of the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), whom I have heard speak on these themes on other occasions in the House. No one in the House, whatever political party they represent, has any doubt about his long-standing,...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Backbench Business — US-UK Mutual Defence Agreement (6 Nov 2014)

David Lidington: I, too, welcome you to the Chair, Sir Roger. I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) and my hon. Friend the Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis) on securing this debate on the mutual defence agreement, which has spread out to consider wider aspects of this country’s nuclear defence policy. It is noticeable that the debate has been conducted by Members on all...

Bangladesh (16 Jan 2014)

David Lidington: ...Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), and the hon. Members for Bethnal Green and Bow (Rushanara Ali), for Rochdale (Simon Danczuk), for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick), for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), for Luton South (Gavin Shuker) and for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy). Listening to the speeches of Members from different political parties, I have been struck that they share a...

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

David Lidington: ...these issues with my Hungarian opposite number over the past 18 months. I will write to the hon. Lady with a little more detail on the matters she raised. The hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) asked about the scope of the action plan and the special representative’s role. Article 20 of the action plan relates to gender-based violence, article 14 deals with action against...

Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (11 Nov 2009)

David Lidington: ...Iranian Government in the nuclear negotiations. It would be helpful to have the Minister's assessment of how the Government see the state of play there. As the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) pointed out, the context for next year's review of the NPT will also be affected by progress, or the lack of it, in other nuclear negotiations and agreements. I do not think that he...

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

David Lidington: I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing this debate. He has long championed the cause of Parliament taking a greater interest than we tend to do in the affairs of this region. I share his regret that we rarely have the opportunity to debate a part of the world whose economy, and whose importance in environmental matters and in efforts to alleviate the...

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Israel (20 May 2008)

David Lidington: ...political aspirations and economic prospects. If one is looking for people who are demonstrating and lobbying for Palestinian rights—I have heard the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) make this point himself on the Floor of the House—one will find them in Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities. Again, that pluralism is a source of great strength. It is right, however, that...

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

David Lidington: the Minister. Quite rightly the debate has focused on the dispute between Israel and the Palestinians and, in particular, on the situation in Gaza, which the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) described as a humanitarian catastrophe. As the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson) said, it is easy to allow a sense of disappointment, pessimism and frustration to...

[Mr. Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Human Rights (11 Oct 2007)

David Lidington: ...of respect for human rights through our pursuit of British interests overseas. I shall start by considering the United Nations, which is something that the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) highlighted. When I read the Government's "Human Rights Annual Report"—a document that is even more comprehensive than the Committee's report—I realised that the Government had...

[Miss Anne Begg in the Chair] — Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (24 Jul 2007)

David Lidington: I congratulate the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) on securing the debate. He has long had an utterly consistent approach to these matters, and it will not surprise him that he and I disagree on one or two significant points. He has kept his CND badge polished and on public display even in recent years when it has become somewhat unfashionable among leading members of his...

Opposition Parties (Financial Assistance) (8 Feb 2006)

David Lidington: ...various Opposition parties, questioned the appropriateness of the measure. It was ironic that the Government's chief support came from an unlikely alliance of the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), in his new found vocation as a cheerleader for the Treasury Bench, and my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Mr. Hogg), in that fine...
