Black History Month — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (21 Oct 2015)

David Lammy: ..., Bernie Grant. Activists and campaigners are perhaps more prominent now than they have been in the past, particularly with the selection of my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) as the leader of the Labour party. He knows that campaigning and work often takes place at the margins, with very few people paying attention and listening. For many mornings over many...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Housing Supply (London) (15 Jul 2015)

David Lammy: ...manifesto at the last election, and I thought we had landed in the right place. Finally, there is the issue of brownfield land—this relates to what my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) said about permitted development. If we stick to the idea that all our solutions can be built solely on brownfield land, we will end up driving out business and industry, and...

Backbench Business — New Nuclear Power: Accident and Emergency Departments (7 Feb 2013)

David Lammy: an adjoining area, as currently proposed. We raised concerns about the problems in the north. I will refer briefly to the Whittington, although my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) is in his seat and will major on that. We have heard about Chase Farm and about pressures deep in the south, in St Helier and the Croydon area, which were described by my hon. Friend...

Regeneration (Tottenham) (11 Jan 2011)

David Lammy: other clubs. I am thinking particularly of clubs such as Sunderland in the north-east-I will not mention our near rivals, although I see that my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) has taken his seat and he may mention the name of that other north London club. Spurs was not doing much in the community, but there has been a transformation. I worked with Daniel...

Housing Need (London) (29 Jun 2010)

David Lammy: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), who has a long history of bringing to this place for discussion matters on which Opposition Members work as a team. My hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck)-I hope that she catches your eye, Mr Howarth-also has a long history of bringing such matters to this place. As London MPs, we are not here...

London Metropolitan University (20 May 2009)

David Lammy: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) for securing this debate. Hon. Members have touched on important issues such as widening participation, particularly in London. I associate myself with what has been said about the contribution of London Metropolitan university to widening participation in north London. The statistics show that we have increased...

Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, Etc.) Bill: Clause 11 — Unification of appeal system (1 Mar 2004)

David Lammy: ...speed. He wants the judgment quickly. In this field there are in practice—I have given the statistics—far too many applicants, sometimes, as my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) suggested, aided by unscrupulous solicitors who seek to exploit the system. We have to deal with that. In a sense, it is not justice. It is certainly not justice for the British...

Orders of the Day — Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill (24 Apr 2002)

David Lammy: ...(Ms Buck), for example. We have already heard from my hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow (Mr. Gerrard) and I suspect that we shall hear from my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn). Many Members have strong opinions on the issue owing to the nature of our constituencies, and I shall comment on that later. I was suggesting that there has been progress. My hon....

Housing (Haringey) (7 Feb 2002)

David Lammy: feels intensely like a problem faced only in Tottenham, it is linked to homelessness in London as a whole. In that respect, I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) for securing an Adjournment debate yesterday on the housing crisis in London. In that debate, he stated, rightly, that there are 48,000 homeless households in accommodation in London....
