[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Human Rights (Saudi Arabia) (21 Jul 2015)

Kerry McCarthy: ...the issue of freedom of religion and, in particular, the persecution of Christians, and he made a compelling contribution again today. We heard from my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) about a number of issues, which I will come on to, such as arms deals, the memorandum of understanding with the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Justice, and migrant workers. However, it...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Human Rights (23 Jan 2014)

Kerry McCarthy: I, too, congratulate the Committee and the Foreign Office on their reports. I echo the comments made by my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn): this is my third time responding to this debate and every year we make the same point, which is that we really cannot do justice to the depth and scope of the report in 90 minutes. I hope that whatever mechanisms are available...

Bangladesh (16 Jan 2014)

Kerry McCarthy: ...for being on the ground in a country and witnessing at first hand what is happening there. The hon. Lady spoke about the garment industry, as did my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn). The role of consumer power in flagging up these issues is something that we have not really mobilised. There are brilliant campaigns such as Labour Behind the Label, a Bristol-based...

backbench business — Non-Proliferation Treaty (20 Jun 2013)

Kerry McCarthy: ...interest to what has been, perhaps inevitably, a somewhat polarised debate. It is fair to say that hon. Members on both sides of the Chamber —my hon.

Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis)—although they reach very different conclusions about the approach to nuclear...

[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — FCO: Human Rights Work (14 Mar 2013)

Kerry McCarthy: ...for Croydon South (Richard Ottaway) and to Committee members for bringing their report to Westminster Hall today. However, I echo the comments of my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) about the need to spend much longer debating it. We had the same problem last year, and we could easily spend a whole day on it in the main Chamber to do justice to the issues raised....

Human Rights — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (26 Jan 2012)

Kerry McCarthy: .... It is not possible for me to canter through those countries, but there were some very well made points. I entirely endorse the comments made by my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) among others, about one and a half hours not being sufficient time for a debate of this nature. There is inevitably a time lag with such reports, and a lot of water has passed under...

Iran (Human Rights) — [Dr William McCrea in the Chair] (11 Jan 2012)

Kerry McCarthy: ...from being stoned to death has already been mentioned; that is a compelling example of how international pressure can have an effect on the regime. Asmy hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) said, there are small signs that such things have an impact, even though they may not deliver overnight the ideal situation that we would like. The campaign to save her life...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (27 Oct 2008)

Kerry McCarthy: ...Somali community on Saturday at a conference that was set up to discuss gangs and knife crime, including some of the issues raised earlier by my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn). Will the immigration Minister agree to meet me and some of my hon. Friends to discuss some of the issues that are particularly affecting the Somali community in the UK?
