Mrs. Afia Begum (Deportation) (8 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 10, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, the deportation of Mrs. Afia Begum. Mrs. Begum has a perfect legal right to be in this country as the wife of somebody who had permanent residence in the country. On 15 March 1982, her husband, Abdul...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill: Suspension of Elections and Appointment of Councillors (9 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: We are all grateful to the Secretary of State for being here tonight. I hope that he is not too tired later when he has to face an audience of over 2,000 parents of ILEA children at a large meeting at Central hall, Westminster. Many of those parents will be extremely interested in the answer that he gives as to why it is necessary for ILEA to have three administrations in two years and why he...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill: Commencement and Termination of Interim Provisions (9 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: What is the GLC's interpretation of the number of people who have written to it either in favour of or against the legislation? Does my hon. Friend think that now would be an appropriate opportunity for the Minister to say exactly how many people wrote to his Department both for and against the legislation, and when that evidence will see the light of day?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill (9 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is curious to end a speech by attacking the Opposition for opposing something to which one is opposed. I cannot imagine that it will get the right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath) back into much favour with the leadership. We are in an incredible position. Instead of facing up to the problems of Greater London and the metropolitan county areas and the many difficulties...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions): Suspension of Elections and Appointment of, Councillors (10 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have some experience of these matters myself. I wanted to ask my hon. Friend, through you, Mr. Walker, whether he would be erecting the monument as a tribute to the Secretary of State, the Parliamentary Under—secretary, the Prime Minister, or, indeed, the right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath) for his opposition to the provision. I think that the Committee needs to know...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions): Supplementary Provisions (10 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is it not an honourable part of this country's political tradition that if someone violently disagrees with a course of action, it is perfectly reasonable for him to boycott a body that is established to destroy the institutions that we seek to defend?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions): Establishment and Functions of Staff Commission. (10 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I strongly support everything that my hon. Friend the Member for Norwood (Mr. Fraser) has said. I speak as an hon. Member who is sponsored by the National Union of Public Employees. I have spent seven years as an organiser for that union within the GLC and ILEA. For some of that time I was secretary of the trade union joint negotiating committee for manual workers, which represented some...

Prayers: Policing in the Metropolis (11 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Prayers: Archway Road, North London (Inquiry) (11 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am grateful to be called in this Adjournment debate on the subject of the Archway road inquiry, because it is a matter of enormous anxiety and importance to my constituents and those of the neighbouring constituency of Hornsey and Wood Green. The Archway road project was conceived in the mid-1960s when the then Ministry of Transport was supporting a proposal to develop a motorway-standard...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill: Postponement of Exercise of Functions (22 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: I strongly support amendment No. 40. Although it might seem curious to outsiders that we should be discussing boundary commissions at 3.20 am, if they realised just how much the Bill impinges on so many of their democratic and civic rights, they would be even more appalled than they are already. The amendment seeks the deletion of subsection (2), which states: The Local Government Boundary...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill: Accounts and Financial Consultation (22 May 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: On a point of order, Mr. Armstrong. A rather serious noise is coming from under our Bench. It does not appear to be a sedentary Member.
