Backbench Business: International Human Rights Day — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (8 Dec 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Persons of the Council of Europe. It was a lengthy but fascinating meeting that was very well attended by people from all over the member states of the Council of Europe. There were two significant reports, one of which was about the situation facing refugees from Afghanistan. It looked at problems with Afghan refugees settling around Europe, the poverty in which they are living, the...

Protecting and Restoring Nature: COP15 and Beyond (14 Jul 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...environment. What we do in our schools and our parks is important, as is the message that those young people get. I have always visited each of the primary schools in my constituency as often as I can, usually once a year, and I have been to two primary schools and one secondary school in the past week to hold a discussion with students about their views on the environment. These are...

Non-proliferation Treaty: 50th Anniversary Review (13 Jul 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of nuclear weapons, which helped to bring about an Africa nuclear weapons-free zone. We also have such zones in Latin America and central Asia, so the steps have been enormous. The significance of the 2010 and 2015 review conferences was in the discussion about the middle east weapons of mass destruction-free zone. That is a bit of a mouthful, but the point was for it to cover the whole...

Iran’s Nuclear Programme (30 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...what is the alternative? The alternative is we increase the number of nuclear weapons within the region. I hope to goodness that Iran never develops nuclear weapons, as I wish other countries did not. We have to remember, though, that this country has nuclear weapons and this Government have just announced an increase in the number of our nuclear warheads, so it is not as if we are on the...

Grenfell Tower: Fifth Anniversary (16 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...food and comfort for them. The horror has not gone away. The trauma of losing loved ones—children, parents—has not gone away and will never go away. We should pay tribute to all those who did so much to help and provide support. In particular, we should pay tribute to the firefighters who risked everything to try to save life. I remember just like it was two minutes ago their telling...

Easter Adjournment (31 Mar 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Prime Minister quite rightly condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine and then, at the same time, asks Saudi Arabia to supply us with more oil, because we are not buying oil or gas from Russia—we did not buy that much gas from Russia anyway—and asks it to co-operate. Lewis Hamilton and others have done more for human rights in Saudi Arabia than the British Government by simply...

P&O Ferries and Employment Rights (21 Mar 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: .... This is modern Britain, and people turned up wearing balaclavas, with tasers and handcuffs, to get workers off a ship because they might not want to leave. The workers were then told that if they did not accept the money and sign an order that would forever seal their lips on the subject, they would get no money at all. This is modern Britain at its absolute worst. The situation also...

Ukraine (21 Feb 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: At this incredibly dangerous time, I notice that the Defence Secretary did not say much about the Minsk agreement. Does he think that is a way by which we can get back to talks? If the Russians pulled back, would he be prepared to countenance any reduction in the NATO presence on the border, to bring about longer-term, secure peace in the region?

Ethiopia: Humanitarian and Political Situation — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...parliamentary group for Ethiopia and Djibouti, which does what all-party groups on different countries should do, making sure that Parliament takes issues seriously, debates them and sees what we can do to assist, if appropriate. I share the view of the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) that it is disappointing that such a small number of Members are here today. This is a major...

Bahraini Political Prisoners (13 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...I also went along to support that strike, and as a result I received a letter—a quite substantial letter—from the Bahraini embassy on 24 December. I quote one line from it: “No person is, or can be, prosecuted for such activities,”— that is, freedom of expression and other issues— “and no person is arrested or in custody in Bahrain in connection with peaceful political...

Building Safety (10 Jan 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the horror of Grenfell happened, many local authorities such as mine responded immediately by inspecting all buildings and taking action as appropriate, as they should have done. The private sector did not do that for many of our leasehold properties. I had a very sad conversation with a group of leaseholders a month ago. They are completely stuck. They cannot sell or move, they have...

Ethiopia, Sudan and Tigray: Humanitarian Situation — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (3 Nov 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...independent investigators to get there to understand exactly what is going on. One plea I am going to make at the end of my contribution is that international observers be allowed in, so that they can assess what is on. If I may, I think we should put this in the context of the tragic history of Ethiopia. It has been through all kinds of things, right back to the Italian fascists’...

Sustainability and Climate Change (National Curriculum) — [Nusrat Ghani in the Chair] (27 Oct 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., we start to change the mindset in those that plan education, we will have done a very good job indeed. I hope that when the Minister replies to the debate, he will recognise the need to significantly change the way in which our primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and universities approach the natural world and the environment, and that energy policy, transport policy, food...

UK Defence Spending (24 Jun 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...or to go to war with somebody else, or is it the ability to feed your population and to ensure that they have good healthcare and good education and breathe clean air, and that their young people can look forward to a future with some degree of hope? For many around the world, that is not a possibility and they suffer grievously. Looking at the causes of wars that have happened over recent...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (11 May 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...if not permanent, and that they have a chance, later on, of getting council housing. That means giving local authorities the finance and power to build, rather than having to go through the most arcane negotiations to get some degree of social housing from each development site. In my constituency, buying a place is impossible for anyone on average earnings, twice average earnings or...

Coronavirus (25 Mar 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...led to an increase in domestic violence. I have raised these matters before during debates and questions on this. Overall, the Government’s record through the pandemic has been lamentable. They did not take seriously what the World Health Organisation was telling them in January last year, 15 months ago, and their levels of incompetence over the provision of PPE and their handing out of...

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...workers, but actual pay increases to recognise the massive contribution that they are making to our society. The Budget said a great deal about corporation tax and other business taxes, but it did not say very much about tax evasion or tax avoidance. From the Government’s statements, they propose to raise around £2.2 billion between now and 2025—in the next four years—from tax...

Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy (9 Feb 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...were advised in 2008 of the need to prioritise preparations for dealing with a global pandemic. The shortages of personal protective equipment and everything else show that they absolutely did not do that. The introduction to that report quite rightly says, on page 3, that we should look at the “drivers” of conflict. The wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and now Yemen have led to...

Business of the House (30 Dec 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: Before the corona crisis, there was already a rising mental health problem in Britain, with unprecedented numbers of people trying to access mental support, which was often inadequate and they did not get any, and an increasing number of suicides, particularly among young men. The corona crisis has thrown this up and made the situation even worse, with many not getting the support they need,...

Provisional Local Government Finance Settlement (17 Dec 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: The reality of this statement is that the Minister has thanked local authorities for all the good work they have done during the covid crisis, and they can look forward to cuts in services and the loss of jobs next year. I have a specific question on housing. He did not really reply to the question from my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms) on those with no recourse to...
