[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Migrant Workers (Regularisation) (20 Jun 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...people in our inner-city communities. I used to be a union organiser before I came into Parliament, and I noticed that when people had no regularisation of their position in the UK, they hid. They did not join a union; they were frightened of getting a parking ticket if they had a car; and they were frightened of any authority or of going to the doctor. They were frightened in total. They...

Orders of the Day: Greater London Authority Bill (12 Dec 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that we have imaginative ways of dealing with it. For example, the creation of gas from waste and composting systems are both eminently possible. I understand why the Minister said earlier that she did not want to disrupt the existing process; that is a reasonable consideration. However, we do not have a reasonable situation, given the pathetically low rates of recycling across London, and...

Transport (London) (25 May 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...it is just too complicated for them to get together and work something out? That leads me to the question of the future structure for transport in London. When this Government were elected, they did the right thing in establishing Transport for London, a Greater London authority and a Mayor who had considerable powers over transport. Unfortunately, he has only just received powers over the...

Road Traffic Reduction (United Kingdom Targets) Bill (30 Jan 1998)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of the environment and transport planning. I represent probably the most densely populated inner urban area in the country, with the least amount of open space. Interestingly, it has below-average car ownership, but faces huge problems of pollution and congestion. I am the chair of the local Agenda 21 forum in the borough, which has carefully examined ways of improving public transport...

Orders of the Day — Petition: Child Labour (3 Jul 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...labour is a problem of the past. They think of children going up chimneys in Oliver Twist, or of Dickensian England. Possibly, they think of those tragic children in southern India, who are weaving carpets for 10 hours a day, or of the bonded labour in Pakistan and so many other places. It is true that child labour was an enormous problem in Victorian Britain. Indeed, many of the great...

Estimates, 1996–97: Gospel Oak-Barking Line (27 Jun 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...this opportunity to contribute to the debate. My hon. Friends the Members for Walthamstow and for Barking (Ms Hodge) and I have all lived somewhere near the line for a long time. In previous incarnations as members of relevant local authorities, we have all been involved in campaigning about the line. In 25 years, I have never lived more than half a mile away from the Gospel Oak to Barking...

Orders of the Day — Social Security (20 Feb 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...welfare system is breaking up, as ours is currently doing. Perhaps tonight, when the Secretary of State goes home to his house in the borough where I also live, instead of going in his ministerial car, he will take the bus or, better still, he will walk so that he can see the consequences of the Government's policies. If we look back and consider the so-called economic success, in...

Orders of the Day — Asylum and Immigration Bill (11 Dec 1995)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...immigration officials arrived at a block of flats in my constituency in search of a Romanian who had applied for political asylum and had been refused. Officials battered on the door and when he did not open it, they kicked it down, cut the phone wires and rushed in to take the man away. Their victim is a deeply disturbed person. He is disturbed as a result of his experiences in Romania...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence (16 Nov 1995)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...I must draw attention to the hypocrisy of the British Government: they knew full well of the abuses of human rights that were continuing in Nigeria, and the danger to Ken Saro-Wiwa's life, but they did very little about it. There is a direct link between arms sales and Nigeria's economic and human rights crises. Over the past 15 years, the massive arms sales programme of Britain and other...

Orders of the Day — Environment Bill [Lords] (18 Apr 1995)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...appearing in the ozone layer over the Arctic. Environmental protection cannot be dealt with merely nationally or locally; it has to be dealt with internationally. Britain signed the Rio treaty, as did most other countries, but it is not enough merely to sign and to say grandly that we are fulfilling our obligations, when plainly we are not, while at the same time promoting a worldwide...

Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill: Repeal of Certain Provisions Relating to Gipsy Sites (19 Oct 1994)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the requirement on local authorities to provide sites, saying that it should all be done by their private enterprise. Conservative Members also demonstrated with great clarity that they do not want caravan sites anywhere near their communities. What the Minister is doing in his silver-tongued way is presenting the worst face of intolerance of the Tory party; saying that we do not want...

Orders of the Day — Antarctic Bill (25 Feb 1994)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...gone there previously, but he certainly made people in this country aware of it. His writings show that he was concerned about preserving its wondrous flora and fauna. Much later, Charles Darwin did exactly the same. They recognised that it was a place of wonderment, amazement and research from which we can all gain a great deal of knowledge. That is the main thrust of much of the Bill....

Orders of the Day — Greater London and the South-East (1 Apr 1993)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the House this evening, I travelled along St. Pancras way, in the borough of Camden, just north of King's Cross and St. Pancras stations. I saw one of London's normal sights—a group of 50 people carrying plastic bags, waiting alongside dustbins and rubbish piled up against the wall for the night shelter hostel to open. It opens each night at about 10 o'clock. The homeless can get a roof...

Prayers: Policing (London) (23 Oct 1992)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...has just returned; he must have known that I was about to speak. I thought that the Home Secretary conceded that there was now an argument for a democratically run police force in London. He did not agree with the argument, but at least he conceded that a valid argument was being made. Many of us have advanced that argument year after year. It is unacceptable that what pertains elsewhere...

Orders of the Day — King's Cross Railways Bill: Protection of Neighbouring Properties (13 Jan 1992)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...condition was broken in some way, including Sunday working, and there was no comeback. Every time the main contractor was approached, he said that it was a question of what the sub-contractors did, and that he had no control over them. New clause 6 is essential if we are to protect the lives of people in the area during the construction phase. Is it right for people to be expected to put...

Elimination of Poverty in Retirement (19 Dec 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...adds up to more than £6 billion taken away during that period. Contrast that with the billions of pounds which have been handed out in tax relief to the super-rich, who can use it to buy second cars, third homes and fourth holidays each year. The property boom in London is the beneficiary of those tax cuts, and the pensioners have paid for them. The Bill seeks to restore the link as...

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill (10 Dec 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: This debate is obviously important and the Bill is two separate Bills. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Makerfield (Mr. McCartney) and others, I very much welcome the concentration on road safety in part I of the Bill. I agree that many of the proposals to punish drivers who knowingly drink and then maim people are far too soft. I have no sympathy for such people. They should try to put...

Disabled People (29 Jun 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the number of people with disabilities who suffer unemployment through no fault of their own, live in inadequate or unsuitable housing, and have difficulty travelling round and pursuing their careers. I shall add one example to the many that have been quoted. A good friend of mine, Nabil Shaban, who is a fine actor, performed the part of Ayatollah Khomeini in a Howard Brenton play about...

Orders of the Day — Environmental Protection Bill (15 Jan 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...speak of the need for controls on litter and of the need for greater recycling, but should we not be examining the need for the production of paper? In an intervention to the Secretary of State, I did not call for massive censorship of newspapers, but pointed out that we are an incredibly paper-wasteful society. If one buys a sweet in a shop, why must it be wrapped three, four or five...

Opposition Day: Ambulance Dispute (11 Jan 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of their own making. They thought that the ambulance workers were not serious about their claim. They were serious about their initial pay claim, and they are serious about it now, because they care about the service. Many highly skilled and trained ambulance workers can no longer afford to stay in the service. Hon. Members should ask London ambulance workers about their position. They...
