Ways and Means: London Regional Transport (Levy) (12 Feb 1985)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that many hon. Members made day after day, week after week, during the Committee stage of the London Regional Transport Bill. We pointed out that about 55 per cent. of households in London owned cars. In the poorer areas of London, which are represented by the Opposition the rate of car ownership falls to 40 per cent., 30 per cent. and, in some cases, to less than 25 per cent. That means...

Orders of the Day — London Regional Transport (Amendment) Bill (19 Feb 1985)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will my hon. Friend help us, and perhaps give way to a Conservative Member, if one cares to rise, by telling us the last time that the Prime Minister travelled on a bus or used any other form of public transport? When did the Secretary of State for Transport or Under-Secretary of State last travel on a bus or train? Minister have the most expensive form of public transport available to...

Prayers: Unesco (22 Nov 1985)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...with UNESCO is Mr. M'Bow's character, that debates are conducted by the poorest and most downtrodden people in the world, and that all of the money is being spent in Paris on high living and fast cars. I suggest that hon. Members should consider how NATO treats its senior staff and how much they are paid. A recent UNESCO study showed that during the first eighteen months of 1984–85...

London Ambulance Service (8 Dec 1987)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Employees, which has a large number of London ambulance service employees in its membership. It is in that regard that I am speaking, but I also represent a constituency in which the level of car ownership is one of the lowest in London. My constituents obviously rely on the ambulance service for dealing with not only emergency but non-emergency cases to a greater extent than areas where...

Clause 50: Consultation and Publicity (14 Jun 1988)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...for or what public money was spent for, yet that is what they are now used for. There is a direct correlation between that process of creating double housing for the wealthy and people sleeping in cardboard boxes under Charing Cross arid Waterloo stations every night. That is the sort of society that the Secretary of State loves to live in. He loves to drive in his chauffeur-driven car...

Policing (London) (30 Jun 1989)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...police and in favour of high crime rates is ridiculous and rubbish. Every year during the police debate we get the same kind of tirade from Conservative Members suggesting that we do not care about the problems in our communities. I say sincerely to the House that my constituency suffers as much as any hon. Member's—probably more than most—from all kinds of inner-city problems and...

Policing (London) (30 Jun 1989)

Jeremy Corbyn: The police did not agree with those who campaigned for the Londonwide lorry ban. They said that it would be hard to implement and pointed out all the difficulties that they foresaw. We succeeded in getting a partial lorry ban throughout London, but I see little evidence of the police enforcing it. We require the strictest possible enforcement of the ban, because it is not good enough to have...

Ambulance Dispute (20 Dec 1989)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...staff do and the pressures they fare. Can people understand the pressures of trying to drive through London traffic, deal with an emergency such as picking up elderly people or people from car, train or air crashes and then go straight back out on the road? I was talking to a group of ambulance workers in an ambulance station about this. I compared their experiences to those of rail...

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...

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...

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 — 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...

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 — 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...

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 — 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...

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....

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 — 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...

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...
