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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Feb 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I did write the Prime Minister a very nice letter setting out our views. I am sure she received it and read it and I hope she will think on it. It appears that the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) was right when he said last week that in the event that the Prime Minister’s deal does not succeed “this Government…and this Prime Minister…would prefer to…head for...

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...

Prime Minister: Employment: West Midlands (12 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Since the Government did nothing to protect the steel industry in Redcar, I hope that they will do a bit better in Scunthorpe, where 5,000 jobs are at risk. The Select Committee on Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy raises questions about whether the Government actually entered into the negotiations in good faith. Another sector that has been failed by the Government is the renewables...

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...

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...

Delegated Legislation: New Clause 1 — TfL assets for development (disclosure) (16 Mar 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in public enterprise and public endeavour, I have to concede that the London Passenger Transport Board was established under a Tory Government in 1933. Lord Ashfield was its first chairman and he did a fine job in promoting its development. So even then, in the depths of the recession in the 1930s, there was a consensus that the public ownership of assets mattered, and he stood up against...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to Lord Bhattacharyya, who died last week. As she said, he was a champion of the car industry and manufacturing in general, and he played a key role in saving Jaguar Land Rover, not only safeguarding jobs but, crucially, ensuring that international research is done in the UK. We thank him for everything he did. Tomorrow is International Women’s...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] (23 Feb 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and the need to incorporate cycling in designs. Coming back from my one and only visit to Beijing, I met an engineer, a Chinese gentleman, on the plane. I have never forgotten this. He said, “How did you find Beijing?” I said that I thought that it was a lovely city and very interesting, but I was very concerned about the pollution and the traffic. He said, “Don’t worry. We are...

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...

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...

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...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: The warnings come from across the economy: the car industry; farming and food; road haulage. UK manufacturing is currently in recession. So much for the much-vaunted “march of the makers”. The Government said that austerity would mean that the deficit would close by 2015. Today the Chancellor has confirmed that it will still be there nine years later, in 2024. Even now, great chunks of...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Environment and Climate Change (1 May 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in bus routes, cycle routes and infrastructure, and reopening railway lines and improving railways in public ownership, so that people can travel quickly and cheaply, and not necessarily by car. The solution also means big investments, such as the Swansea bay tidal lagoon, and not prioritising fracking, which rides roughshod over local communities and damages our climate. It means planting...

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...
