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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...who wish to protest or assemble to seek police permission? We would condemn such legislation in any other part of the world and it should be condemned here. Those who turned out on Clapham common did so for a vigil but ended up being driven off the common by the police, who saw it as an illegal demonstration. These are dangerous precedents. We need to have the right of free speech and the...

Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis: Covid-19 — [Dame Rosie Winterton in the Chair] (3 Nov 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...elsewhere, off the shores of this country. We need to reflect for a moment on what it is like to be a refugee. Indeed, I raised these matters in a letter to the Home Secretary, saying that we did not want to see a repeat of the horrors of the Windrush scandal. So, it is also worth reflecting on the number of people in our country and in our communities who started out in this country as...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...clearly tells us that it is a bad deal. It is a product of two years of botched negotiations, in which the Government spent more time arguing with themselves, in their own Cabinet, than they did negotiating with the European Union. It is not only on Brexit that the Government have failed. Under this Government, more people are living in poverty, including—[Interruption.] I am talking...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Apr 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Mr Thompson...we encourage him to make the appropriate application” and provide evidence of “his settled status here.” Yesterday, we learnt that in 2010, the Home Office destroyed landing cards for a generation of Commonwealth citizens and so have told people, “We can’t find you in our system.” Did the Prime Minister, the then Home Secretary, sign off that decision?

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: Instead, this Government weakened trade unions and introduced employment tribunal fees, now scrapped thanks to the victory in the courts by Unison—a trade union representing its members. Why did not the Chancellor take the opportunity to make two changes to control debt: first, to cap credit card debt, so that nobody pays back more than they borrowed; and secondly, to stop credit...

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...sideshow about trying to appease—or failing to appease—half of the Prime Minister’s own Conservative party. That is not to say that there have not been some worthwhile changes. The red card system to strengthen the hands of national Parliaments is something that we on the Labour Benches have long backed. Indeed, it was in the Labour manifesto for the last general election; it was not...

Tributes to Nelson Mandela (9 Dec 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...learned a great deal. In his final unconditional release from prison—it is very important to remember that it was an unconditional release from prison; he was offered all sorts of get out of jail cards many years beforehand—he displayed such amazing magnanimity. I recall that when Mandela came here to Parliament shortly after his release—he was not President of South Africa at that...

Iran (27 Feb 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...minutes and no more, I hope. When the hon. Member for The Wrekin (Mark Pritchard) spoke, he said a great deal about the history of Iran, which was interesting to a point, but highly selective. He did not say anything about the more recent record of the west's relationship with Iran, such as the coup of 1952, which was promoted by Britain and the United States and which removed an elected...

Housing Benefit (15 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...years later. It centralised the system, and housing benefit efficiency got worse. The housing benefit factory that the council set up proved a bit of a nightmare, and the Conservative Government did not allow the council the capital necessary to invest in new IT equipment to improve the service. The council therefore did what many other local authorities have done, and outsourced the...

Orders of the Day — Antarctic Bill: Extent. (15 Apr 1994)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thought for a moment that the right hon. Gentleman had succeeded in cancelling my yellow card, but obviously not quite. I thank him for his comments about the 1981 Act, which is important. However, the legislation that passed through the American Congress and the Australian federal Parliament implementing the Madrid protocol—which the British Government also signed—includes a specific...

New Clause 2: Access to Legal Advice (21 Jan 1992)

Jeremy Corbyn: First, I must apologise to the House for not being present in the Chamber for some of the earlier speeches. Unfortunately, however, I did hear the speech of the right hon. Member for Chingford (Mr. Tebbit). Given that he served in Cabinet for many years, I should have thought that he would be more objective and would not simply take as his evidence two cases from the front page of the News of...

Policing (London) (30 Jun 1989)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...horrified by the incident—as we all are—and arranged a local collection to help the family of the dead children. It wanted me to put on record my thanks to the local police for all that they did in that terrible incident. That incident has cast a pall and a blight on the entire community. It was absolutely devastated by the deaths of those children. To attend the funeral of small...
