Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 10 — Fees for criminal record certificates etc (15 Oct 2013)

Simon Hughes: ...and beyond recognised Stan as a doughty campaigner for civil liberties as well as for the rights of the under-privileged. It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) on these sorts of issues, and I join my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge (Dr Huppert) in paying tribute to his doughty campaigning throughout all the time he and I have been...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Sri Lanka (8 Jan 2013)

Simon Hughes: ...Siobhain McDonagh). I remind some colleagues, who I think have forgotten, that the subject of the debate is Sri Lanka and the UN responsibility to protect. As the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) said, I have taken an interest in the subject during all my time in the House—not because I have a significant number of Sri Lankan, Tamil or Sinhalese constituents, but because...

Tibet (7 Dec 2011)

Members for Bassetlaw (John Mann), for Vauxhall (Kate Hoey), for Hampstead and Kilburn (Glenda Jackson), for Worsley and Eccles South (Barbara Keeley), for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)—he is in the Chamber—for Wolverhampton North East (Emma Reynolds), for Leeds North East, for Glasgow North East (Mr Bain) and for Scunthorpe, all of whom I am happy to call my...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Conflict Prevention (21 Jun 2011)

Simon Hughes: ...many places are afflicted by not just political and economic crises but environmental ones such as water shortages, and other effects of climate change. The hon.

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Decent Homes (27 Jan 2011)

Simon Hughes: ...that at the end of a long struggle with the Labour Government, we were able to win the argument that we should not be penalised. My friends the hon. Members for Vauxhall and for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) will remember that, all the time, the Labour Government were trying to incentivise people to become ALMOs and so on, saying that that would provide a better deal. That should be a...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Housing Benefit (13 Oct 2010)

Simon Hughes: ...and the next generation in their relationships, and to the social fabric and community cohesion. The campaign for homes in central London, with which I, the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) and others are associated, recognises that some people are born and brought up and have their home and being in the centre of our cities. They should be able to expect to remain there,...

United Nations (10 Jun 2009)

Simon Hughes: ...will be the main theme of my comments, because it tested the effectiveness of the United Nations, which, put bluntly, was found wanting. I welcome my friend the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), who, with me, has been interested in this subject since we entered the House 25 years ago. Like me and many other colleagues in this House, he is frustrated that, in recent weeks,...

Sri Lanka (14 May 2009)

Simon Hughes: Like the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), I have sought to support the Tamil community for a quarter of a century, and wished and hoped and prayed that it would never come to this. Like other colleagues, I share the anger, frustration, despair and desperation of the Tamils in the country. I join Members in all parts of the House in paying tribute to the people who, with...

[Mr. Mike Weir in the Chair] — Social Housing (Central London) (14 Jan 2009)

Simon Hughes: ...could be a 5 per cent. purchase with 95 per cent. rent rather than a 10, 15 or 20 per cent. purchase. Fourthly, can we have a response to the question that the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) and others made about single people and couples, key workers and people returning from the services? Such people need to be provided for in all our communities. It is not sufficient...

Orders of the Day: Immigration (13 May 2008)

Simon Hughes: ...I am currently at the top of the Home Office league table because of the number of cases that I have brought before it. Colleagues who are present, including the hon. Members for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), for Slough (Fiona Mactaggart), for Hendon and for Regent's Park and Kensington, North (Ms Buck), also deal regularly with significant numbers of cases that would involve the rule...

Sri Lanka (17 Jan 2008)

Simon Hughes: what he says; all I know is that there are internationally authenticated concerns that much of the money has not ended up where it should have ended up, as the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) intervened on me to say. I am not attributing personal blame, but if that is happening, it is no good. I have two final points of concern. There are still huge numbers of unlawful...

Orders of the Day — Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 101 — Authority to carry (12 Jun 2002)

Simon Hughes: ...strikes me as entirely wrong. I recognise that it is better than a system that would give a junior employee of British Airways, or any other airline, information on why Sir Alan Haselhurst, Mr. Jeremy Corbyn, Miss Rosie Winterton or Mr. Simon Hughes was not an acceptable passenger. Of course I would not want such information to be given. I see that the hon. Member for Woking is glad that I...

Orders of the Day — Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: New Clause 9 — Control of entry to United Kingdom, &c.: use of force (12 Jun 2002)

Simon Hughes: ...have not yet addressed on the Floor of the House, although we debated it in Committee. It raises some important principles. The first is the one mentioned by the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn)—the question of who should be detained. Like him, I believe that detention should not be the presumption. The presumption should be that a person seeking asylum is as lawful a...

Extradition (19 Dec 2001)

Simon Hughes: ...of us. The Minister, who took interventions, was good enough to keep his speech to 17 minutes, the hon. Member for Woking (Mr. Malins) took 10 minutes, and the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) five. I am, therefore, conscious that there is a challenge and that we nearly stand between this place and its holiday. We also face a challenge because the regulations are a...
