Business of the House (7 Jan 2016)

Chris Bryant: ..., Mr Speaker? In fact, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman had to dig him out of that hole by resorting to the most extraordinary bout of circumlocution yesterday afternoon, claiming that “Jeremy Corbyn’s suggestion was that the scheme had been cancelled”, whereas in fact: “There was a proposal made, it wasn’t adopted.” In Shakespeare’s English, that does mean it was...

Business of the House (2 Dec 2015)

Chris Bryant: ..., the safety of the people of Syria and the lives of our armed forces, which is why we asked two weeks ago for a two-day debate—a request my right hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) repeated on Monday—so that Members had a chance to make proper contributions and to reflect on the arguments between the two days. As you have just said, Mr Speaker, 157 Members...

[Sir Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — backbench business — Local Newspapers (19 Mar 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...over the title. I am sure that if the Rhondda Leader were ever to close, people in the Rhondda would want to take it over as a community venture. My hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Middle East and North Africa (26 Apr 2011)

Chris Bryant: I sympathise with the Foreign Secretary, but I am afraid I agree—I do not often say this—with my hon.

I was disappointed that, for a time, it was not possible to bring Pinochet to trial for the undoubtedly criminal acts that he ordered in Chile, not least...

Chris Bryant: Contrary to the views of my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), many service families in my constituency are entirely behind the mission in Afghanistan and entirely understand the need for it, but one of the things that they are understandably anxious about at the moment are the recent deaths. It would relieve their anxiety if they were absolutely certain that the...
