Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Strategic Defence and Security Review (19 Oct 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: The nuclear non-proliferation treaty commits this country to long-term nuclear disarmament and to take steps to achieve that. The Prime Minister has just announced the replacement of the Trident nuclear system at some point in the future. Is this not illegal under the terms of that treaty, and how much money will it cost us to develop another generation of weapons of mass destruction, when...

Health and Social Care Bill (31 Jan 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, in the rush to establish a GP commissioning system, PCTs are being merged, and that large numbers of highly skilled staff are disappearing quickly, as is the ability of PCTs to administer anything, and all this before the Bill has even received a Second Reading? Does he not think that the Secretary of State is culpable in the rapid disintegration and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Student Visa System (19 Nov 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Minister take this opportunity to wish the international students at London Metropolitan university all the best for their continuing studies there and assure those who have been given one year that they will indeed be allowed to complete the totality of their degree course? Will he confirm that he is having discussions with the university to allow it once more to recruit...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Arms Trade (20 Jan 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: In that case, will the Foreign Secretary please explain to the House why Britain has routinely supplied arms—anti-personnel equipment—to Bahrain that have been used to oppress and suppress demonstrations in Bahrain, and our reward is to provide yet more arms and a British military base there? Should we not really engage with Bahrain on solving the human rights issues and freeing the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Iran: Nuclear Deal (15 Jul 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am pleased that this agreement has been reached; it is a huge step forward. As a result of it, does the Foreign Secretary think there is a possibility of holding the middle east weapons-of-mass-destruction-free-zone conference, which was envisaged at the last nuclear non-proliferation treaty review conference and was supported by all parties, including Iran? This is surely a great...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Dec 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: There are huge pressures on the NHS, and they are largely due to the pressures on the adult social care system, which is under enormous stress at the moment. Indeed, there have been huge cuts in adult social care because of cuts in local government funding. The NHS chief executive, Simon Stevens, has called for a radical upgrade in prevention and public health. Does the Prime Minister agree...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jun 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: Last week, the Prime Minister gave a welcome commitment to the closing of the loophole in the posting of workers directive. We will hold him to that, but we are concerned about the exploitation of migrant workers and the undercutting of wages in this country as a result. On that issue, will he today commit to the outlawing of the practice of agencies that only advertise abroad for jobs that...

Business of the House (21 Mar 1985)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does not the Leader of the House think that there should be an urgent debate about the position facing rate-capped authorities, and that the Secretary of State for the Environment, as he is apparently not prepared to talk to the representatives of rate-capped authorities, should explain to the House why the Government have selected the poorest inner city areas for vindictive action to destroy...

Heller presented a Bill to abolish prosecutions for the expression of opinion on matters of religion: And the same was read the First time; and ordered to be read a...

Bill Presented: Social Security (7 Feb 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is there not the serious problem of a shortage of pre-school child care places? As a result, many private nurseries charge exorbitant fees, which people are forced to pay because there is no other way to have their children looked after. They naturally look to tax relief to offset that cost whereas a better solution would be larger and better statutory state provision of pre-school facilities...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (13 Mar 1991)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Secretary of State recognise that one of the great injustices of modern times is the treatment of Palestinian people by Israel? Will he impress upon the Israeli Government the fact that, for there to be peace and stability within the middle east, the Palestinian people must have the right of self-determination, and that that opportunity will exist if and when they are prepared to...

Prayers: Governance of London (6 Jun 1997)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am glad that my hon. Friend has drawn attention to the problems of poverty, long-term unemployment and deprivation throughout London, which, as he rightly said, are the worst in the country. However, the authority is not due to be elected until 2000. Do the Government intend to establish an economic development agency to promote employment prospects ahead of the installation of the new...

Written Answers — Home Department: Asylum Seekers (12 Mar 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the expected time delay is between the date of the determination of the adjudicator or tribunal and the date of service of the decision on the failed appellant under the rules contained in S.I., 2001, No 4014; and what the usual period of delay is between the date of the determination in a successful appeal and the sending of full...

Business of the House (18 Mar 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: I was pleased with what the Leader of the House said about the Sustainable Communities Act 2007 (Amendment) Bill. Is there any way that she can ensure that special time is made available in the last few days that we have left to ensure that that Bill gets through and is not obstructed by some arcane procedure in this House whereby anonymous people can make anonymous objections and prevent the...

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: State Retirement Pensions (4 Jul 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many people receiving the basic state pension and previously resident abroad have returned to take up permanent residence in the UK in each of the last five years; and how many such people were returning from (a) EU countries, (b) countries where a reciprocal agreement on pensions is in place and (c) countries where the British basic...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Falkland Islands Defence Review (24 Mar 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Defence Secretary not think it a bit odd that he said nothing in his statement about diplomatic initiatives or relations with other countries, and that only in response to questions from Opposition Members has he even conceded that there have been discussions? Will he be more specific: what political, diplomatic and defence discussions has he had with Brazil, Uruguay or Argentina to...

John Bercow: ...please come to the Table? The following Members took and subscribed the Oath, or made and subscribed the Affirmation required by law: Richard Grosvenor Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, for South Dorset Jeremy Bernard Corbyn, Islington North Jonathan George Caladine Lord, Woking

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prime Minister says that it is the only deal available. If that is the case, why was it not put to a vote on 11 December in this House? Why has there been a delay of five weeks on this? The Prime Minister said she hopes to get “written assurances” before the vote next week, so can I ask her this: will the changes she is looking for be made to the legally binding withdrawal agreement...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Cuba (15 Jun 1994)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Minister accept that the blockade of Cuba that has been carried on by the USA since 1959 is an appalling interference in one nation's affairs by another? Does he recognise that the lives of the people of Cuba have been severely damaged by it? Other Governments have managed to trade successfully and normally with Cuba. Why will not he put pressure on the United States to lift the...

Business of the House (24 Jul 1997)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Leader of the House make arrangements for the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to make a statement next week on the Government's attitude towards oil exploration on the Atlantic shelf and the environmental destruction occasioned by oil exploration and pollution in the seas? That is a matter of great concern. There is obvious concern that decisions may be taken during the...
