Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: Let me start by expressing the horror of all Opposition Members at the events in Paris on Friday evening, and our continued solidarity with the victims and all those affected by conflict and terrorism, whether in Paris, Beirut, Ankara, Damascus or anywhere else in the world. Nothing can justify the targeting of innocent civilians by anyone. We know that at least one British national has been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Minister agree that it is vital that everyone in public life—particularly we as politicians—must be careful how we discuss these issues? Will he join me in making it clear that the dreadful terrorism in Paris has nothing in common whatsoever with the 2 million British Muslims in this country who are as appalled as anyone else by the events in Paris last Friday?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have a question from a taxpayer, actually. His name is John and he says—[Interruption.] He says that at a time when we are experiencing the greatest threats from terrorism ever faced, our police office numbers and their resources are being cut and that “Demands on the police have been increasing steadily as budgets are slashed, increasing stress on officers. Couple that with detrimental...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: G20 and Paris Attacks (17 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: and solidarity with the people of Paris in the wake of the horrific and unjustified attacks on the people who suffered in that city last Friday night. That solidarity extends to all victims of terrorism and conflict, whether they be in Paris, Beirut, Ankara or Syria itself. Absolutely nothing can justify the deliberate targeting of civilians by anyone, anywhere, ever. These contemptible...

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 Dec 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...west did in Iraq and Afghanistan was appalling, and was questionably legal in the case of Afghanistan and definitely illegal in the case of Iraq. We are living with the consequences of the war on terror of 2001, and if we continue to try to create legal obstacles and make value judgments about people without considering the overall policy we are following, we will return to legislation...

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 Dec 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...speak briefly because I know the Home Secretary is about to reply. Following the speech of the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis) about the general direction in which anti-terror law has gone, I want to make two essential points. Ever since I have been a Member, we seem to have had some piece of anti-terror legislation before us every year. I assume that there is a...

Overseas Voters (15 Year Rule): Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill (2 Dec 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one problem is that there is a mentality and a default position that anything to do with national security and terrorism has to be dealt with by secretive special courts and a secretive special process, all designed to protect the security services from any kind of accountability? Does he agree that we should actually rely much more on the basis of the...

Business of the House: Iraq: Coalition Against ISIL (26 Sep 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...a little more deeply about what we have done in the past and what the effects have been. We have still not even had the results of the Chilcot inquiry. The current crisis descends from the war on terror, the ramifications of which have been vast military expenditure by western countries and the growth of jihadist forces in many parts of the world. Many people have lost their lives, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: NATO Summit (8 Sep 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...13 years ago, Iraq 11 years ago, and now a massive NATO summit agrees to spend yet more money on defence around the world. What consideration was given to why there has been such an increase in terrorism since those two wars, and to why ISIL has grown as such a big force? Should the NATO summit, and indeed all leaders, be looking at the causes of war, and at the perception of the role of...

Bills Presented: Clause 6 — Commencement, duration, extent and short title (15 Jul 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1989 was also subject to a six-monthly review, but it went on for 10 years having six-monthly reviews before eventually being replaced by the Terrorism Act 2000, so that did not actually end the Act at all.

Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill (Programme) (No. 3): Clause 151 — Compensation for miscarriages of justice (4 Feb 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Commercial Services Union group meeting but will return, I was very involved in the Birmingham and Guildford cases. Indeed, Paul Hill, who was the first person ever arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 1974, was a constituent of mine. I went through the whole business of the campaign, and eventually those people were released and compensation was paid. However, I have to say two...

Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Programme — [Jim Sheridan in the Chair] (12 Nov 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...region. Some rather zany commentators in the US think that Iran should get nuclear weapons on the basis that it would create a regional balance and then we would move on. Balancing nuclear weapons terror is not a way to bring about peace. I thank the hon. Member for Kettering for securing the debate, which is extremely helpful. I hope the Government will get the message that preparing to...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...miscarriages of justice was ever in favour of the bombing and killing of civilians in any circumstances; we were, however, in favour of justice. The first person arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was Paul Hill, one of the Guildford Four, who had been a constituent of my constituency before I was elected, but was in prison when I was elected. Meeting...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...vilification that gets it wrong. We should not be too holier than thou in this country as we already have a considerable number of people held indefinitely under immigration law, and we have anti-terror laws that I believe are highly questionable in many ways when it comes to justice. I hope that the Minister will explain in his reply exactly how a serious campaign on a miscarriage of...

Backbench Business — Nato (4 Jul 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...are dead. Drone aircraft are operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and there is a real threat to the civil liberties of everyone in the world from Guantanamo Bay, extraordinary rendition and anti-terror legislation. That has not made the world a safer or more secure place.

Backbench Business — Iraq War (10th Anniversary) (13 Jun 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: call people enemy combatants, not prisoners of war. Guantanamo Bay was set up. Extraordinary rendition took place. The Homeland Security Act was passed in the USA and a whole raft of anti-terror legislation was passed in this country. Civil rights of people all over the world were damaged by the decision to invade Afghanistan, and that was compounded later by the decision to invade...

Business without Debate — Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Schedule 2 — Consequential provision (7 Mar 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: over many years, most of which have centred on withholding evidence, secrecy or, in some cases, confessional evidence. Since 2001, there has been a significant game change. Draconian anti-terror laws have been introduced in this country and many others. As a result, the most grotesque miscarriages of justice have taken place, including Guantanamo Bay and extraordinary rendition. All the...

Justice and Security Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...power of the secret state: the very large power held by the security services in our society and how, in every western state, they have grown enormously since 2001 and the declaration of the war on terror. Guantanamo Bay is a product of that thinking. It is a most evil institution that has treated people abominably, denied them any right to justice or proper access to judicial process, and...

Justice and Security Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: An intervention has indeed been brought on. Will my right hon. Friend concede that during all the time we have been in Parliament, we have always disagreed on anti-terrorism laws? I continue with my position, because I believe in the power of the courts rather than in secrecy.

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (4 Jul 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...upon Hull North (Diana Johnson), who speaks on behalf of the Opposition. I feel that we should be cautious when we proscribe any organisation. As the Minister pointed out, the effect is that anti-terrorist law rather than normal criminal law applies to that organisation, not just in this country but in other countries. It almost ends up criminalising entire communities, as my right hon....
