Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I really do wonder whether the Prime Minister has read clause 21 of his own Bill. The Good Friday agreement was one of the greatest achievements of this House, led by a Labour Government at that time. The Prime Minister unlawfully prorogued Parliament. He said he would refuse to comply with the law. He threw Northern Ireland under a bus. He ripped up protections for workers’ rights and...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...world, fail to protect jobs and the economy, and fail to protect every region and nation in the United Kingdom. The Bill confirms that Northern Ireland is really in the customs union of the EU and goods will be subjected to tariffs. On Saturday, the Prime Minister said there would be no checks, but yesterday the Brexit Secretary confirmed to the Lords European Union Committee that under...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention, and I am sure she and the whole House would agree that the Good Friday agreement was an historic step forward that has brought relative peace to Northern Ireland. My concern is that this Bill creates a customs frontier between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK—the Prime Minister told the DUP conference that that is something he would not...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: Indeed, the Northern Ireland peace process—the Good Friday agreement—is one of the most significant things that this House has ever done. We should understand the threat that the Bill brings. I was speaking about workers’ rights, on which the Government want us to trust them. The provisions in the Bill will mean that the Government merely have to inform the House if they propose to...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...including a new customs union—a close single market relationship—and guarantees of workers’ rights, consumer standards and environmental protection; and, if I may say so, guarantees that the Good Friday agreement will not be damaged or undermined in any way. A withdrawal agreement was announced, but we do not know yet if the Government have done a deal. What we are sure of is that...

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of his statement, but what we have before us is a rehashed version of previously rejected proposals that would put the Good Friday agreement at risk and trigger a race to the bottom on rights and protections for workers, consumers and our precious environment. Given the seriousness of this issue and the vagueness of the proposals so far, will the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Apr 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...welcome my hon. Friend the new Member for Newport West (Ruth Jones) who is here today. I believe that she is a very worthy successor to the late Paul Flynn. Today marks the 21st anniversary of the Good Friday agreement, a defining moment in Irish history, which allowed peace to prevail. It was a great achievement, and I pay tribute to the work done by the Labour Government at that time,...

United Kingdom’S Withdrawal from the European Union (29 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: We in the Labour party are very proud of the Good Friday agreement and the peace achieved in Northern Ireland as a result, and nobody in the Labour party wants to do anything to undermine this great achievement. As the shadow Solicitor General, my hon. Friend the Member for Torfaen (Nick Thomas-Symonds), said, article 184 of the withdrawal agreement commits the Government to negotiate...

Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: .... I join her in condemning the car bomb attack we have seen in Londonderry at the weekend, and I commend the emergency services and local community for their response. The huge achievement of the Good Friday agreement in reducing violence in Northern Ireland must never be taken for granted. It was an historic step forward, and we cannot take it for granted. The Government still appear not...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...two years of soundbites, indecision and Cabinet infighting, culminating in a series of wasted opportunities, with more and more people losing faith that this Government are capable of delivering a good Brexit deal—and that is just within the Prime Minister’s own Cabinet. It is two years since the referendum and 16 months since article 50 was triggered, and it was only this weekend...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...talks with all parties to restore the Stormont Assembly in Belfast as soon as possible? We also very much hope that any done deal with the DUP in this place respects the overriding priority of the Good Friday agreement to maintain peace in Northern Ireland. A state visit from the Spanish Head of State was announced for July, but can the Prime Minister update the House on whether she can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Mar 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...sending my deepest condolences to Mr Ismay’s wife, Sharon, and his three daughters. The people of Northern Ireland made a profound choice to follow the path of peace when they widely adopted the Good Friday agreement. The actions of an unrepresentative few should not be allowed to change a course that is supported by the overwhelming majority of people in Northern Ireland. Let me now...

Fifa: Britain in the World (1 Jun 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...had an empire, but we no longer have one—that might be news to some Government Members, but I can let them know it in the confidence of this Chamber. Our influence in the world ought to be for good, peace, human rights, environmental protection and narrowing global inequality. We might delude ourselves that the rest of the world love us—they do not. They think we have a predilection...

Estimates 2013-14 — Ministry of Defence: Department for Communities and Local Government — Private Rented Sector (4 Mar 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the neighbouring constituency, I represent inner London where the housing crisis is acute beyond belief. I hold regular advice bureaux, as all Members do, and my walk-in advice bureau on the third Friday of the month frequently lasts for anything from six to eight hours. The vast majority of the people who come have housing issues, and they are devastated by the situation they are in. They...

Tributes to Nelson Mandela (9 Dec 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is a privilege to speak in this debate. I will try to be brief because so many brilliant contributions have been made today by people who fought the good fight to try to rid the world of the scourge of apartheid. I want us to recall the many people who died in South Africa fighting against apartheid, from those who were discriminated against from 1948 onwards, when the National party won...

Regulation of the Private Rented Sector (26 Feb 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the private rented sector, to ensure the return of deposits and to ensure that repairs are carried out in a decent and timely manner and that people can live in security and decency. There are some good landlords in this country who have nothing to fear from this regulation. Indeed, some groups of landlords have been in touch with me to say that they would welcome such legislation because...

Private Tenants and Leaseholders (London) (3 Mar 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...my constituency would cost £250 to £300 per week, and upwards of £400. I have seen some flats at £500 per week. I constantly feel a sense of anger when I am in my advice bureau on Thursdays and Fridays and people come in to see me who are living in privately rented former council properties. I know that the council rent for an exact equivalent of the property would be around £100 per...

Debate on the Address: Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and Defence (23 Nov 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...concerned about the policy on Afghanistan, and as far as I understand it, the vast majority want British troops to come out of Afghanistan because they do not feel that those troops are doing any good there. People do not feel that the troops are doing anything other than laying down their lives for a corrupt Government who are involved with warlords, and possibly with the drugs trade....

[Sir Nicholas Winterton in the Chair] — Sustainable Railways (12 Feb 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of the enormous public investment that has gone into west coast main line and east coast main line and all the other infrastructure developments. That should be seen not as dead money but a good investment in creating both jobs and work and a good transport infrastructure. If such transport infrastructures then run profitably, the public should benefit from the profit, which is the whole...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Northern Ireland (9 May 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., including the nationalist communities, in the 1970s and 1980s played an important part in opening the doors, and that the Hume-Adams accord was an important step towards bringing about the Good Friday agreement? Will he acknowledge that the origins of the troubles in 1968, and all the awful conflict that went on after that and all the deaths that resulted, lie partly in the exclusion of...
