Why does he think that we should legislate to allow an extension to 28 days?

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Weightman Report (Fukushima) (11 Oct 2011)

Backbench Business — [31st Allotted Day]: Human Rights on the Indian Subcontinent (15 Sep 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I commend the Backbench Business Committee for choosing this topic for debate. I am delighted that we have discussed mainly Kashmir and Sri Lanka.

There are 260 million people worldwide who suffer from massive...

Backbench Business — [31st Allotted Day]: Food Security and Famine Prevention (Africa) (15 Sep 2011)

They are showing a real sense of solidarity.

Women and Equalities: Palestine and the United Nations (15 Sep 2011)

Opposition Day — [20th Allotted Day]: Opportunities for the Next Generation (13 Sep 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am glad that my hon. Friend has come on to this point.
