Grenfell Tower (22 Jun 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...are dead. It is both a tragedy and an outrage, because every single one of those deaths could and should have been avoided. The Grenfell Tower residents themselves had raised concerns about the lack of fire safety in the block. The Grenfell Action Group had warned: “It is a truly terrifying thought but the Grenfell Action Group firmly believe that only a catastrophic event will...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Session we commemorate the Members we have lost in the previous year. Sadly, this year must also mark the passing of those we have lost in horrific events in recent days and weeks. The fire at Grenfell Tower in west London has killed at least 79 people. What makes it both a tragedy and an outrage is that every single one of those deaths could have been avoided. Something has gone...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...on whether she can still expect the United States’ Head of State to visit any time this year, or any time in the future? It is just a question. As I said earlier, public service workers, such as fire service, police and NHS staff, receive huge praise when they respond to terrorist attacks and other major incidents, but it is not good enough to be grateful to our public service...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...-sighted. I thank him very much. The changes would only have moved funding between rural and urban forces, when the real issue is the £2.3 billion cut to police budgets in the past five years. Our firefighters did an outstanding job at the Grenfell Tower fire, but they worked incredibly long shifts, in part because there are 600 fewer firefighters and 10 fewer fire stations in...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...blocks. I do not suppose that many Members of this House live in tower blocks, but just think for a moment of the sense of fear that so many people would have had when they saw the Lakanal House fire—people living on the 15th, 16th or 17th floor, knowing that there is no fire ladder that can reach them and no helicopter that can land. They are reliant on being able to get out or the...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...as a result. We need properly funded, good-quality public services in this country. The Prime Minister says that legal support will be made available to the families affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, but they should have had access to legal aid beforehand. When they were raising their desperate concerns about fire safety, they were ignored by a Conservative-controlled local authority....

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...emergency departments. When they saddle young people with more debt, it impedes their ability to buy a home or start a family. When they fail to build housing and cap housing benefit, homelessness and the number of families in temporary accommodation increase. When they slash local authorities’ budgets, leisure centres, libraries and children’s centres close. When they close...

amendment of the law (16 Mar 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...because of his Government’s neglect of river basin management and the flood defences that are so necessary. Obviously, we welcome any money that is now going into flood defences, but I hope that that money will also be accompanied by a reversal of the cuts in the fire service that make it so difficult for our brilliant firefighters to protect people in their homes, and a reversal of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Jan 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that looks at everything, including upland management, making people’s homes more flood resilient, and more properly funded protection schemes? Does the Prime Minister at least agree that the fire and rescue service, which has done such a great job over the past few weeks in all parts of this country, should now be given a statutory duty to deal with floods, to help us through any...

Delegated Legislation: New Clause 1 — TfL assets for development (disclosure) (16 Mar 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in the earlier debate on new clause 1. Increasing use of the tube means increased trains, increased sidings and increased maintenance depots. If all the infrastructure facilities are sold off in a fire sale of public assets to bolster the income of Transport for London, Londoners will be short-changed and we will have greater transport chaos, not less.

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Backbench Business — US-UK Mutual Defence Agreement (6 Nov 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...actually own any individual missiles, but purchased the rights to 58 missiles from a common pool held at the US Strategic Weapons facility at the Kings Bay Submarine Base, Georgia. British Trident submarines also conduct their missile test firings at the US Eastern Test Range, off the coast of Florida.” The obvious point is that the claim that Britain has an independent nuclear...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Backbench Business — US-UK Mutual Defence Agreement (6 Nov 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...before 1958. Whether it was after that, I doubt, and it certainly was not the case at all after Polaris came in during the 1960s. That was a US import, as is the current technology. Could Britain fire off a nuclear weapon independently of the United States? No, I do not believe that it could. I believe that it would require the active participation of the US military and US Administration...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — [Unallotted day] — The UK’s Relationship with Africa (19 Jun 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...DRC. Although an agreement was reached recently on a peace and reconciliation process, that has to be monitored carefully. Only a week ago, on 11 and 12 June, there was fighting between Rwandan and Congolese forces in which there was an exchange of fire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Jun 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...been huge changes and improvements in the DRC and I commend him for his work on violence against women and rape as a weapon of war, but is he not concerned that last week there was an exchange of fire between Rwandan forces and the DRC, and that Rwanda still appears to have some military ambitions in that region? Will he put pressure on it to desist?

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...professionals who want to live in an inner-city area of London but can no longer afford to do so. There is a knock-on effect on the London labour market. I have been to the Royal Mail sorting offices in my constituency, the local hospital—on many occasions—the fire station, the police station, social services, the council departments and other places, and have asked people...

Bangladesh (16 Jan 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...trade unions from this country and Bangladesh about the abominable working conditions and safety of buildings, to which the hon. Lady rightly drew our attention, and the loss of life as a result of fire. We must bear all that in mind. Before I conclude, let me turn to the violence that has been committed against human rights activists and religious and ethnic minorities, and to the numbers...

Christmas Adjournment (19 Dec 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...area relates to points raised by the hon. Member for Harrow East about the condition and maintenance of private sector properties. Yesterday, I met an interesting gentleman from the Electrical Safety Council, who told me his concerns—they were held by the fire service and many others, too—about the lack of regular electrical checks in the private rented sector. It can often be...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Backbench business — UK Trade & Investment (12 Sep 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Baghdad arms fair only eight months later. The Minister at the time told me that it was good business. We went ahead with that arms fair, and only two years later we were at war with Iraq. No doubt some of the equipment that was being fired back at British troops had been sold to Iraq by Britain. What goes around comes around. There is a disproportion in many of the issues. Arms exports...

Israel and the Peace Process — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (27 Mar 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have never supported anybody who fires rockets at someone, but I ask my hon. Friend to get a sense of reality and to compare rockets with the 1,500 people who were killed during Operation Cast Lead, when F16 jets using phosphorous bombs killed innocent women and children. I am not in favour of rockets or bombing. We will achieve peace only if there is real recognition of the rights of and...

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what steps he is taking to ensure effective co-operation between the Ministry of Defence Fire Service and fire and rescue services in the event of serious fire incidents at defence (a) research and (b) storage facilities; and if he will make a statement; (2) whether he has met officials from the Health and Safety Executive as part of its...
