[Mr. Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Human Rights (11 Oct 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...effect of depleted uranium weapons, with fallout from localised burning that takes place if such a weapon is used, and the consequent health problems, which have certainly occurred in southern Iraq in relation to the war in 1991?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iraq (9 Oct 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Minister will be well aware that there are possibly as many as 2 million internally displaced Iraqis and that possibly as many as 2 million people have fled to a place of safety in neighbouring countries. What support is being offered to Jordan and Syria to cope with that very large influx of desperate people? What is being done to support the people who have been displaced within Iraq,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Iraq (8 Oct 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Prime Minister accept that well over 500,000 Iraqi civilians have lost their lives since the invasion started, and that more than 2 million Iraqis have been forced into exile in neighbouring countries, or into internal exile in Iraq? What support is being given to them? What support is being offered to Syria and Jordan, so that they can look after those people? If the Prime Minister...

[Miss Anne Begg in the Chair] — Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (24 Jul 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: is correct that those criticisms be made, but to start a quasi-military or, ultimately, military conflict would be disastrous for the whole region, particularly given the horrors in neighbouring Iraq.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraq (16 Jul 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., so that there is a clear timeline? I know the Secretary of State is reluctant to do that, but clearly the pressure is on for us to specify a point by which all the occupying forces will be out of Iraq and Iraq must decide its own future.

Business of the House (28 Jun 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Leader of the House give us an indication of how soon we can have a substantial debate on foreign affairs so that policy on Iraq, the continuing crisis in the middle east and the plight of the Palestinian people can be discussed, and the new Foreign Secretary can tell us in what direction the Government intend to take foreign policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Iraq (27 Jun 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: When he expects British troops to be finally withdrawn from Iraq.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Iraq (27 Jun 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and that overwhelmingly, British public opinion wants the British troops to be withdrawn and the occupation to end? Does he not think that it is time to give a timetable to bring the troops out of Iraq?

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: Iraq Inquiry (11 Jun 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is a good thing that Parliament is debating the war in Iraq. The war has gone on longer than the second world war went on in Europe and has aroused the greatest passions ever among the public in Britain and the United States. It is worth reminding the House that nearly 2 million people took to the streets of London in February 2003 to demonstrate their views on British participation in...

Asylum Seekers (28 Mar 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...should be ended. There is also the issue of deportation and removal from this country to countries that are not signatories to any of the appropriate conventions. I am talking about Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Algeria. Monitoring the people who are deported to those countries is impossible, and they are not safe when they return there. The first of the two...

Asylum Seekers (28 Mar 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: I find it incredible, particularly when one hears daily of the carnage in Iraq. Indeed, I understand that two days ago 13 asylum seekers from Darfur in Sudan who had been refused asylum in this country were being held at Oakington removal centre. Three of them have removal directions through British Airways to Darfur, where they will face all the horrors of the conflict there. The situation...

Point of Order: Trident (14 Mar 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...with them. Developing nuclear weapons—never mind using them—involves consequences for people's health. I remind the House that a few years ago we debated with great earnestness the situation in Iraq in relation to weapons of mass destruction. A nuclear weapon is automatically a weapon of mass destruction. It cannot be targeted individually at a military target. It can be used only to...

Iran (27 Feb 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: bring about a resolution that went to the Security Council, which led to sanctions against Iran. I see that as a build-up, in exactly the same way as we were told an awful lot of nonsense about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, to create sufficient hype for an attack against Iran. Let us think through the consequences of an attack on Iran. If there is a war or if bombing takes place...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Iraq and the Middle East (21 Feb 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Prime Minister realise that many people outside the House will find it very strange that in his statement he made no reference to the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who have died in the past four years, or to the effect of depleted uranium usage, and the cancer rates in Iraq, or to the remaining cluster bombs? Does he not also think that the current attitude towards Iran and the...

Point of Order: Iraq and the wider Middle East (24 Jan 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., bizarrely, the Prime Minister is not here. There is a motion for the Adjournment of the House and apparently no opportunity for the Government to set out a statement of their case for the war in Iraq and their policies on the middle east. The only way in which the House can express dissent from the Government's policies is by calling a procedural vote on the Adjournment later. I...

Point of Order: Iraq and the wider Middle East (24 Jan 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend has made a good point. My constituency has often welcomed asylum seekers from conflicts all around the world. The Iraqi asylum seekers there include those who came during the Saddam regime and those who have come since. Interestingly, those who fled persecution under the Saddam regime did not, for the most part, support the war, and they certainly do not support the continued...

Point of Order: Iraq and the wider Middle East (24 Jan 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...not the gung-ho President Bush of 2002, whose axis of evil speech promised war all over the world. He was a President desperately trying to find some way forward. He was offered a way out by the Iraq Study Group, which he seemed to reject, and has now gone for the bizarre option of putting in more troops to try to control the situation. President Bush will be for ever remembered as the...

Point of Order: Iraq and the wider Middle East (24 Jan 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., and it ended up with the US being defeated and forced to withdraw. This debate is timely and important. We ought to have an opportunity to vote on the policy that the British people want towards Iraq and the middle east. I want to conclude on the situation in Palestine, which also relates to the middle east. During the Christmas-new year recess, I visited Palestine for a week, of my own...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Iraq (12 Dec 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of State explain quite simply to an increasingly sceptical public why he is opposed to the establishment of a parliamentary inquiry that could take wide-ranging evidence on the policies relating to Iraq, the aftermath of the invasion and what we are going to do about getting the troops out?

Orders of the Day: Foreign Affairs and Defence (22 Nov 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...this debate today. Never before have international affairs so dominated domestic politics. Certainly for all of the last five years it has been one of the major areas of debate, and the war in Iraq and the linked war in Afghanistan are part of that debate. We should be aware that the war in Afghanistan generated an enormous amount of opposition at the beginning and still does, and the war...
