Written Answers — Defence: Iraq (7 Nov 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what information has been provided to the World Health Organisation on the location of depleted uranium munitions in Iraq in (a) 1991 and (b) since March 2003.

Business of the House (2 Nov 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: My right hon. Friend the Leader of the House will have noted that we had a short but interesting debate on Iraq on Monday because the nationalist parties succeeded in using one of their Opposition Supply days for that occasion. Can he assure us that in the next Session we will have regular debates, in Government time, on foreign policy and specifically on the situation in Iraq and...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half-Day] — Iraq (31 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...people's confidence in the democratic process in this country, we should support the motion at 7 o'clock. We should do that for several reasons. The inquiries that are necessary into the war in Iraq might spare us involvement in future conflicts. They will open up the books and the record on what happened in the run-up to the war in 2003. In an earlier intervention, I asked the hon. Member...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half-Day] — Iraq (31 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: No. I have only one minute left. I want the motion to be carried so that we establish a committee of inquiry into all the circumstances surrounding the run-up to the war, the aftermath of the war in Iraq and what we do in future. We live in a world where terrorism has been encouraged by the invasion of Iraq, and, I believe, by the continued presence in Afghanistan. If we want to live in a...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half-Day] — Iraq (31 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the military families campaign—many of whose members have lost loved ones in Iraq in the past three years—has sent a letter to many hon. Members before today's debate supporting the call for an inquiry, because they want to know the truth about what happened to their loved ones, and whether they died for a legal or an illegal war?

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half-Day] — Iraq (31 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the hon. Gentleman also concede that any inquiry should look in some detail at the circumstances under which the UN weapons inspectors, led by Hans Blix, were withdrawn from Iraq in January 2003 and not allowed to go back, having confirmed that they believed with 99 per cent. certainty that there were no such weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?

[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Troop Withdrawal (Iraq) (25 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: I shall be brief because others want to speak, but we should just consider the Lancet report, which came out last week or the week before and which indicated that 650,000 people have died in Iraq since the invasion in 2003. The death rate is accelerating as a result of insurgencies and all the problems associated with the disruption of normal civilian life. There is no prospect of it...

[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Troop Withdrawal (Iraq) (25 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend might well be right about many trade unionists in Iraq, but is he aware of the position of Basra oil workers, who are calling for a British and American withdrawal from Iraq?

Business of the House (19 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: May I press the Leader of the House again on a debate about Iraq and Afghanistan? It seems absolutely extraordinary to many people outside this House that we should have had the report by The Lancet, rumours of policy changes in the USA, and the general's comments about the presence in Iraq, and yet no debate in this House. May I press him, seriously, to have an urgent debate on the presence...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Iraq and Afghanistan Update (10 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Secretary of State give us an estimate of the number of soldiers and civilians—in addition to the tragic loss of British soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan—who have died in both countries since the operation began five years ago in Afghanistan and three and a half years ago in Iraq?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iraq (27 Jun 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: When does the Foreign Secretary expect British and American troops to terminate their tour of duty in Iraq and actually leave?

Human Rights Annual Report 2005 (15 Jun 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...renewable lease to the US for the base to be sited there. I would like to know whether the base on Diego Garcia has ever been used as a staging post for flights from Bagram airbase in Afghanistan, Iraq or anywhere else, through which prisoners on rendition flights have eventually ended up in Guantanamo Bay. If that were the case and there had been human rights abuses as a result, the...

Orders of the Day: Clause 8 — Desertion (22 May 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the point. The decision to deploy British troops is made under the royal prerogative. Parliament was consulted by the Prime Minister before we went into what I believe to be an illegal war in Iraq. Surely the issue is the legality in international law, which has not been argued for and has not been sustained in the case of Iraq.

Orders of the Day: Clause 8 — Desertion (22 May 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does my hon. Friend accept that there is a huge debate, especially among military families who have lost loved ones in Iraq, about not just the legality of the invasion of Iraq but the justice of the operation in the first place? The Committee needs to recognise that that debate is new and serious in our armed forces.

Orders of the Day: Clause 8 — Desertion (22 May 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: I was interested in my hon. Friend's point about legality. If, for example, someone had deserted in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, when, clearly, there was no UN approval, no direct threat to this country and, therefore, no legal state of war, would it be correct to discipline that person?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Iraq (Basra Incident) (8 May 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: I echo the condolences offered by the Secretary of State to those who lost loved ones over the weekend. Is he aware that 109 British personnel, more than 2,000 Americans and tens of thousands of Iraqis have died since war was declared more than three years ago? Can he set out a timetable by which he expects British and American troops to withdraw from Iraq, as their continued presence seems...

Democratic Republic of Congo (19 Apr 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: running on cable channels all over the world, but if I were to step outside this room, stop 10 people in the street and ask them where is the worst conflict in the world, they would talk about Iraq and Afghanistan, and perhaps Colombia; I would be very surprised if anybody mentioned the DRC, or, indeed, any conflict in Africa. I am not minimising the effect of those other conflicts,...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Supplementary Estimates, 2005–06 — Ministry of Defence (20 Mar 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that the removal by the United States of people, particularly from Afghanistan, to Guantanamo Bay and their treatment there are major causes of unrest throughout the region, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan? Does he agree that the only way forward is the immediate closure of Guantanamo Bay and the immediate acceptance of the role of the International Criminal Court and of international...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Supplementary Estimates, 2005–06 — Ministry of Defence (20 Mar 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: I acknowledge the points that the hon. Gentleman is making, but does he accept that many families of soldiers who have tragically been killed in Iraq and others in the services community have serious doubts about the strategy and take part in anti-war meetings because they think that British troops should be withdrawn?
