Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Expenditure Commitment (22 Oct 2018)

James Gray: ...we weren’t in it”. He has said: “NATO, the father of the Cold War in the 1940s, should have shut up shop in 1990”. That was from none other than the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn).

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — BBC: Planning (21 Jun 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am interested in what the hon. Gentleman is saying about flexibility and reducing the threshold to incorporate social housing on small-site developments. Will he explain why Liberal Democrat-controlled Islington council has consistently refused to lower the threshold below 14 units, thus preventing the development of social housing anywhere in the borough? Is it because the council does not...

Bills Presented: Legalisation of Cannabis (18 Jul 2001)

Mr. Jon Owen Jones, supported by Ms Diane Abbott, John Austin, Tony Banks, Jeremy Corbyn, Paul Flynn, Dr. Ian Gibson, Mr. Mike Hancock, Dr. Brian Iddon, Lynne Jones, Austin Mitchell and Dr. Jenny Tonge presented a Bill to legalise and regulate the sale, supply and use of cannabis for recreational and therapeutic purposes; and for connected purposes: And the same was read the First time; and...

"Health of the Nation" (8 Jul 1992)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is the Secretary of State aware that there is a disturbing increase in asthma and related problems among children, particularly those living in inner-city environments? Is she prepared to undertake a serious study of the link between asthma in young children in inner-city environments, the increase in pollution caused by traffic, and inadequate housing? Until now, in response to parliamentary...

Foreign Affairs Council (28 Nov 1985)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Foreign Secretary mentioned that discussions took place on increasing trade with Cyprus. How is that trade with Cyprus to be increased and did the Ministers discuss the continuing and appalling division of Cyprus and the presence of Turkish troops in the northern part of Cyprus? Is it appropriate for countries within the EC to trade, possibly illegally, with the Turkish federated state of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Contadora Peace Process (21 Oct 1987)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Minister not agree that now is the time for the British Government to make a clear and unequivocal declaration that they condemn American policy in the region, that they support the peace process now going on there, and that, as a measure of good faith, they will restore British aid to the people of Nicaragua to enable them to get out of the appalling poverty into which the war...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Mar 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: In November, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced a rough sleeping taskforce and £28 million for three pilot schemes to tackle homelessness. I understand that, four months on, the taskforce has not yet met and not a penny has been spent on that programme. There is a homelessness crisis in this country: rough sleeping has doubled since 2010. Does the Prime Minister not think it is a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: In case the Prime Minister has forgotten, my question was about buses. Since 2010, her Government have cut 46% from bus budgets in England and passenger numbers have fallen, and, among the elderly and disabled, they have fallen by 10%. Her Government belatedly committed to keeping the free bus pass, but a bus pass is not much use if there is not a bus. Does she think it is fair that bus fares...

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...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) (No. 2) Bill (25 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: The hon. Gentleman will recall that, in the debate on the Football (Disorder) Bill last week, we had a similar discussion about the role of people's past records in deciding what sort of justice would be available to them—in that case, for a police officer. Does the amendment that the hon. Gentleman supports mean that any examination of people's previous records could not be taken into...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 93 — Powers to require removal of disguises: Great Britain (26 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: I agree with most of what my hon. Friend says, but this is not just a matter of Home Office officials' in-trays; rather, it is as if a storeroom of Bills has been festering for a long time and someone has had the bright idea of pushing them through, given the opportunity—and this is the opportunity. After the declaration of some sort of state of national emergency, the Bill has been drafted...

Iraq (Attorney-General's Advice) (9 Mar 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: Has the hon. Gentleman had a chance to read Hans Blix's statement on the way in which he was removed from Iraq while still undertaking weapons inspection, and replaced by the Iraq survey group, which did not find any weapons of mass destruction? Mr. Blix is concerned that the real aim of the United States and Britain was always to go to war, rather than to achieve some kind of peaceful...

Heffer and Mr. Dennis Skinner presented a Bill to confer general powers on all local authorities; to restrict the powers of the District Auditor in relation to those authorities; and for purposes connected therewith: And the same was read the...

Local Government Finance: Location of Pornographic Material (19 Jul 1989)

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Aid Reviews (1 Mar 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Secretary of State will recognise that among the most exploited workers in the world are Dalits, garment makers and brick makers working in the very poorest countries. Their way out of poverty is organisation, better employment practices and decent wages. In that light, why is the right hon. Gentleman cutting money for the International Labour Organisation, which provides an important...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Rule of Law (26 Mar 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Attorney-General agree that it is simply not possible or right to start picking and choosing which decisions of the European Court of Human Rights we agree or disagree with? We are signed up to that charter, which guarantees the human rights of people all over Europe, including in this country. Surely that is something of which we should be proud rather than trying to undermine it...

Bill Presented: Railways Bill (26 Jun 2013)

Presentation and First Reading ( Standing Order No. 57) Caroline Lucas, supported by John McDonnell, Ian Lavery, Katy Clark, Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Elfyn Llwyd, Jonathan Edwards, Hywel Williams, Kelvin Hopkins, John Cryer, Grahame M. Morris and Martin Caton, presented a Bill to require the Secretary of State to assume control of passenger rail franchises when they come up for renewal; and for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: European Court of Human Rights (17 Dec 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will the Secretary of State think more carefully about this issue? Were Britain to withdraw from the European convention on human rights, and consequently, from the European Court, where would our moral stature be in condemning human rights abuses in any other European country, and what would be the future for human rights in this country? Does he not think that, instead, he should be more...

Morris and Martin Caton, presented a Bill to require the Secretary of State to assume control of passenger rail franchises when they come up for renewal; and for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 May 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: The question that I also put to the Prime Minister, which perhaps he was not listening to, was what he was going to do—[Interruption.] I asked what he was going to do about the UK-administered tax havens that receive large sums of money from dodgy sources, which should and must be closed down, as should any tax evasion in the City of London. We need a British Government who are prepared to...
