Grenfell Tower: Fifth Anniversary (16 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am interested in what the Minister says about the remedial works being done. What compensation will be made available to people who, as I outlined, have paid unbelievably excessive levels of insurance, through no fault of their own, and are seriously out of pocket and unable to continue doing so?

Grenfell Tower: Fifth Anniversary (16 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I welcome this debate and the work done by many Members of Parliament to bring it forward and by the hon. Member for Leeds East (Richard Burgon) in particular to secure it. We had a debate in Government time in 2019, after the general election had been announced, and the Prime Minister spoke for the Government on the issue of Grenfell; it seems a bit strange that we now have to rely on...

Grenfell Tower: Fifth Anniversary (16 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am alarmed by what my hon. Friend says about a 55-storey building having a single staircase, which I believe would make it impossible both to fight a fire and get people out. Why was the building given permission, and who authorised it? Was there a fire assessment in advance of permission being granted?

Rail Strikes (15 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend must be aware of the anger that many people who work in the rail industry feel—those who clean and repair the carriages, those who repair the track and those who provide the catering that many Members of this House enjoy—at being told basically to take a pay cut and face compulsory redundancies at a time when billions has been poured into the train operating companies,...

Rail Strikes (15 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Secretary of State rightly says that billions were pumped into the railways during the covid pandemic. That money kept the system going, and a lot of people worked very hard to keep it going. The train operating companies were preserved and supported, and they did very well during that period, as did many others in the private sector. Why is he now punishing the people who kept the...

Migration and Economic Development Partnership with Rwanda (15 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Instead of attacking lawyers who represent desperate and frightened people and attacking courts who give judgment on the European convention on human rights, why cannot the Home Secretary just say very clearly that her Government support the European convention on human rights as a protection of the rights of everybody among the signatory nations and that this Rwanda policy is not just a...

Council of Europe — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (15 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is also important in this context to have as much contact as possible, through the Council of Europe, with Russian human rights campaigners and activists, so that they feel that there are people who are interested in the difficult situation they find themselves in?

Council of Europe — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (15 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am pleased that we are having this debate, and to be an alternate member of the Council of Europe. I have found the experience very interesting. As I said to the leader of the UK delegation, the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell), in an intervention, the lack of information, understanding and publicity about the Council must be addressed. The Council of Europe is a big body and it spends...

Council of Europe — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (15 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one of the problems with the Council of Europe is that its work, importance and role are not fully understood, even by Members of this House, never mind the general public? I know he has worked hard on that. We need to have a much more active public relations initiative, explaining the value of the Council of Europe, its powers and the changes it can, and...

Transgender Conversion Therapy — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (13 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, particularly with the historical references. Those of us who were here during the grim days of section 28 remember just how horrible it was, and how brutally the media then treated LGBT communities. The proposal to not include trans people in the conversion therapy ban is unbelievably wrong, divisive and short-sighted. We need to be very clear,...

Transgender Conversion Therapy — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (13 Jun 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Will my hon. Friend give way?

NATO and International Security (19 May 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Would my right hon. Friend agree that the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, originally conceived in 1968 under the Government of Harold Wilson, was an enormous step forward and is universally supported by most non-nuclear powers around the world, and that Britain could make a very positive contribution to the NPT review conference in August this year? Would he also agree that it would be...

NATO and International Security (19 May 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank my right hon. Friend for the remark he just made about future diplomacy. Does he not think that this moment, when defence expenditure is rising so rapidly all around the world, presents a big problem, and that we should also look at the role that the United Nations could and should play and regret the long delay between the start of the awful Russian invasion of Ukraine and any kind...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I will try to keep within the 10-minute limit that you have requested, Madam Deputy Speaker. The day of the state opening of Parliament is quite surreal. We have all the pomp, the gold coaches and the ancient Rolls-Royces out on the streets, and a Prime Minister who comes into the Chamber and tells us that he has got right all the big calls on covid and all the big calls on finance and then...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am interested in what the right hon. Gentleman is saying. I assume he is talking about fracking when he talks about onshore gas production, and suggesting that we leave it to individual landowners and local authorities, but the polluting effects of fracking do not stop at the borders of somebody’s land or at a local authority border. Fracking pollutes the aquifers and it can and does...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am pleased that the right hon. Gentleman has raised the issue of sewage pollution in our rivers. Does he not think the solution is to take all our water companies back into public ownership and stop pouring millions of pounds of our water costs into the profits of the private sector, often in overseas locations?

Referral of Prime Minister to Committee of Privileges (21 Apr 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, while the Prime Minister was organising parties in No. 10 and showing complete contempt for his own rules, working-class communities and young people in overcrowded flats all over Britain were in lockdown? The mental health crisis that we still have around us was intensified by the very strict operation of those rules, and many young people faced massive...

Drug Crime: British Nationals Detained Overseas (20 Apr 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Could the Minister assure the House that the Government are in serious negotiations and talks with the Government of Iran about the release of Mehran Raoof, who I mentioned, and others whose names are not revealed but are nevertheless equally meritorious of being released?

Drug Crime: British Nationals Detained Overseas (20 Apr 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: May I draw my hon. Friend’s attention to the case of Mehran Raoof, a trade union activist who is in jail in Iran? He was not released when others were released. The Foreign Secretary rather erroneously said that he did not want his name to be made public. It has been made absolutely clear through Amnesty International that his family do want his name to be made public, they do want a public...

Global Migration Challenge (19 Apr 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: Is it not a moral requirement for the Home Secretary to explain why she will deport people who have arrived in this country, fleeing from desperate wars, famine and problems, prepared to risk all to cross a dangerous sea? Do they not deserve a sense of humanity from the Home Secretary, and not to be deported to incarceration in Rwanda?
