Orders of the Day — Identity Cards Bill (20 Dec 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in any way. I ask Members to think carefully about the kind of society that we are creating with the Bill, and about what kind of society we want to live in. The Bill will not solve crime, fraud or terrorism; it represents the comfort zone of the high-technology security industry, which will be easily hacked into. A much better form of security is protection of the individual and respect...

Support For Members Who Have Chosen Not To Take Their Seats (10 Mar 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...circumstances, the latest being Robert McCartney. Every loss of life and every act of violence is a tragedy. All the sanctions and illiberal Acts that were applied in the 1970s—the prevention of terrorism Acts, the emergency powers Act, all the orders, internment, the broadcasting ban, the travel ban and all the other measures did not take matters forward very much. What started to take...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 6 — Training for Terrorism (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...which would improve clause 8. My final point applies to the whole Bill. The tenor of the Bill is to try to charge people as widely as possible with advocacy of, preparation for or association with terrorism, which will alienate large numbers of people who already feel quite alienated from normal British society. Many young Muslims who live in inner-urban areas already feel alienated. Are...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 12 — Trespassing etc. on nuclear sites (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: I listened to the Minister and I understand the amendments that have been accepted. I wrote down his words, which were "purposes of terrorism on entering the base". There were many occasions during the Greenham Common women's camp when women climbed over or cut the fence and entered the base to paint flowers on nuclear missiles and hang drapes on tanks—entirely peaceful things. Under...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 12 — Trespassing etc. on nuclear sites (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...wish to make on the subject. The hon. Gentleman made a serious point about for what offence the protesters would be prosecuted. The Minister referred to people entering a site for the purposes of terrorism. He will correct me if I or the hon. Member for Buckingham have misunderstood the provision, but my reading is that everyone who enters a designated nuclear site—whether a power...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 17 — Commission of offences abroad (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...they are being granted a place of safety. On the question of interpretation, all those who took part in the struggle in Chechnya and who sought asylum in this country from Russia have been labelled terrorists by the Russian Government, whether or not they took part in any military activity. It is a convenient label for the Russian Government to use. The same applies to those who in the...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 17 — Commission of offences abroad (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that genocide and torture are clearly defined offences in international law, so they can legitimately be prosecuted in this country, whereas, as he rightly pointed out, there is no definition of terrorism that can be applied either in this country or anywhere else, so the information that we would have to rely on would be subjective?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraq (12 Dec 2005)

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill: Clause 1 — Encouragement of Terrorism (15 Feb 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Sri Lanka and frequently wish to hold meetings to discuss it. Under the Bill, people attending those meetings could be construed to be supporting the Tamil Tigers and therefore glorifying a form of terrorism. Does my Friend accept that that would present a real danger for the people in that community, and that it would have the effect of reducing or preventing legitimate public debate...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill: Clause 1 — Encouragement of Terrorism (15 Feb 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does my hon. Friend agree that the effect of the prevention of terrorism Acts—and, indeed, the current proscribed lists—was often to choke off legitimate political debate and drive some people into the arms of extremists and others with bad intentions, whereas they should be brought into mainstream political discussion and debate?

Terrorism Bill (16 Mar 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...organisations in other countries. We had the leadership of the African National Congress, the SWAPO leadership, people from the Congress party in India and many others who have been condemned for terrorism. In public meetings from time immemorial through to the present, they would make speeches about liberation struggles in other parts of the world that could be construed as glorifying...

Terrorism Bill (16 Mar 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...elected Members of the Palestinian Authority to address a meeting in the House, as many of us have done over the years. Their speeches describing the situation could be construed as glorifying terrorism. I do not necessarily think that would be the case, but it could happen. We are moving into dangerous, uncharted waters with the Bill. Perverse prosecutions will bring about serious...

Democratic Republic of Congo (19 Apr 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...dangerous. Several speakers mentioned street children. Unless we do something to support street children—the victims of war—by giving them hope, education and housing, they will become the terror gangs, criminals and fighters of tomorrow. They know no other course. Finally, we must consider what the international mineral companies are doing and where coltan, diamonds, gold and all...

Middle East (7 Jun 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Palestine. It does not. One side has nuclear weapons and F-16 jets, and is high-security in every sense, while the other has very little indeed. Is it surprising that some people are driven to terrorism? I remember very well a discussion that my hon. Friend and I had when we visited Gaza a few years ago. I have been there since, but on that visit, we put it plainly that we thought that...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...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 world of perpetual wars throughout this century, we are...

Bill Presented: Northern Ireland (St. Andrews Agreement) (No. 2) Bill (27 Mar 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Unionists. I have been a Member of the House since 1983 and like many other Members I have sat here and opposed many of the pieces of legislation to do with Northern Ireland: the Prevention of Terrorism Acts, the broadcasting ban, the travel ban and all sorts of legislation designed to support the idea that there could be a military solution in Northern Ireland, which suppression of speech...
