Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Detention without Charge (11 Jun 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: In the Home Secretary's consultations over the period of detention without trial for terror suspects, will he bear in mind the fact that many of us feel that 28 days is already rather too long for detention without trial, and that the idea of extending the period to as long as 90 days could be counter-productive in gaining the co-operation and support of many in the country who wish to be...

Orders of the Day: Foreign Affairs and Defence (12 Nov 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...allegation that there were weapons of mass destruction there and because we chose to follow US foreign policy. The war has done immense damage to this country and to the USA, and it has not reduced terrorism or extremism—indeed, it has probably had exactly the opposite effect throughout the region and in the wider world. We should look a bit more seriously at how we can withdraw from...

Written Answers — Home Department: Terrorism: Arrests (17 Mar 2008)

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many of those arrested in connection with suspected offences under (a) section 57 and (b) section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000 have been (i) released without charge, (ii) charged, (iii) convicted and given custodial sentences, (iv) convicted and given non-custodial sentences and (v) recommended for deportation or made subject...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Guildford four and the Birmingham six—which were all based on confessional evidence. In the case of the Guildford four, the evidence was drawn while they were in detention under the prevention of terrorism Act.

Afghanistan (29 Oct 2008)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the war. We have thus suffered a serious loss of liberties. That applies not just to the people who unfortunately ended up in Guantanamo Bay, but to every country that has pursued the absurd war on terror. These things are dangerous, and they go on for a long time. The war has now actively spread over into Pakistan and we have the ludicrous situation that occurred a couple of weeks ago:...

Debate on the Address: Foreign Affairs and Defence (10 Dec 2008)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...to the wars that have so disfigured our society. That means a process of disarmament and a process of respect for law. It does not mean continuing what I believe to be the absolutely crazy war on terror into which President Bush led us after the dreadful events of 2001.

Employment Retention: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (3 Mar 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: My right hon. Friend will recall the many debates that used to be held about the continuation of the prevention of terrorism Acts, which were routinely renewed every six months, in which everybody said that they were against it and deeply reluctant, but went ahead and did it nevertheless. Eventually the error of their ways was seen and there was a different approach, a different attitude and...

Employment Retention: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (3 Mar 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: I will be brief, because there is very little time. We have been over the Prevention of Terrorism Act in the past. We have ritually renewed it every six months. Eventually, people began to realise that there must be some other way of doing things. As a result of post-9/11 syndrome, we passed various pieces of draconian legislation. We passed legislation allowing control orders to be imposed,...

Debate on the Address: Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and Defence (23 Nov 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and safer streets in our society, but that is simply not the case. The fact that a number of young Muslims in our country are continually stopped and searched because they are perceived to be terror suspects leads not to greater cohesion, but to greater division and suspicion, in our society. The issues that unite large numbers of people in our society, particularly young Muslims, are...

Horn of Africa (26 Jan 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...much higher degree of involvement is needed. I conclude by differing with the hon. Member for The Wrekin. The beginning of his contribution seemed to be almost a counsel of despair that the war on terror must be pursued all over the place. I do not think that it has been overwhelmingly successful in either Iraq or Afghanistan. It certainly has not been successful in bringing about a...

Carers (Identification and Support): Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (14 Jul 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...be sensible to give a signal that we intend to reduce the length of pre-charge detention, by decreasing it to 14 days today rather than reaffirming the 28-day order? We reaffirmed the prevention of terrorism Acts throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Every time we said that the matter would be re-examined. Maybe this time, we should do something.

Privilege: Backbench Business — [3rd Allotted Day] — UK Armed Forces in Afghanistan (9 Sep 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the then Secretary of State for Defence, Geoffrey Hoon, said that he would set out the aims of the mission. He said: "We aim to do everything possible to eliminate the threat posed by international terrorism, to deter states from supporting, harbouring, or acting complicitly with international terrorist groups, to reintegrate Afghanistan as a responsible member of the international...

Privilege: Backbench Business — [3rd Allotted Day] — UK Armed Forces in Afghanistan (9 Sep 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...-has come up to me and said that. Indeed, there is a sense of grievance among the Muslim community in Britain, partly because of this war but partly because of the substantial amounts of anti-terror legislation that have been a product of the war. They feel much less secure than they did in the past and much more isolated from the rest of the community. We should bear it in mind that...

Privilege: Backbench Business — [3rd Allotted Day] — UK Armed Forces in Afghanistan (9 Sep 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: Everybody wants protection from terrorism. Everybody wants protection from insecurity. My point is that our presence-the presence of British troops-in Afghanistan, and formerly in Iraq, has not made the streets of this country safer. The anti-terror legislation is often seen as intrusive. We should use the criminal law against people who commit criminal acts, rather than promoting large...

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (2 Mar 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...people are. I do not propose to discuss any of those cases; that is not the point. The point is one of principle relating to what we as a Parliament are doing. If this measure is part of the war on terror, I ask Members to remember what the hon. Member for Newark (Patrick Mercer) just said about the experience of internment in Northern Ireland. Indeed, for that matter, there is also the...

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (2 Mar 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...charged with? Oh, I cannot tell you that.” Hello? Let us get real. If we believe in a proper judicial process, let us practise a proper judicial process. I feel very reluctant to support any anti-terror law that departs from the principle that anyone who has been charged must know what the charge is, must be able to defend himself against that charge, and must be either found guilty or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (7 Jun 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: In my right hon. Friend’s years in the Home Office, in which he must have been involved in many discussions about anti-terrorism legislation, how much consideration was given to the implementation of the criminal law in open court rather than the creation of a series of special courts, special measures and all the suspicion that surrounds them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (7 Jun 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way again. Does he not accept that there is a major concern about anti-terrorism legislation with special courts and special advocates, and in which information is withheld from the defendant? The barrister acting on behalf of the defendant is not allowed to reveal to them the nature of the evidence or the case against them. Therein lies a road to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (7 Jun 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I should first apologise to the House for missing the Home Secretary’s introductory speech, but I have been present for the rest of the debate. I welcome this opportunity to discuss anti-terrorism law. I think I am the only Member currently in the Chamber who has been here long enough to have voted against the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, which was seen at the time as the low point in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (7 Jun 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...imprisoned or abused, or if it is likely that they would suffer such a fate if they went back, we have a clear duty of protection to them under international law. Under the procedures of anti-terror legislation, someone who is suspected of terrorist activity or of harbouring plans for such activity can be detained virtually indefinitely under immigration law. Under the memorandums of...
