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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...-city community constituency, as do many other colleagues, and I am very proud to represent that area. The events of 2001, the invasion of Afghanistan, the invasion of Iraq, the Bush-led war on terror, the axis of evil speech and similar things have had an enormous effect on community relations. They have also generated a degree of Islamophobia within our society and continue to do so,...

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: New Clause 3 — Expiry and repeal of TPIM powers (5 Sep 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...going down this endless route of special legislation? I have been in this House long enough to have voted against most of these pieces of legislation, starting with the renewal of the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974. I did so because it departed from the criminal law and essentially involved the executive powers of Ministers, which I am sure she will agree is a...

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: New Clause 3 — Expiry and repeal of TPIM powers (5 Sep 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I welcome the inquiry that is to be undertaken by my right hon. Friend’s Committee. May I ask him also to consider the fact that the country has had renewable emergency anti-terrorism legislation for 37 years, that the legislation has always been renewed six-monthly, annually or after whatever period has been specified, and that on each of those occasions we have moved further from the...

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: New Clause 3 — Expiry and repeal of TPIM powers (5 Sep 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Benchers in this respect—we should at least have a 12-month review. One has to remember the atmosphere in this House in which we considered the question of special legislation. The Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was passed after the Birmingham pub bombings. They were appalling, they were disgraceful, and in that fevered atmosphere the House passed that Act, which...

Devolved Administrations (Armed Forces Covenant Reports): New Clause 4 — Status of Director and Lord Chancellor (2 Nov 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: The right hon. Gentleman is making a strong point. However, the Guildford Four were actually the first people to be arrested and convicted under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974, which meant that they were specifically denied access to anyone at the time of arrest. That was not the case with the Birmingham Six, who instead were abused in the police station.

North Africa and the Near and Middle East (28 Nov 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: June 2011: “The commission found that arbitrary arrests—in many cases pre-dawn raids conducted by armed and masked security…forces—showed the ‘existence of an operational plan’ to terrorize protestors and opposition members. It concluded that the arrests and detentions ‘could not have happened without the knowledge of higher echelons of the command structure’ of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Victims and Witnesses Strategy (30 Jan 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: There are many people who are victims of crime, but no prosecution follows because they are victims of racist harassment, neighbourhood terrorism or domestic violence. There is a problem of getting independent witnesses and therefore getting a prosecution. Within the context of the reforms, is the Secretary of State prepared to consider enhanced funding and support for professional witness...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Foreign Affairs and International Development (15 May 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...poor, extremely corrupt and, to some extent, dominated by drug users, and the streets of our country have not been made any safer. Like many other countries, we have passed a series of anti-terror laws that are draconian to say the least. We have to learn a lesson about what intervention means and what the war on terror, inspired by George Bush in 2002, means for Afghanistan, Iraq and the...

Backbench Business — [1st Allotted Day]: Mental Health (14 Jun 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...I intervened on the Minister on the question of deaths when people are in care or in custody, and I am looking forward to his response. As a society, we have to think a bit more carefully about the terror that some people live their lives in, which ends in a lonely suicide. These are people who were unable to seek help or support from anybody else, and were probably reading in the papers,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: European Convention on Human Rights (19 Jun 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...hon. Gentleman, but I cannot help him by describing what the Liberal Democrats are doing today, because I am not responsible for them. However, having been involved in a lot of human rights, anti-terrorism and immigration debates over the many years I have been in Parliament, I know that there are different allies in different Parliaments. Sometimes there are Conservatives one agrees with,...

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (4 Jul 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...upon Hull North (Diana Johnson), who speaks on behalf of the Opposition. I feel that we should be cautious when we proscribe any organisation. As the Minister pointed out, the effect is that anti-terrorist law rather than normal criminal law applies to that organisation, not just in this country but in other countries. It almost ends up criminalising entire communities, as my right hon....

Justice and Security Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: An intervention has indeed been brought on. Will my right hon. Friend concede that during all the time we have been in Parliament, we have always disagreed on anti-terrorism laws? I continue with my position, because I believe in the power of the courts rather than in secrecy.

Justice and Security Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...power of the secret state: the very large power held by the security services in our society and how, in every western state, they have grown enormously since 2001 and the declaration of the war on terror. Guantanamo Bay is a product of that thinking. It is a most evil institution that has treated people abominably, denied them any right to justice or proper access to judicial process, and...

Business without Debate — Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Schedule 2 — Consequential provision (7 Mar 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: over many years, most of which have centred on withholding evidence, secrecy or, in some cases, confessional evidence. Since 2001, there has been a significant game change. Draconian anti-terror laws have been introduced in this country and many others. As a result, the most grotesque miscarriages of justice have taken place, including Guantanamo Bay and extraordinary rendition. All the...

Backbench Business — Iraq War (10th Anniversary) (13 Jun 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: call people enemy combatants, not prisoners of war. Guantanamo Bay was set up. Extraordinary rendition took place. The Homeland Security Act was passed in the USA and a whole raft of anti-terror legislation was passed in this country. Civil rights of people all over the world were damaged by the decision to invade Afghanistan, and that was compounded later by the decision to invade...

Backbench Business — Nato (4 Jul 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...are dead. Drone aircraft are operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and there is a real threat to the civil liberties of everyone in the world from Guantanamo Bay, extraordinary rendition and anti-terror legislation. That has not made the world a safer or more secure place.

Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 10 — Fees for criminal record certificates etc (15 Oct 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...miscarriages of justice was ever in favour of the bombing and killing of civilians in any circumstances; we were, however, in favour of justice. The first person arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was Paul Hill, one of the Guildford Four, who had been a constituent of my constituency before I was elected, but was in prison when I was elected. Meeting...

Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 10 — Fees for criminal record certificates etc (15 Oct 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...vilification that gets it wrong. We should not be too holier than thou in this country as we already have a considerable number of people held indefinitely under immigration law, and we have anti-terror laws that I believe are highly questionable in many ways when it comes to justice. I hope that the Minister will explain in his reply exactly how a serious campaign on a miscarriage of...

Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Programme — [Jim Sheridan in the Chair] (12 Nov 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...region. Some rather zany commentators in the US think that Iran should get nuclear weapons on the basis that it would create a regional balance and then we would move on. Balancing nuclear weapons terror is not a way to bring about peace. I thank the hon. Member for Kettering for securing the debate, which is extremely helpful. I hope the Government will get the message that preparing to...

Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill (Programme) (No. 3): Clause 151 — Compensation for miscarriages of justice (4 Feb 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Commercial Services Union group meeting but will return, I was very involved in the Birmingham and Guildford cases. Indeed, Paul Hill, who was the first person ever arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 1974, was a constituent of mine. I went through the whole business of the campaign, and eventually those people were released and compensation was paid. However, I have to say two...
